I Want to see the manager
So.... If the sushi comes deep fried, or the rice is rock hard, who do I complain to...?
Can I ask for the manager, and if I do, will a killer droid with machine guns for arms come to "take care" of my complaints...
If you thought the service at your local Starbucks was robotic and impersonal, you might want to give Softbank’s newest Tokyo cafe a miss. Working alongside the company’s meatbag workers are a small army of Softbank Robotics’ droids, who’ll help serve and entertain the punters, and will even clean up after them. The new cafe, …
We may be seeing more robots in our eateries - at least the fast food ones. Unemployment is so low in this area (Nashville) that the eateries are unable to fill open positions. The shortage of staff and the accompanying rise in wages may drive automation in at least some of the positions. You only have so much latitude to increase prices - especially in the fast food segment.
I go to McDonald's solely because they have a *working* self-order screen. (as opposed to the useless broken shit at places like Wendy's)
Finally I can order without explaining it 4 times to someone that doesn't speak English as a first language and still getting it wrong 50% of the time. (Not that there's anything wrong with that, but a language barrier when I've got to get something to eat is not welcome... the language barrier is partly my fault as well, due to my rough Southern accent)
I certainly don't go there for the food, but they've got my business because of the technology.
"I go to McDonald's solely because they have a *working* self-order screen"
It's always interesting how different people are. I'm not big on McDonald's to begin with, but those self-order screens drive me batty, and I stopped going to McDonald's entirely because of them!
But then, there are no language problems in the McDonald's in my part of the country.
No, it was worse than that.
I wonder who the downvoter was? Downvoting a factual post seems pointless - you may disagree but my experience was what it was.
The next day we ate a much better meal at a roadside stand called Werner's Schnellimbiss. The Wurst it had to offer was much better than McDonalds.
I'll go to the counter or the screen depending which queue is shorter. Main advantage of the screen is tha if you know what you want, you can get it through nice and quick.
Biggest issue for me is that people are SLOW on the screens. Like look through the menu twice kind of thing.
Admittedly BK can usually just ask "how many cheeseburgers today?" for 99% of my orders :)

I may have posted this before but it may be relevant.
When McD arrived in the UK there was much press coverage. At the time we had Wimpy bars where you had stainless steel cutlery and seats that were horizontal. Normally if you open a restaurant you serve big portions at a cheap price for at least a month. I went to McD, it was shit. I have no idea why anyone would eat there. Later on the only times that I eat at McDs was if it was the only outlet open in the town that I had arrived in late at night. Still shit!
Can we have the DOUBLE FAIL icon please?
