    The Facts Of Second Life

    | Southern California, USA | Bizarre

    (A customer in her 40s approaches me to ask where something is. As I am answering her question, she notices my name tag.)

    Customer: “Oh! I didn’t realize they had to give you names! How nice of them to try and give you more of an identity!”

    Me: “Excuse me?”

    Customer: “You know, since you’re a robot and all.”

    Me: “Ma’am, I can assure you that I’m a person. In fact…” *I point to my pregnant belly* “…I’m a person growing ANOTHER person.”

    Customer: “No, no, can’t be. That documentary with Bruce Willis said workers were being replaced with robots.”

    Me: “…You mean Surrogates?”

    Customer: “That’s the one!”

    Me: “Ma’am, that was a movie. Didn’t you watch the whole thing?”

    Customer: “Oh, no. Just a chunk in the middle I think. It was rather over-dramatic for a documentary, and I just couldn’t get into it. Got the gist of it though! Don’t worry, I don’t mind that you’re a robot. Technology today! WONDERFUL!” *walks away*

    Me: *speechless*
