Proof of why robots shouldn’t be allowed to take over the planet.
…wait, they might already be… retail drones… they’re actually robots, aren’t they? REVELATION!
Nope, the customers just think we are.
I see they have still failed to find a cure for baldness in the future.
Maybe baldness is just fashionable in the future.
I’m really hoping capes DO make a come back in a big way!
I was putting away another 12 curtains that customers had torn out of their packages and strewn all over the floor one day. I had a customer come up to me and ask why I was doing that… because apparently, in her world, we have machines and robots that do it. No lies. >_>
Pfff… THIS would be what causes Robots to decide that human beings are scum and need to be eliminated.
Skynet wasn’t a military thing after all… it was just robots being forced to work Retail!
Warning: Don’t read above post while eating!
That would actually make sense, of course, if there were any human retail workers left at that point, they might side with the robots………
Both of your posts made my day. XD I completely agree….
I, for one, welcome our robot overlords if they’ll fix the problems inherent in retail.
Surely, amongst plenty more things, the strip demonstrates they don’t improve things.
Clever strip.. but it’s approaching that in real life, tech-wise..though not quite robots.. The store i work at just installed a new time clock system..No more cards, it scans our fingerprints.. and now to cut down on hours as much as possible, a new computer system will be making out the schedules.
Cause everyone knows the bet way to make up the money lost by shoplifters is to squeeze it from the employees…
Oooh! My wife worked at a place that had finger-print readers on the clocking in machine. If you were a minute late, it docked 15 minutes off your pay automatically. 5 minutes docked half an hour. Et cetera. Only the manager could over-ride the decisions. Terrifying ain’t the word.
I can’t imagine that being legal. Even if you were a minute late, you still worked those other 14 minutes, and they have to pay hourly employees for time worked. I smell a class action lawsuit brewing.
Were he still alive, Isaac Asimov would likely have this comic hanging up somewhere in his work area.
