I know it seems horribly anthropocentric, but I'm gonna state the obvious: Human beings are significant to human beings.
ha so true
Interesting idea. But a lot consumers are too technologically challenged and swear on their firstborn that having a "real live human" is inherently better in all quadrants of the service sector for some bizarre reason or another.
Evidence of this can be seen in self-checkout aisles and automated TAS operations. There's always that one utterly clueless person who screws up and creates the technological equivalent of a blackhole because she doesn't know how to call for assistance or "say 'yes' after the tone". This episode is, of course, succeeded by a rant about how much better it is to interact with a real live human, cos then she'd have someone else to blame for her ineptitude.
It would likely cost more than it would save, considering the number of man-hours that'll be poured into teaching technophobes how to order bread-sticks without touching the menu icon four-hundred eleventy times because "the stupid thing wasn't responding".
Absurd. Truth is, by definition, objective.
So, you're trying to say that God doesn't exist!?

Unless I'm just saying it for the instrumental value of punctuating a fleeting romantic moment, the lack of at least some reciprocating gesture would ruin any desire to say it again.
I believe that "bitching about it on the Internet" IS doing something about it.
Before Boyle? afore then were paintings, ifimnotmitsaken. The portrait painter was something of a 'shopper. Possibly, for business purposes, professionals drew from this principle: DON'T COPY THE BLEMISHES OF THE CUSTOMER.
The greatest threat to the survival of mankind is mankind. But, then again, this is coming from someone (me) who doesn't fully subscribe to secular humanistic ideals about humanity...
