    Well now that they dumb down the person taking the order at McDonald's Drive-Through, I wonder what they are going to do with the people that screw up making the order. Have Robot's make it. :rolleyes: :isay:

    They probably will have robots make it. It is very likely that sooner than later there will be no people working at these places. Maybe one person will deliver the uncooked food until they figure out how to automate that as well. I don't know who will buy it when there are no more jobs though... :eek:
