If it is small enough then in one place or another it is probably being dispensed from vending machines, when I first thought about it, soft drinks is what sprang to mind but the list goes on and we have all used these dispensers at one time in our lives. Kids are introduced early by having the candy, gum ball and toy units at head height and being very bright and visible to them. They are usually situated outside of a shop and the first things the children see as they go toward the shop with their parents is the lure of sweets and a brand new play thing, it is then that the winging and whining starts. The machines that are the most popular are the ones with the toys from a specific show, kids love those ones and girls in particular are mad for the vending units that have all the tacky jewelry.

They are not all aimed at kids though and there are numerous items that appeal to us snacks, drinks, condoms, female hygiene products, fruit and cigarettes. The smoke and condom units are generally only found in pubs and clubs and the same goes for the pads and tampons, whilst the snack and beverage dispenser in Australia can be found just about anywhere. There is even a needle vending machine for all those drug users out there but can I just say one thing about the needles, I don’t care if you want to shove some drugs up your arm, that is your business but you make it mine when you don’t dispose of them properly, for goodness sakes there are places where you can get rid of them safely and I realize you might be so off your face that you don’t realize what you are doing but it is not hard to put the cap back on a needle.
Now onto the healthier way of life, fruit has become the next big fad in vending sales and this is because people are more aware of what it is they are putting in their bodies and wish to have a healthy alternative to the daily chocolate or crisp intake. I still think have unhealthy snacks in a hospital is the way to go though, as there is nothing better than to have a chocky hit when sitting at the emergency ward for hours on end, with crying kids and bloody limbs. Having a cool hit of soda in summer or a hot coffer or tea in winter, can be the thing that prevents you from going to the front counter and grabbing a nurse by the ears and demanding someone come see your kid now because they have been crying for three hours straight and you are on your last stretch of patience, I think they should offer cigs too, might be the difference between a nurse being a patient or a caregiver.
