Captain Antiles is tired of washing dishes. Lucky for him, Amazon delivers to space.
“It’s 2099, why do I still have to wash my own dishes.” Said Captain Antiles scrubbing a plate. “Space flight, yes. Washing dishes, nooo. Elon had his priorities backward if you ask me.”
“Captain!” Yelled Chong running into the kitchen.
Stop! Chong, is this another boring Reddit post?” Said the Captain rolling his eyes.
“So sorry Captain.” Chong bowed looking a little hurt, “Look!” He showed Antiles a video on his phone about a small hover bot that picked up Dishes from a sink with one hand, and scrubbed them with the other. Then put them in a cupboard. “And it is available on Amazon Sir!”
Antilles’ eyes lit up, “We must act at once! Before they run out of stock!”
"On company credit sir?" Said Chong.
"Of course. And Chong," he patted Chong on the shoulder. "You did good."
Chong's eyes became moist. "Thank you Captain." He bowed even lower.

They stood at the dock window looking down at earth, waiting to see the package floating towards them.
"There it is Captain!" Chong trilled.
"Finally."
The small package carrier connected to the ship and emptied its cargo into it. They waited for the light to turn green, Antiles tapping his foot like a dog waiting for his meal.
The package was red with a big yellow word in the center spelling "DisherBot." They opened it slowly and the bot floated up immediately. "Hello world, where is kitchen?"
Chong pointed to the kitchen. The bot flew into the kitchen, stood for a few moments scanning it. Then he started opening all the drawers and building a database of his surroundings. When he was finished he turned on the faucet and picked up a dish from the sink.
Captain Antiles let out a sigh shaking his head, “Unbelievable.”
