The lack of labor day

About the only labor you'll find going on these days.

Will all available cashiers please go to the check outs.

Sorry we only have one left after the downsizing and she's crabby. Only kept her because she's a relative of the manager.
Where's the manager?
On a fishing trip with the owner. Be back in a couple of weeks.
Who's running the store?
We are. But I have some bad news. Due to a bad quarter profits report you'll have to leave.
Ha ha! The jokes on you, haven't you heard? A chinese outfit bought the place and we're all being replaced with vending machines.
Who's going to stock and service the machines?
Immigrant mexican workers of course.

Man, look at that pile of dirty dishes.

See, I just created a job. Now where's my private jet?

Demeur said...

Oh but Randal you didn't outsource it and turn it into a hedge fund so no shekels for you.

I don't give a fuck, I had a great weekend and helped the economy along at the same time.

I guess there's only one thing left to do. Let's go eat, So, what's your pleasure, Chinese, Mexican, Thai, Indian . . . ?

We don't need no steenkeeng Mexican immigrant workers. We'll soon have robots that can stock and service the vending machines. Oh, but then who will maintain and repair the robots?
