Tragedy of the Four Chips


Ruth Brown, reporter

On Thursday, January 17th, a student at lunch got a bag of Doritos from the vending machine. Most people know how most of the chip bags are full of mostly air. The bag was opened and it was pure air and only four chips. The student was furious. Within his group of friends, which I was in, he complained against the company questioning why we even have bags of chips.

Many people who buy bags of chips from the vending machine often become frustrated with the number of chips they receive and having more air than the food they wanted. This problem keeps increasing amongst students as they wish for more chips. Some students wish they could have different kinds of chips, like the canned Pringles, which fills their cans to the top, leaving almost no air. Other students wish there was no chips at all and have other snacks.
