I got a job at a little robot repair shop near Chinatown. It was just outside the robot bar district around Pillar Seventeen and I was staying at Piano House so it was easy to get to work. I just took the elevator down Pillar Seventeen or sometimes if it was a nice day, I liked to walk down the catwalks.
The robot repair shop was right near Chinatown so sometimes the boss used to send me down there to get parts.
The First Model
The first model I built from scratch was a nanny robot. I say I built it from scratch but of course I built it from parts. The only people who build robots from scratch are the people at Universal Robots (and some say they are all robots).
A Problem with My Boss
It was easy and cheap so I made another one. Then I started to sell them. I started to sell them but I didn’t tell my boss and one day he found out that I was moonlighting. He was furious. He fired me. I did not mind.
Vortik’s Robot Repairs
What I did was build new and specially designed robots from existing parts of other robots and life-forms.
It was a great success!
