DELRAY BEACH (CBSMiami) – Oh rats, look we found in the vending machine.

Some students at a Delray Beach high school said they lost their appetite after finding a rat crawling among the snacks in a vending machine.

A video circulating on social media shows a rat inside a vending machine at Atlantic Community High School.

Latoya Johnson said her daughter shot the footage which shows the rat climbing around inside a vending machine and coming in contact with packaged food.

The Palm Beach County School District confirms the incident happened on Tuesday.

A district spokesperson says the principal was immediately made aware and the vending machine was locked so students couldn’t use it.

The vending machine company was called right away. They sent out an exterminator who arrived later that day.

Absolutely.  It's like here in the UK there was a recent newspaper article - prominent in most newspapers - about fecal matter found on the McDonald touchscreen ordering kiosks.

 

Sure, that's utterly disgusting, but I know for a fact that McD sanitize them, it's hardly their fault - it's customers who are filthy and don't wash their hands.  Or maybe even just touched another surface.  I mean, what did people expect on ANY surface in public?  You'll probably find traces of semen on most escalator handrails - so what, it's a non-story.

The vendor's attempt to sell kitty treats in the machine didn't work out very well ...

I know rats and mice can get into almost anything and this story is pretty sickening, but when I was stationed down south in the Army back in the 70's, the thing I always hated most was the ###### roaches! Now, there's something that is any where and every where, down there! Between the hurricanes and ###### roaches, I would NEVER want to live in the south, even if means getting away from this stupid Michigan winter weather!
