Tulsa QuikTrip gets new robot employee

September 22, 2023 by No Comments

The QuikTrip on 41st & Garnett has now got a new employee. You may assume this means they’ve got a spotty-faced teenager doing night shifts before they go off to college. However, this assumption would be wrong. In fact, the new employee isn’t even human. Instead, it is a robot cleaner.

This picture was taken on Reddit which showed the robot QT worker hard at work. Here, it was seen mopping the floors while moving around. Interestingly, it even featured large blue eyes, as if it were from some kind of science fiction movie.


This prompted comments from Tulsans, with one writing: “Good on em. Those QT employees have almost zero time to mop or do other things besides register whenever it’s hella busy, which is pretty much all the time.” In other words, it looks like this new addition to the workforce is already seen as a good addition.

On a serious note, this also highlights a move away from human labor when it comes to certain, manual jobs. Whether this is a good or a bad thing in the long run remains to be seen. Nonetheless, with all humor aside we can expect to see more sights like this in the future. For instance, it is no secret that Lowe’s already employs robotic security guards. With this in mind, the addition of a robot cleaner isn’t too surprising.
