No no no no no no no no no no no no no *takes breath* no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no.

Japan, I love you, but you’ve got to stop this. For a while you were into the whole robots-that-do-things-better-than-even-the-best-humans-do-things thing, which, OK, was kind of cool for a minute.

But this … I mean, think of the children me, who is terrified by your new humanoid robot that works as a receptionist at a large retail store. This is not cool, Japan. This is not cool.

I don’t even know what to say anymore. Clearly, my attempts to warn you all about the robots continue unheeded. Even though they continue to take more and more of our jobs, you guys think this shit is all fun and games. Oh, a robot receptionist, how futuristic, how wonderful.

No. NO! That’s a bad human! Bad human!

And it’s not just Japan — although to be fair, Japan, you seriously need to slow your roll with this robot thing. It’s all of you. You really aren’t going to be satisfied until robots become our overlords, and we are all working as receptionists at the robot department store.

When that time comes, I hope they treat us as nicely as we’ve treated them.
