love it with a caveat November 4 201 By Previously my wife and l read the post about someone's Roomba trailing through dog poop We laughed and didn't think another thing about it Let me tell you how yesterday went While at a training for work l receive a text message from my 10 year daughter Dad please call me the floors are dead' I assumed that auto correct had gotten involved and was trying to figure out what it had corrected from Also in the back of my mind l assumed our 14 year old lab Dalmatian mix had passed away only to be found by our daughter attempted to call my daughter with no answer and then called my wife My wife had received the same text and had talked to our daughter Our lab is fine our daughter was not It appears that during our absence our 85 pound Band-dog mastiff had a bit of stomach distress This in its self isn't a big deal as pet owner we understand that periodically poop happens What caused our very articulate 10 year daughter to become stymied was the fact that Rudy our Roomba's name at 1415 hours started his tour of duty Roomba's name at 1415 hours started his tour of duty Our daughter entered the house at around 1430 Rudy had been diligently cleaning our house for 15 minutes give or take It seems that he had made a bee line towards the piles of dog stomach distress and then gleefully in a poop filled rampage cleaned the house don't know if dog excrement somehow is a super boost to Roombas much like speed boosts on video games or if Rudy somewhere deep in his programing has a code built in that basically states if dog mess is found crank all operations up to 11 But it appears that in a very small bit of time he had somehow traversed into the master bedroom the hall way kitchen and of course the living room As any Roomba owner knows they travel in spiral patterns they bump into walls and furniture and they stop and spin looking for dust or hair This built in patterning is truly effective in the elimination of pet hair dust and small bits of debris This patterning also seems to mimic the path a three year old hopped up on red bull and given an open full paint can would have If you keep the afore mentioned three year old in mind and substitute poop for paint that is what we are looking at Roombas also have a small propeller like brush attachment This attachment sticks out in front of the Roomba Its' original purpose appears to be reaching into corners where the round Roomba cannot reach Unfortunately this attachment also seems to have the ability to violate the known laws of physics by flinging poop in all directions angles around corners inside locked cabinets and oddly straight up in the air to hit a 12 foot ceiling So give that three year old a fan and let them swing it around as much as possible So back to our daughter as she entered the house she was struck by a smell that could only be described as Cerebos's backyard after being fed Taco Bell and shock she looked down up and around and observed the poopy Pollock patterning on the walls She immediately went further into the house where she got the strength of will will never know to find her phone to text her parents Before she could reach her phone a poop flinging Rudy turned the corner and the chase was on I don't know what happen in the time between our daughter being spotted by the poop flinging Rudy and the text message because she refuses to talk about it She was able to stop the rampage by disabling Rudy and moving him to the backyard After which she sent the text I do have a theory on why she sent the floors are dead text She being a normal 10 year girl has yet to witness anything close to the atrocity she saw Given that she could only process the thought the floors are dead In hopes we would call and she could articulate the carnage Back to my wife I didn't get all the above information until after the event I was talking to my wife when she initially entered the house All heard was the garage door open about 20 seconds of silence a very soft oh God and then her telling me it's bad I'll call you back' In her shock she forgot to hang up the phone and for the next 5 or so minutes l could hear snippets of How did it get there? Why Oh man we might need to buy a rug we just put in new floors Oh God arrived home at around 1830 hours Our house smelt of beach and cleaning fluid My wife and daughter both freshly showered both sitting down both having only what can be described as a 1000 yard stare My wife did the thought the floors are dead In hopes we would call and she could articulate the carnage Back to my wife I didn't get all the above information until after the event was talking to my wife when she initially entered the house All I heard was the garage door open about 20 seconds of silence a very soft oh God and then her telling me it's bad l'll call you back In her shock she forgot to hang up the phone and for the next 5 or so minutes l could hear snippets of How did it get there? Why Oh man we might need to buy a rug we just put in new floors Oh God arrived home at around 1830 hours Our house smelt of beach and cleaning fluid My wife and daughter both freshly showered both sitting down both having only what can be described as a 1000 yard stare My wife did say three words He is outside tried to take Rudy apart as much as light and my stomach would allow As it stands right now some of his parts are soaking in a solution of bleach and water I am hoping through the next week l will be able to thoroughly clean his outsides and insides So if I was to rate the Roomba l would highly suggest it others We love the little guy he has cleaned our floors without compliant been a source of entertainment and reduces our work load with our pets do have to add one caveat If you own pets only allow the Roomba to work while you are there Or you will spend a week cleaning out at poop filled Roomba 1404 of 1445 people found this review helpful Helpful Not Helpful Another Roomba-pet-mess review Meme
