We had a Roomba that we received as a Christmas present from my brother in law a long time ago. We sold it in a tag sale a few years after he gave it to us. We have too many area rugs with fringe.

I'm holding out for a robot maid, like Rosie from "The Jetsons."
If you use your imagination, you might be able to improve upon that as a wish list item. ;) Ms. Crookshanks perhaps?

Your version is close. MIT has one.

1) They’re not very good. You’re retired - just vacuum.

2) If you get one, shoot the dog.

I know people who have come home to dog crap smeared all over their house from their Roomba repeatedly running it over
Could be worse.

I can’t even imagine the smell of burnt and charred sewage. Delicious.

I have a Deebot. It works but it doesn’t get every speck of dust. It’s nice to get under the bed and such.
We got one as a gift because my wife was talking about how much she wanted one (I"m fine with the Sebo vacuum the thing cost a fortune but its a killer machine) - that damn thing get stuck on table legs, pedestal base of a big industrial fan, etc, etc.

I'll take a real vacuum any day over it. What's it take me 10 minutes to vacuum the place - the house isn't 15,000 square feet for god sake.

My dog left me a surprise in the kitchen this morning. He's 13 and on borrowed time. He just can't always hold it, unfortunately.
