I think a good trial would be for the Walton family to have their groceries delivered by Walmart customers. Work out the kinks that way, see how that goes...
That scenario will never happen because the Walton's don't shop at Walmart. They already have personal assistants, cooks and many other employees who cater to their every whim.

The idea is too far ahead of its time. This will be a thing in 20 years when robotic delivery services are more common. People would be much more comfortable having a robot restock the fridge than a human.

I wouldn't trust a robot anymore than I would a person. And besides if it comes to that point you'll be homeless and begging for food, not having robots deliver it. Pretty sure a lot of folks on this board will be elderly in 20 years.
Except that a robot would have to be explicitly progammed to rob you. A poorly paid human wouldn't.

Not sure what you mean by "if it comes to that point." Robotic food delivery would be a good option for the elderly and indigent.

That's what I mean. Look at all the malware in the world. Why on earth would anyone implicitly trust a robot?

You trust your car, no? You ever seen a modern car? Because people already trust robots.... it doesn't take much to push em from car to home delivery.

A robot snuck into my house while I was sleeping.
It replaced everything I owned with an exact replica.
I'll never trust them again.

That made me giggle. To be honest I have no idea if I would or not at this time.

I'd be fine with a self-driving car backing into my driveway and the trunk automatically opens to reveal all of the groceries I ordered. Having Walmart employees rifling through my desk and underwear drawer...not so much.
