I am so glad I do not work. That must be horrible asking your robot companions to go out for a drink after a long day at work.

I have a friend who works in an Amazon warehouse and I cannot imagine how stressful it must be. Of course after reading many reviews on job sites about Amazon warehouses and after watching numerous videos from former Amazon warehouse employees I am so glad I do not have to work in one myself.

Somebody's got to program these robots and make sure they do the work right.

@Steve Conrad - +1 - similar thoughts having read various sources, Amazon warehouses are despicable. They should be fully automated and not have people compete with Robots and especially not have people's performance judged against that of a robot.
