Man Stuck in Coffee Machine Delays Train

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A railway worker became stuck in a coffee machine on board a train this morning, delaying its departure from a station.


It happened on the 05:51 Virgin Trains service from Holyhead to London Euston, keeping the train at Rugby - due to depart at 08:47 - for more than 20 minutes.

The worker, a member of railway maintenance staff, sustained minor injuries - cuts to the hand, according to Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service which attended the scene."


For a railway worker to get his hand caught inside a coffee machine on board a train is more embarrassing than for a child to get caught red-handed with his hand inside the cookie jar, or for a priest to get caught with his hand patting the rear end of an attractive parishioner.

I love me some coffee, but if a vending machine malfunctions and doesn`t dispense a cup of the delicious brew, I`m not going to risk injury or humiliation by sticking my hand inside the machine.

First responders used hydraulic cutting equipment to free the wanker. Don`t be a wanker if a vending machine malfunctions, just utter a curse and walk away.
