The knee-high robot rolled up. It stopped beside me and said, “Hi, I noticed you’ve been standing in front of the laundry detergent for quite a while. Is there anything I can help you with?”
“I found what I need. I’m just standing still for a minute. I don’t need anything.”
“Okay. If you change your mind, I’m always here to help. Have a nice day.” The robot rotated and rolled away. It made little musical sounds as it moved so people would see it coming and not trip over it.
Now I felt silly standing still. Shamed by a machine, I moved toward the automop section.
