    My Dr Who is obviously rusty, I used wrong word. Thanks, for the correct correction! ;)

    You can get a $ 3 bottle of wine at Trader Joes, which you could drink if you wanted to.

    I buy the $ 3 bottle of white wine (chardonnay usually) for pan sautee recipes; other cooking. And for guests too drunk to know what they're drinking.

    The best robots in Big Box stores are the ones that catch crummy employees doing disgusting things in the stores. Worse than the customers, in what experience I have.

    That's for me the #1 reason to raise the minimum wage. Let's create a sense that the job is something to take pride in. Attract a better class of employee and sometimes transform a malignant employee into one with an improved self image and set of behaviors.

    If the worst of the worst employees lose their jobs in this manner, do we really grieve for them?

    Off-putting??? Just going into Wal-Mart is a little or a lot of that. That robot looks pretty good compared to a whole lot of what I've seen in Wal-Mart's aisles.

    Suggestion: put a mullet on the robot.

    That's scary but for context, our HQ office is a block from an Apple Store and 5-6 blocks from a major university.

    Walmart is sure ahead of the times with its robot scanners. They are definitely on top of their game with their pharmacy and excellent customer service.:)

    As long as the robots don't attempt an anal probe on my person, I have no problem ... They can have my job if they want it ...

    The stop and shop near me has one. It cleans up spills and cleans the floor. It’s pretty amazing. I love watching the old people look at it all confused and terrified.

    That wasn't a correction, that was a Dalek screaming what it screams. That's how it was intended, anyway. Danged internet...
