This question already has an answer here:
I have a memory about an old science-fiction short story about robots entering into contracts with humans to protect them. Their inventor (importer?) is the last holdout because the protection is so overbearing as to allow humans to do nothing which might put them at the slightest risk; the robots hound him until he too signs the contract---and ends up as protected (or enslaved) as the rest of humankind. Does this ring a bell?
