Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 U1HBR1DGE HERAID Solurdey, Match 3, J-ctmily more than two years I fought an unrelenting and usually losing battle with the. oflice pop machine. 1 It was a particularly vi- cious piece of equipment crabby, mean-tempered, an- cient in years, and an out- and-out miser. Several times a day I'd slip in my nickels, dimes and quarters. The machine would pilp them down noisily, then sit back with a smug smirk on its silly face, refusing to give up its hottles. I pounded, kicked asid cuss- ed with absolutely no effect. Defeated, I'd go get one of the men, explain the situation and lead him back to the ma- chine. He'd open the little glass dear, tug on a bottle, and al- most invariably the machine would give up its goodies without a murmur. With a condescending smile at my stupidity, the feller would walk off and the ma- chine would then dissolve into grunts, creaks and groans that I know perfectly well were gusts of hilarious laugh- ter. A few months ago the ma- chine, heady with success, got too smart for its own good and tried out a few of its tricks on the menfolk. Shortly thereafter it was banished to the nether regions in disgrace. A slick new model took it. place a tall, slender, ele- gant swinger who turned out to be pretty free with his fa- vors, dispensing pop right and left at the drop of a couple of dimes. family life by MAUREEN JAMIESON After my trouble with the first machine, I basked in the unshine of No. 2's generos- ty.

The blow fell last Saturday, when I sashayed over to the machine to take ,on my first load for the day. I slipped my money in ttie slot, reached for my and had my coins tossed scornfully back in my face. A passing male took pity on me and put in a quarter. I ailed for it to come back so I could say nyaa-I-iold-you sn but nothing happened. The guy then placed his hand Oil the bottle, gave a gentle tug and out came the pop, easy as you please. Almost every time I've gone to that rotten machine this week I have been given the same frigid treatment. Overnight, that miserable bucket of bolts has turned from a delightfully ob- liging friend into a fanatical nisle chauvinist pig, and the terrible tiling about it is f shall probably never know why!
