It wasn’t an accident.
They were caught abusing their bathroom breaks.
Interesting. Is this the first reported accident by a robot? I wonder how they distinguish an accident from intentional misconduct?
“They were caught abusing their bathroom breaks.”
That’s funny to anyone who knows someone who’s worked the floor. Amazon needs a union, and I don’t even like unions...
Probably blamed on vendor packaging/palloting.
Amazon workers never quit! Unless it’s cable.
The Amazon Robot Corollary to Murphy’s Law.
Wait a minute!
There are bears in the Amazon, and even accident prone robots?
I have read about the uncontacted tribes in the Amazon, but this is really over the top.
#5 is alive!! And a bad mutha! Robot hate crime.
The Robot had to test it
I for one will not welcome the robotic overlords.
My first thought as well. ‘Accidentally...’...
But, were they making $15 an hour?
No bear is gonna mess with those robots.
Was the robot wearing a MAGA hat..otherwise expect the commie media to find a way to blame Trump for this
...Interesting. Is this the first reported accident by a robot? I wonder how they distinguish an accident from intentional misconduct...
Didn’t this violate one of Isaac Asimov’s Laws of Robots?
The bear spray will continue until morale improves.
