A Guy Was Fired For Using a Forklift to Get a Twix Bar Out of a Vending Machine


If you've ever had a candy bar get stuck in a vending machine . . . this guy is your hero.
 
A warehouse worker in Milford, Iowa named Robert McKevitt started getting hungry during a recent shift.  So he went to buy a Twix bar in one of the warehouse vending machines . . . but it got stuck.
 
So first he started banging on the side and rocking it back and forth, but it didn't budge.  Then he bit the bullet and put another dollar in . . . but it STILL didn't drop.
 
Which is when Robert remembered he was in a warehouse . . . jumped behind the wheel of an 8,000-pound FORKLIFT . . . and started picking up the vending machine and DROPPING it over and over again.
 
According to the company, he dropped the machine from two feet up at least six times.  The good news for Robert is, his Twix bar DID finally get jarred loose, along with two MORE candy bars.  The bad news is, the company FIRED him five days later.
 
And after he got fired, he filed for unemployment.  But a judge REJECTED that request, saying Robert showed a willful disregard for his employer's property, and that he DESERVED to be fired.  (USA Today)
