Others will see what Applebee's is doing and will follow suit.
Applebee's CEO said their intent was not to replace waiters though.
Time will tell.
That's fine until some lazy tablet who's looking for a quick buck posts a customer receipt on Facebook accusing them of discrimination by writing "byte me you RAM challenged piece of crap tablet". Believe me it will happen, computers are taking over.

Fast food companies around here employ many age groups. However, considering the vast majority of their operating hours occur during school hours many workers are adults. In addition, those under 18 can only work certain hours and can only operate some restaurant equipment. Most of the employees in fast food are adults - many of them single moms, elderly and disabled workers.

I know because I am not a ****ing idiot.

Elderly and disabled, bravo. I'm guessing the single mothers didn't get good grades(or dropped out) from their free education.

Maybe the problem is with your communication skills, not those of the workers you come in contact with.

So living and working in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States means I should become fluent in Spanish to better communicate with those who refuse to assimilate? The effect of lowered expectations is rampant in the lib universe.
