The trouble with those robots...
Rubbish, they're already here. Robot waiters and waitresses are already amongst us; we've all seen them.
Expressionless face, slow movement, limited memory function. They're early models of course; still prone to forgetfulness and relatively clumsy but in a few years time who knows what technology may bring?
There may be smiling ones that interact with the customer just like the better human ones.
If a human waiter/waitress has a bad day the worst that can happen is sulky service but if robowaiter malfunctions who knows what?
You could end up with a wine bottle smashed over your head or the contents of the gravy boat in your lap.
Just because it's technically feasible doesn't mean it's a good idea.
