Robot butlers

I am pretty sure that people in the middle of last century assumed that we would all have robot butlers by now, obeying our orders, doing things for us, and leaving us with a life of leasure.

It is odd how things turn out.

Today the coffee machine demanded that I "Refill water tank". Having obeyed its orders, it demanded that I "Empty drip tray", so I did as I was told.

Machines tell us what to do all the time, and we just do it.

Makes you wonder who is the robot butler and who is in charge?
