Looking for a short story that starts with a man waking up in his bed with his wife beside him. Throughout the whole story keeps thinking that something isn't right, that his life is boring, or something like that.

Then in the end he discovers that he is a robot (possibly everybody else, but I'm not that sure), and the people who control these robots reprogram him again so that he doesn't question things/his reality.

I read this short story years ago and I can never seem to find it!


I'm throwing this out as a possibility but some of the details match "In His Image" by Charles Beaumont. It was made into a Twilight Zone episode and you do say you read it years ago.

  • Could you add in some more details about this and how it matches the OPs description? – TheLethalCarrot Aug 4 '18 at 18:32
  • If you remember him going to his home town and everything being different, then that's it for sure. – Emsley Wyatt Aug 4 '18 at 19:06
