A credit card? Really?

So, when did they start putting credit cards on vending machines? If it was in 1983, please don't tell me because I like to think I stay up on current events. And really, if it's not in People magazine or on the internet, it must not be happening, right?

No, seriously though, a credit card to get a coke or bottle of water?!? I admit, I don't carry alot of cash, but I generally have the $1.25 if I'm in desperate need of a cold beverage. But, I'm sure they probably will get more sales this way. What cracked me up the most was it just wasn't debit cards, but American Express. Try explaining that one to your company when the credit card bill arrives - yeah, I was really thirsty and the 28 cents I found at the bottom of my purse just wouldn't cut it.

So, what other things have I missed?!?

Heh! You know though, I haven't used a vending machine in forever. Who knows how long they've been on there.

I haven't used a vending machine in a long time, I didn't know you could use a credit card. What will they come up with next?
