am writing to lodge a complaint concerning the vending machines
in the John Morgan Building and the Biomedical Research Building.
I have occasionally had the experience of trying to purchase
a soda and losing my money in the machines. The money return
button does not work and the machines often do not give change.
From the comments of others, my experiences are very common.
the past, vending machine used to have an on-campus number
posted for complaints and refunds. This is no longer the
case. I would appreciate it if you would ask an appropriate
campus official [to] address this issue in Almanac.
