Food Servers to be replaced by Robots?

Well here it is.  The Flying Robots are coming!  In 2015

SINGAPORE: Restaurant goers in Singapore can expect to be served by autonomous flying robots the world’s first commercial attempt by the end of next year.

I can’t help but wonder about this advancement in drone technology.  I can’t help but see this as another way to take away jobs.  We can’t replace every job on the planet, but we sure are going to try.  I personally don’t want to have a flying waiter.  I want a real person that I can talk to and interact with.

Have you ever been in a fast food establishment that has you punch in your order on a computer screen so that the people behind the counter can start making it?  Then they hand you a cup so you can go get your own drink.  Perhaps you have been to the supermarket where you can scan your own cart of food, and then pay the machine?

At first glance, these things may seem kind of cool, but in reality they are a huge problem.  When are we going to have the balls to stand up to these companies and tell them “I DON’T WORK HERE”.  Yet we don’t do that, we just continue to allow jobs to be taken over by technology and slow down the economy.

Remember when there used to be someone who answered the phone at any particular business you called?   Where did those people go?  Not only did it contribute to unemployment, it made the customer service experience absolutely horrible.

Every single piece of technology that is invented that can replace a human worker, is a gold mine.  It costs far less for a machine to do the work.  They don’t complain about wages, they never call in sick, and they certainly don’t stage a protest while millions of people sit unemployed with no income.  I say fire those people and get another batch in.  I would kill to have a job at Walmart right now.
