Hi, My Name Is SkyNet; How Can I Help You Today?

, , , | Right | October 14, 2019

Me: “Good afternoon. This is [My Name]; how may help you?”

Caller: “Are you a robot?”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Caller: “Are you a robot or a human?”

Me: “I’m a human, sir.”

Caller: “Are you sure? Because I’ve been talking to robots all day and I want to speak to a human.”

(I start laughing.)

Me: “I assure you, sir, I’m a human. How may I help you?”

Caller: “Yeah, you must be human. You laughed; robots don’t laugh.”

Me: “Unless I’m an AI.”

Caller: “Nah, that would be creepy.”

(The rest of the call went on normally and he thanked me for helping him at the end and for not being a robot.)
