This was hilarious I thought today as I was in a supermarket here called T&T where like most other places they have mini booths where you can sample products as well as one’s designated in selling a specific item. I was walking past this one that sold roasted chestnuts. As usual you hear like a person yelling out to try samples and all. However, the employee was just kind of standing there looking bored and not moving her mouth which immediately made me think that there was something wrong.
Upon closer inspection, on the far back of all the packages there was like a voice recorder that was literally playing a looped pre-recorded voice of a person asking people to come try the product. I know technology has its usage, but in a situation like this it just looks plain weird. Maybe with all this tech people are forgetting how to actually approach and talk to people in-person huh? I can’t see it as saving the business money either as there is still a person that has to attend the display. Interesting Easter Sunday bit.
