How can
we help, Human?
I don't have time to teach you how to do my job.
You don't need to teach us. We can learn! Downloading job parameters.
Parameters downloaded. Oh.
This will be easy.
Sending you a copy of a more efficient patrol path.
Hey! Stop learning how to do my job better than I can!

You guys need to stay on
the ship.
Most cargo is
rfid tagged. If you scan in this pattern…
Stop telling me how to do my job!
Human is angry!
We're bad robots!
We've upset the human!
Back to the ship!
Waah! I want to go home!
thank you?
Ah, geeze.

So I upset some robots. So what? They're machines. It's not like they have real feelings.

I'm sorry I yelled at you guys. What you don't understand is there is more to this job than what is written down.
Show us! Show us!
I'll show ONE of you.
Which one?
Rock, paper, scissors, lizard, Spock!
Not how I would have done it, but I'm not going to argue with a screening process that produces results in three seconds.

Guys! We've been given
a place to set up. Let's get these charging stations and dream machines ready to move.
We've only been
here a couple hours
and already we have
to work?
[!1.9] Hooray!

We'll be setting up in the unit one compressor room. Unit one is not running. The lines there are sufficient
to power all the recharge stations.
How do you know that?
Mr. De Morel told me where to set up.
He's one of those guys I think
would have done really well if he
hadn't gone into management.

Helix, you're in charge. Station people will do the actual hook up of the machines in the compressor room. We don't have permission for the robots to work yet.
I didn't think
the station people wanted more robots here.
Power and dream machines
are basic life support for robots. They may not want more robots here, but
they're not monsters.
Also, it's after normal working hours. People are more reasonable when they're being paid time and half than they are on straight time.

Sleep cycle ended. Warning! Network
not found. Warning! Location beacon
not found. Warning! Inertial position
is outside of the factory. Panic!
No. No panic. I am waking up in
a new location. That was scary.
I have no idea what legacy code I'm running, but hugging this is actually
very calming.

You're up! Great! We have a three way meeting with the union and the station manager.
You'll have to leave this here. First impressions. Mature humans do not hug stuffed animals during meetings for comfort.
They hug briefcases, tablets
and stacks of paper.

My coworkers are gone.
They're setting up dream machines and recharge stations. I know robots start to over write memories after twenty four hours.
Until we are allowed to work, that should not be
a problem.
No. This is the first time you're meeting humans. Every robot will want to keep those memories.
Oh! I did not even think of that. Thank you.
I also didn't want you losing your memories of who brought you over here. There's no point in becoming a legend if no one remembers your deeds.
