Some people loved the idea of a robot because they believed they would have a better dining experience than if they were greeted and looked after by a human waiter.
One person wrote: “Never call, don’t talk back, always on time, no interpersonal relationship drama, never complain … I’m sold.”
“Introverts will eat more because they know they can avoid small talk,” said another person.
A third person wrote: “Never stop working. Works every vacation. “
While others were particularly keen not to tip the robot unlike a human waiter.
Someone replied, “Cool, I just saved $ 12 without leaving a tip.”
“If that means I never have to tip again …
However, there have been some who totally opposed the idea of being served by a robot waiter, finding that these robots will cause human waiters to lose their jobs at some point.
With the hospitality and hospitality industries campaigning for a minimum wage of $ 15 an hour over the years, their jobs could be at risk in the future if using robotic waiters is the cheaper option.
One person said, “I would go. Nope. Human or I will not do business with you. ”
“Boycott Denys,” wrote another person.
Another added, “Unfortunately, this will replace a lot of jobs over the next decade. Learn to be a craftsman. “
