Colo Vending Machine

I know I'm being a freaking idealist.

My tool bag carries all my required sets of screws and cage nuts.  Works
great until the first level guy decides to borrow something and not put
it back.

they do? nonono, you have to buy those seperately :P

racks don't even come with "doors" and "side walls" etc by default

you have to buy them seperately anyway if you want to make sure your 
company uses all the same ones, so you don't have to take them out again

and replace them because some fukkin idiot put the wrong size into the 
hole as it "came with something else"
