Drones used to be just the stuff of science fiction. No more! Drones of all sizes, shapes and brands are seemingly now a major part of our culture.
Today, and for the next couple of days, ending in July 4, the Yonkers Tribune brings you some fun stories about drones, tech fiction that hopefully will entertain you. You probably didn’t know that drones can complain, find better jobs, misbehave, etc. Ha! Sounds like humans, no?
Hope you enjoy the stories. Happy July 4th!

Drones Don’t Get Invited to City’s New Year’s Eve Bash
Outrage was in evidence among drones (y’know, those flying thingies that come in all sizes and shapes) when they learned they were not invited to the massive party thrown by the City of White Plains, north of New York City. More specifically, the drones were told they were forbidden to be in certain areas of the city between the hours of 2 p.m. on New Year’s Eve to 12:30 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2018.
“Yep, we’re grounded for the most fun hours, through no fault of our own,” grumbled one of the drones. He continued, “It’s so unfair. And just wait until a crime is committed or a pet or human goes missing. Then the officials will be shouting, ‘Send in the drones We need them for aerial surveillance.'”
“No way,” answered an especially defiant drone, suggesting that that will be the perfect time for a job action. He said, “They didn’t invite US to their party. Why should we help THEM find their sniveling kids or grandmas? Fair is fair.”
