"Many people need work so we don't have to accept a robot," remarks @gabrielle_5305. "Not a good end to it all."

User @valentin.sdr jokes, "I'm sorry, there is oil in my coffee."
"Took a job?" wonders @greatlyfe. "Meanwhile, building and maintaining them will provide multiple jobs."
"I just love her look from her polka dot pink shirt to her giant pearl necklace," admires @stacywelch227. "I wear a similar pearl necklace. I hardly ever wear anything else."
