A Marquette University student lost patience and $3-worth of candy Friday with a vending machine in Cobeen Hall.
Lynn Bias said that she spent two hours trying to think of creative tactics to get her candy unjammed and out of the machine. Her final product resulted as three sheets of paper; taped, folded and stuck up the automated door.
Security cameras recorded Bias shaking the machine and repeatedly saying, “I just want my Sour Patch Kids.”
But she never retrieved her candy. No one could get anything out of the machine without a key for the door.
The student could not be reached for further comments.
