What Vending Machines Say About Us As People …

So I went to a pub recently and needed the loo.

While there, I couldn’t help but notice the array of products available in the vending machine.



Headache pills.


Have vending machines in pub toilets always offered this range of goods?

And more importantly, do the owners of vending machines placed in pub toilets think all British men are ‘sex pests’?

Harsh but possible.

Just jealous because the only thing you would ever need are the tic tacs.

What a well thought out, mature response Billy.

It’s like he’s turned into Anderson Cooper.

i thought you had to buy your condoms from a specialist fucking supplier to get that level of small.

Andy FTW. FTW of insults.

That does seem to be a lot of personal grooming products all in one vending machine. I would love to see how sales break down.

Comment by Pete

Ha. That would be interesting.

Though I bet it’s achieves most of its sales from men who are hoping for an extended evening rather than actually having one.

Maybe they should rename it as that.

The ‘hope’ machine. Hahahaha.

Comment by Rob

No hope machine.

Perhaps coincidentally, there is an advert beneath the photo for a “backend developer.” Is that British/Laddish code for some sort of “toilet trader” behaviour?

Rentboy rebranding?

Comment by Bazza

Women sometimes get sanitary pads and tampons in the ladies. If my memory doesn’t fail me, I think I’ve seen condoms in there too.

What about a selection of headache pills, deodorant and mints?

Comment by Rob

Is that the effect you have on women?

Comment by John

Nah, women usually smell great, and headaches are convenient when an unattractive person comes on too strongly.

I wish they dispensed rainbows, hair scrunchies, mints, and makeup samples. Because that’s exactly what you’ll need when/after throwing up cocktails.

Comment by TSNG

Do you always take photos in public toilets?

Comment by John

It’s been known.

Comment by Rob
