Re: The last straw...
Yes, and it's to never trust robots. Ever. Because they'll take you for everything you've got.

The last straw...
Looks like the robot isn't happy with having taken the dude's assembly line job. He has reached out the window to grab his begging hat.

There's a metaphor and/or lesson in here somewhere.

Re: "Will the robots stop at nothing?!"
I guess we'll never know, now. Sigh.

(Just kidding again, Nicole)

Re: Give and Take
Haha, Walt. When I first looked at this I thought the arm was being charitable, but when I looked at it again this morning I realized it's the opposite. Will the robots stop at nothing?!

Give and Take
I'd like to think the robot is helping a guy out dropping change in the hat.  But I have a feeling he's taking what little this poor sap has left.

It hurts
Adding insult to injury, the robot was built in India...with U.S. technology that was hacked by China...with parts that were manufactured in Mexico.  Hey, it's a global economy.
