My rude brother

I have always wanted a nagbot at my shops. The idea was to have a bot talk to the customers, just like those annoying 'greeter bots' you see at other stores. Only difference would be that my nagbot would not leave it at a simple 'hello' but just go on and on talking. Then I met Paladin Pinion a couple of weeks ago, an excellent scripter. I asked her to make the script for me, and she finished it in no time!
So now I'm writing conversations for my brother (the one that is in my stand) to have with my customers. And that's a lot of fun to do. Very simple too; I just write the lines in a note and add pauses. He starts talking when someone is within 10 m. of the stand. Here's one of the conversations: (the numbers are seconds paused between reading the lines, 'agent' says the first name of the avatar that is closest to my brother)

sigh...

I'm so bored.
15
I sit here all day and no one buys anything.
20
I'm sooooo bored.
15
But I can't leave.
17
My brother Tooter will hit me when I leave the stand.
15
Yeah he hits me a lot.
20
To the outside world he may seem like a mild mannered clown
10
but he's cruel and mean.
18
And when I don't sell enough avatars, he makes me sleep outside in the rain.
20
I don''t like sleeping in the rain. I get sick.
18
But he makes me work even when I'm sick.
15
One time when i was so sick I couldn't get up
10
and he used a tazer on me. To get me up.
15
See? he says, You're awake. Now go and work!
10
That's what he says
15 He makes me eat aluminum foil too
12
when I don't sell over 10 avatars a day
20 I haven't sold any avatars yet today
10
I'm scared
15
Would you buy an avatar please, [agent]?
10
The day is almost over and I'm scared.
15
Please help me [agent]!
20
Please buy an avatar!
10
I beg you [agent]!
10
please?
15
Please [agent]?
120

I expect sales to shoot up in the coming weeks, haha. There's another one where he complains about the smell of the customer's old avatar, one about mixing leeks and sprouts and many more to come...

P.S. I found another use for the script: There was a Bright clothes contest (that i couldn't go to) at the Emerald club tonight. I sent one of the contestants a prim named 'Jenny's bright clothes' with the script in it. It talked on and on about quantum physics and string theory. Haha. She won the contest!

It would be funny if you kept a log of customer conversations *with* the nagbot. Whether they were in on the joke, or not, it has to have gotten some unique responses.

When you own a sim you can monitor chat, right? /me shrugs

I liked nagbot, except he did keep hinting I was fat. Lol
