Technology is increasing and expanding at a rate that some humans can't keep up with. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is beginning to take over everyday tasks.

Thus, it's no surprise that there are presently cars that drive themselves. There's no human driver but the AI installed in the vehicle, which drives it around.

The two men saw the car's peculiarities as it wasn't built like other cars. It had different sensors on the exterior.

They looked at the driver's side and saw no one inside driving it.

They were still trying to process what was happening when the AI voice in the car informed them of their destination, which was the coffee shop.

At that point, they began to feel the interior of the car and assess the technological advancement they were witnessing.

One of them waved his hands in front of the driver's seat to see if it was truly empty. They kept querying their friend if she trusted the car (because they certainly did not.)
