Could anyone help me please. I am looking for a short story where the setting is on Mars, protagonist a human waste disposal worker. His job is to shovel broken down robots into the furnace and they make disturbing sounds as they get shoveled in.

I think the title was something like "They told a story"

Any help will be appreciated.

  • Maybe Strikebreaker by Asimov? A visitor learns that the resident garbage disposal worker is on strike, and there's a strong social taboo on anyone else doing that job, so the visitor volunteers for the job, but now he's turned himself into a pariah. – Carlos Arturo Serrano Mar 1 '18 at 1:29
