A robot might be the only thing that saves your job

I picture a world where every apartment building has a robot arm on a little electric car. It picks up supplies ordered online at the door and brings them to each suite.

The robot does not use AI or some other dumb vaporware: A real human’s job is to drive the robot. Sometimes the robot switches drivers: Got a broken gizmo? Gizmo lady calls you online, uses the robot to sooth the gizmo back into crumulence. (It’s a perfectly crumulent word.) Want your hair did? Same robot, haircutter from home.

Safe, clean, remote. The robot didn’t steal your job – the robot saved it.
