Admit it, you've put money into a vending machine, seen a candy bar make its way almost to the front of a row, and then get stuck. You probably did what the rest of us do and gave the machine a nudge, hoping to dislodge the reluctant treat so you could get what you paid for.

So, you probably have some sympathy for 27-year-old Robert McKevitt of Spirit Lake, Iowa. He got fired for trying to wrest a candy bar from a vending machine, according to the Des Moines Register. Then again, he did use an 8,000-pound forklift in the process.
