I introduced a new Smart Cleaning School character in "I Can't Take Any More Customers" His name is Robot Bob the Solo Cleaning Machine. Bob doesn't eat. He doesn't sleep. He only needs oil and a battery charging station. This stud of a solo cleaner can leave his charging dock at 7 am Monday morning and start cleaning his first house by 7:30am. He cleans 3 houses without a lunch break. He doesn't stop to answer a phone call. He is a phone. He doesn't check the news or social media. It's all hardwired inside of him. Robot Bob just cleans and drives. Oh yeah, Robot Bob can drive because he has a self-driving electric car. Robot Bob finished 3 houses by 4:30pm and earns $150 per clean or $450 for his house cleaning day. But he is not done. Bob stops back at his charging station for a 1-hour recharge and then drives to clean his first office. Robot Bob arrives at this first nightly office at 6pm and proceeds to clean 4 offices straight through the night because he is a Solo Cleaning Machine. Robot Bob finishes his 4th office at 5:30am Tuesday morning. He earns $600 in offices for the night. Robot Bob then drives to his charging station for a 1-hour recharge and is back to clean 3 houses on Tuesday. That's just one day in the life of Robot Bob the Solo Cleaning Machine. He cleans 3 houses and 4 offices from Monday through Friday, then he cleans 8 offices on Saturday and Sunday. Isn't Robot Bob a total stud?! He is creating $7,650 per week in revenue and since he doesn't eat or sleep, his expenses are very small. He only has to pay for electricity, oil, maintenance on his car, cleaning supplies, and insurance. Yes, even Robot Bob realized he needs to be a professional. These numbers are insane for the Solo Cleaning Machine. Robot Bob is profiting $350,000 per year!
Today, I was able to bring Robot Bob onto the Smart Cleaning School to answer some Q&A.
Ken: How are you able to be here for this Q & A at 12pm on a Wednesday?
Robot Bob: Bob is cleaning right now. Bob am always cleaning. Bob has a built in computer and phone. Bob receives your questions and answers while cleaning.
Ken: Wow, you are quite the Solo Cleaning Machine. What do you think of the humanoid solo cleaners who try to clean as much as you?
Robot Bob: Bob laughs. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. No humanoid can clean like Bob. Humanoids need sleep. What a waste of cleaning time. Humanoids need food. What a waste of money and time. Bob only needs oil and a recharge. But Bob does wonder about the humanoid Chic-Fil-A experience?
Ken: I'm sure glad that I'm a human...oid because those waffle fries and vanilla shakes are delicious! Bob, here's another question. Where is your recharging station?
Robot Bob: Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Bob laughs at your humans. Bob earns $350,000 a year in profit. Bob invested in a recharging station park with 100 charging stations. Bob uses one station and rents the other 99 to stupid humanoids to charge their Teslas.
Ken: Robot Bob the Solo Cleaning Machine. And now he's Robot Bob the Slumlord. Last question for today. Robot Bob, do you have any advice for the solo cleaning humanoids who have the weakness for needing to eat, sleep, and see their families that say they can't take on any more customers because they don't have any more time?
Robot Bob: Change to robot. If humanoid cannot do that, then start tracking your cleaning times like Bob. Bob has computer tracking every part of cleaning. Bob knows what is slow. Bob adjusts. Bob learns each house and office. Bob gets faster. Weak humanoid need to learn like Bob.
Ken: Thanks Robot Bob for answering a few humanoid questions.
Robot Bob: Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Bye.
Well, there you have it. I hope you enjoyed our first Q&A with Robot Bob. What do you think fellow humanoids? What would you like to learn from Bob? Clearly, we have a long way in our journey to reach his level. Do you have any questions for Robot Bob? Please send your questions into firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll ask him in our next installment of Q&A with Robot Bob the Solo Cleaning Machine.
