One of these days I expect even fast food places to have an automated “have it our way” system.

The day has COME! I was in a Jack In The Box in San Antonio last week and they were testing an automated order kiosk in the lobby! You simply used the touch screen to order your food and then pay with cash or card!

Basically, instead of having a cashier take your order, put it in the system and send the order to the back, you do it all yourself! It is RIDICULOUS!

Pretty soon there will only be one person working in every business. I do remember the automans (I believe they were called) which we used to have at work in the olden days. Shelves rotated around and you could select from cold sandwiches and other stuff. It was all dated when they filled the machine and we used to have a gambling pot where you could bet on the oldest date of someone’s purchase throughout the day. Some of that stuff had been in there for quite a while.
