David Roberts (Small chance) says
This profession requires skills that are uniquely human in nature. For example, the emotional skill of empathy. This ability allows for better customer service when situations arise that are beyond the average daily employee/customer interaction. When the customer has a unique issue regarding a transaction, only a human skilled in empathy can discern what is best for both the customer and the company.

Amazon is testing automated stores with no employees running them. Eventually other grocers may follow suit. There would be no place for me, and I am not tech savvy.
