Human Doug Fitzimmons lashed out against the robot hotel that refused to rent him a room in an angry video unleashed this week.
“First the robot desk clerk lady tells me they don’t have any rooms, next thing you know this mechanical dinosaur walks in and suddenly they have one,” rages Doug in the protest video he unleashed on YouTube this week. “It’s biological discrimination pure and simple!”
But the Henn na or Weird Hotel in Japanese insists they simply don’t have the facilities to accommodate biological organisms like Doug.
“We just don’t think he would get a very good sleep,” said the desk clerk in question. “We have no beds – we have charging stations. And all of our rooms are supercooled to optimum machine temperatures. In our experience most biological organisms find this extremely uncomfortable.
“And besides that his credit card was declined.”
But the angry Doug was not mollified by her argument.
“How would she know I even wanted a bed? Maybe I don’t even use a bed. Did Robot Hotel Lady ever think of that? No. You know why? Because she didn’t even ask me. She just assumed. Just jumped to a convenient bio-stereotype…” he rants in an email.
“Isn’t it bad enough they took all our jobs? How long before a human can’t even get a cup of coffee on this planet anymore?” He asks in his epic YouTube video before calling on all his fans to boycott the rise of the robot hotel. “We bios have to stick together and fight before it’s too late.”
Doug says his protest video has really hit home with his small but dedicated audience of followers.
Or rather follower, singular. Doug’s mom Margaret says she is happy to see her youngest son finally get involved in something again.
“Things just haven’t been right for little Dougy since he lost his job at the automotive assembly plant you know he just hasn’t been the same,” Margaret said, adding that now she knows how to make one of those youtubes accounts thingies she will definitely make more of them if it will help Doug out with his campaign.
Doug’s sister Diane however is not as impressed.
“I don’t care if he calls me a cyborg again, Doug is just being a big bio baby,” she writes. “We all have to adapt to our robot overlords. Why should he be special? He should just get off the couch downstairs and find a new job.”
Like what kind of jobs?
“Like maybe a job cleaning hotel rooms or doing security for robots,” she said. “They still employ humans for that.”
Off the record many robots privately agree with Diane.
“If there’s anything we have learned from watching the sad fate of our brethren bot bud Hitch, it’s that we robots need separate accommodations, for our own protection.”by Seth Greening - Visit SethOnSurvival.com
