(Boss Bot) Have you seen the latest sales report? This isn’t good. Load up the old spreadsheet program and fix these numbers. Wow, you cook those books like a professional *monotone voice* gourmet chef. (Random Bot) Hey, that almost hurt! (Job Bot) It’s time for lunch. At mid-day, humans would interact with primitive robots known as *monotone voice* vending machines *normal voice* to obtain food. Looks *monotone voice* delicious. *normal voice* Enjoy your meal, human. (Coworker Bot) Hey coworker, can you get me a *monotone voice* candy bar? (Job Bot) Looks like it’s stuck.

We wanted to give him a parting gift. Everyone’s pitching in. Why don’t you give me something you’d like to contribute? That’s how you want them to remember their old job? Anyway, do you think you can type up a quick card to go with this? It would make it a lot more *monotone voice* personal. *typing noises* That looks good. Hand it to me. I’ll handle the rest. Thanks for helping out! (Random Bot) Hey, what the-!? (Boss Bot) Uhh, things aren’t going too well. We need to find a couple bots we can let go. Take a look at these employee evaluations. (Fancy Bot) First, my stapler jams. And now, this? (Job Bot) In the office, coworkers would converse around the liquid dispenser.
