    Apparently they now have these robots roaming the store. They help determine which items are out of stock, misplaced, mislabeled, etc.

    It's a little off-putting to turn the corner and see a big, white tower-thing with no label other than "bossanova."

    I don’t go to that place anymore. If the robots want me they’ll have to come and get me.

    Except it is only 'eliminating' earthling's jobs, and not lives [as fast].

    Oops, did I type that out loud?

    It is an inventory scanner, it scans the barcodes and counts the inventory. They are automated and navigate through the store without being monitored.
