So today in the grocery store I found my path obstructed by this large grey phallic object with googly eyes. A fucking robot getting in the way, and it was looking at me and shit. The sign said something about it being there to look for spills and shoplifters, I didn't want to be anywhere near the thing so I didn't stick around to read it. That creeps me out, it was very conspicuous, we are used to being watched all the time on surveillance cameras but this was obtrusive and right in your face, not a camera high on the wall or ceiling. The self check is another robot that has replace people but that is optional and not actively targeting humans. A while back I heard about a similar security bot being employed out west to try to monitor the homeless but the homeless kept attacking it and throwing feces on it, I can't say that I don't understand their impulse anymore, I wanted to run my cart right into that monstrosity. Looks like the time is now to pick up a phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range.
So what the hell are we supposed to do about the rise of the machines? Has anyone else encountered this things?
