Whenever we are making an account online, purchasing something from a website or just signing in, we are often required to verify ourselves as humans. It’s called Captcha. In some cases, there are alphabets of upper and lower cases with a few numbers and we are required to type them down correct. While in other cases we are required to select pictures that relate to the given word above and then check the box “I’m not a robot”.
Well everyone is used to this practice because safety is key. So the site needs to make sure that you are human. But have you ever thought you will check the box in real life, on a piece of paper? Well, I guess not. But this happened to a woman who went to buy a new car. She had to sign some documents and then came to this page where she had to check the box “I’m not a robot”. This is quite surprising, isn’t it?
Marci Robin was as surprised as we are right now. She had never imagined in her life that she would have to prove someone by signing on the paper that she is a human. She wondered why the car dealer can’t see that she is a human, a girl and not a robot or something else. Well, Marci took and pen and checked the “I’m not a robot” box to prove that she is a real human being.
Marci questioned about this as if this might be an error. But she found out that this is the company’s corporate policy and it isn’t a onetime error. The policy requires the car dealership to replicate all documents that were on the online website to real paper. So all documents had this “I’m not a robot” checkbox included, because when purchasing online, people check this box.
Well, it is still strange because a human eye can certainly distinguish between a human and a robot. The technological world is progressing very fast, in the near future there might be robots that are difficult to distinguish from real humans so more documents will be needed to be signed. Let’s see what the future holds for us.
