Man Loses Job Over Twix Stuck in Vending Machine Published: February 20, 2014

A 27-year-old Spirit Lake, Iowa man has lost his job and unemployment benefits for using a forklift on a malfunctioning vending machine, according to

The site reports Robert McKevitt had deposited $1 in a vending machine last fall, but the 90-cent Twix candy bar he wanted wouldn't fall.

State unemployment records say his banging and rocking the machine didn't work, so McKevitt commandeered a forklift, picked up the machine at least six times and dropped it on the floor at the Polaris Industries' warehouse in Milford where he worked. Three candy bars fell.
