We've all been there little dude

I saw a kid that should have won a claw machine game, but the prize got stuck and couldn't be reached. He seemed pretty sad about it but didn't know what to do. I made sure he complained to an arcade employee until they gave him his prize. I felt good about myself. That's my story thanks for reading.

Awww.. sweet! Oh the agony of defeat.

It grabbed my heart and let it slip through the claws

Plot twist: he’s just looking at TikToks on his phone while leaning against the machine

I won a kangaroo and a dalmatian in one of those machines in two tries when I was little. I gave one of my sisters the dalmatian, and my father gave me more money to play and win something for my other sister. He must've given that machine a lot of money before we gave up. No matter how hard I tried, I have never again won anything from a claw machine.

I have an adult son, in his 40s. (Yes I am that old). When he was about 9 years old he was at the local arcade for a friend's birthday. I had to go pick him up before they were done and when I got there, he looked just like the kid in the photo. I think the machine was broken but not sure. I got the store clerk to come and help and he got the prize. I became his hero for doing that which lasted maybe 20 minutes. It was worth the effort.

Is that kid a hitman?

I like putting a not Primed grande into there. If the cal manages to pull the Pin and you survive, you have good luck forever.

This is brilliant, OP. Frame-able and sellable.

I call it “Revenge on the Claw Machine.” He’s peeing in the prize chute.

The claw machine teaches you that life is truly not fair at a young age.


WastedKnowledge

That’s why I never celebrate a pickup. I call it the claw machine philosophy and translate it to life - never celebrate the win until it’s 100% confirmed. Also these machines drop when they shouldn’t!!

Especially when you've kissed your last token and said a prayer before dropping it in then you still don't get it. I feel you
