Get your revenge on Bezos by tricking the cameras into thinking you didn’t pick up any items. Or invite Rorie to lunch there and have him hand you a bunch of items. Crime Crew!!

If you ask someone to hand you an item it will charge them instead of you.

*looks at web page*

These places aren't even open 24/7? What's the point of an evil robot convenience store if you can't wander in blitzed off your ass at 3am and get a mediocre sandwich and some dental floss?

Chai = čaj = tea.

@tr0n: English is not one of the languages to get its word for tea from the Chinese chá and thus we use chai as shorthand to refer to masala chai, an Indian spiced tea. I have no problem with this, but it does result in people saying "chai tea", or literally "tea tea".

But for what it's worth, I don't know much about traditional masala chai, but I'm guessing the majority of what we drink in the U.S. is at this point extremely far removed from that.

I wonder what happens if you fall in the store and knock some items over. Or when fruit falls off the stand.

Sorry... wait... can someone explain to me how this works again? Do you nee Amazon Prime to go to this awful nightmare store? And the cameras are the thing that charge you for the thing you picked up? Can you put stuff back??? This is truly awful.

Great episode btw.

That's a shame. For some reason the site video player hangs a lot for me so I watch everything on Youtube. I guess I have to just download it.
