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.

Comments:

Did that precede the other email that says 5000 employees will be laid off?

I prefer Diet Pepsi, too. If you're interested in the "Lime" version, however, go with the Diet Coke variety. The "bite" that goes with DC goes well with the lime flavor! Try it! Also, it strikes me that Diet Dr. Pepper is an extremely popular drink, yet it seems to be under-represented in vending machines. {grumble} Change is hard. Good luck! :)

You guys are still paying $.05 less per item than we do at the Burlington Campus. You can get coke OR pepsi, but its $.80 per can.
