A city worker will likely be suspended for using a robot voice on the job, despite having already served a suspension for that very same cyborgian offense. This wouldn't be a problem, of course, if he finally came to terms with the fact that he is indeed a replicant, but sometimes the Voigt-Kampff test steers you wrong.

DNAinfo reports that Ronald Dillon, a computer specialist with the IT help desk at the city Health Department, had used a robot voice to answer the phone at work on at least two separate occasions, a move a city administrative judge said should warrant him a 30-day suspension without pay. Dillon was recorded greeting a caller on March 6th, 2014 with a robotic, "You have reached the Help Desk. This is Mr. Dillon. How may I help you?" before continuing the conversation in a vulgar, obsolete human voice—you can listen below:

Dillon is also accused of acting like an android on March 18th of that year, and both of these accusations came after a supervisor told him to stop repeatedly using a robot voice to answer the phone in 2013—that infraction netted him a 20-day suspension. Though the judge ruled that Dillon was likely acting out after his position at the Health Department was reshuffled, Dillon previously told reporters that he was simply speaking in his normal, Brooklyn-accented voice. The above recording doesn't sound like anything you'd hear around Bensonhurst, but perhaps replicants aren't as good at copying humans as they think.
