Burgers! Everyone loves them. No one loves making them. It’s hot. It’s cramped. It’s loud. It’s greasy.
Problem solved! It’s been outsourced to the robots. A new San Francisco burger joint can now boast zero human employees! Soon this will be the new normal for restaurants. This is the best news we’ve had since we found out that most of the meat being served to you is coming not from cows, but from 3d printers. Now you’ve got nothing to feel bad about. No cows. No feedlots. No slaughterhouses. No minimum-wage employees. And, best of all, no more spit on your burgers!
Sure, there are people out there that are worried about the fact that we’re losing all of our jobs to robots who will then turn on us and use us as batteries.
And THAT WILL SUCK!
But until then we don’t have to flip any more burgers, make any more shakes, or worry about burning our hands taking the fries out of the oil. THANK GOODNESS FOR THAT!
Picking fruit is also going to the robots. Nobody will miss doing that. And I’ve heard that robots are pretty good at posting things on social media sites and GETTING LIKES! We just cant compete out there on the open market. How are we ever going to get the likes we need?
Yes, being human batteries will be bad. Not getting likes is worse. But worse than the alternative…?
Sure, being without work might be bad, but it will free up so much more time for streaming television series’. And ‘doing facebook.’
We’ll miss driving trucks, though. That will be sad. It’s one of the more desirable professions. And soon it will go the way of the passenger pigeon. Think about it. It will be the robots, not us, that are enjoying the open road; sunsets over the rolling grasslands, yukking it up on the cb.
Netflix has it’s work cut out for it if it’s going to replace that!
Robots stealing good jobs too
Robots are also becoming pretty good artists. Which means I’ll soon be out of a job as well, and joining the new generation of Netflix watchers.
