    What happen to people being honest and actually working? If they would start cutting the hands or fingers off the thieves an make examples of these stupid worthless people it would stop going on.

    I understand from my less than reliable sources that this Vendito disquises himself as a vending machine (possibly an off brand cola such as Bubba cola). When folks deposit their money it goes into his left front pocket. The refund switch does not work and the depositer leaves frustrated and thirsty.
