An Iowa man lost his job when he tried to get a Twix candy bar out of a vending machine at work.

He was working his warehouse job (Polaris Industries) when he put a buck in the machine for a Twix.  The candy bar didn't come out, so he put another dollar in. Still no luck. He banged and shook the machine and still couldn't get them out.


He drove an 8,000 lb forklift over, raised the machine two feet up, and dropped it on the concrete floor six times.

He eventually got three Twix bars.

And five days later he lost his job.

The company turned down his unemployment over what the judge called a "purposeful disregard for the employer's interests."

Since he was fired the warehouse has put "all new vending machines" in.
