How to Tell if Your Food Server is a Robot

1 Jan 2015 /

I’ve been reading some articles recently about increased use of robots in the food service industry. I think we had a robot server the other day at the Jack in the Box drive-thru. My boy ordered a medium Mountain Dew with his meal and I ordered a large Coke Zero with mine.

“Which one is the Mountain Dew” I asked the woman (robot) at the window as she handed us the drinks.

“The medium one,” she said.

Only a robot would answer the question that way. A human would say “The yellow one.” Because it’s a dopey question and a human recognizes why it’s a dopey question and answers accordingly. The robot only knows that the medium drink is the Mountain Dew and the large drink is the Coke Zero.

“Jack in the Box tacos have to be eaten when they’re hot, so when I buy them at the drive-thru, I also buy a bag of french fries, set the fries on top of the tacos and use them as a taco warmer to keep the tacos hot until I get them home and eat them.”

“Do you eat the fries as well?”

“No, I don’t eat the fries. I just use them to keep the tacos warm.”

“The french fries keep the tacos warm?’

“Right.”

“What keeps the french fries warm?”

Tacos

Hangintherejack.com has coupons for two free tacos, valid ONLY today — Tuesday, February 24, 2009 — from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.

I know this because my son printed out a sheaf of them last night and asked me to take him to Jack in the Box at midnight for a bedtime taco snack.

When that idea sputtered, he laid out his plan for today as follows:

  1. Drive through Jack in the Box on the way to school and get two free tacos for breakfast.
  2. Drive through Jack in the Box on the way home from school. His mom will get two free tacos in the drive-through lane while he gets out of the car, goes inside and orders two more free tacos.
  3. For dinner, repeat Step 2.
