The natives are grumbling

I guess the Sun/SeeBeyond honeymoon is over. Today we all got this email (slightly edited to protect the guilty):
"Starting June 1 the vending machines in the building will have the item prices adjusted to be consistent with other Sun facilities. The number of vending machines will also be changed to 6 beverage and 4 snack available in the building in the break rooms. The new item prices will be: Gum/mints .50 --Reg candy .65 --Bag candy 1.25 --Large chips .70 --Bag cookies .75 --Fresh pastry 1.25 --Can beverage .65 --20-oz bottle 1.00."
Since under the SeeBeyond regime all items were .25, and there were more machines to choose from, this is a major bummer. I haven't heard this many complaints since April 15.
I just hope the new soda vendor will be Pepsi, not Coke. Diet Coke is insipid.
