I want a vacuum too so that someone will text me.


joeChump

I’m replying to your comment, just so you get a message: Joe needs your attention: he is being burned by lava. (His English Breakfast tea is slightly too hot.)

Thanos needs your attention: it’s 4:50 am and I cannot sleep

take some S L E E P Y T I M E Z D R O O G Z and you'll be all better in the morning :)


Zjackrum

Except 'morning' will be like 4 pm.


JTdaBOSS

you could skip an entire day if you take enough S L E E P Y T I M E Z D R O O G Z (;

Or an entire life. S L E E P Y T I M E Z D R O O G Z makes it possible

Justin needs your attention: he is drowning in a vat of acid. (He took a shit and a little bit of the water splashed up.)


joeChump

Poor man’s bidet. You lucked out.


MyUsernameIsLongDong

The first day I had my roomba I put it on before I went to work. It was pretty cool, I had the app to control it as well as integration with Alexa. So about two hours later I get a message like, "warning your roomba is in trouble." When I got home I immediately see it, hanging and dangling about 2 feet off the ground after having chewed through a couple feet of my headphones cable. Completely suspended in the air like it was on a noose. This motherfucking vacuum spent one day in my house and was like, "Ya know what? I'd rather fucking die", and God damn hanged itself.


HedgehogBeanz

What did i just read mate


quiltervabeach

I.can.not.stop.laughing. GOLD!


-DelRad-

Roomba must've been depressed. Give it lots of time and love and also consult a suicide something doctor I guess cuz your Roomba seems quite suicidal


fuctedd

But where was it hanging from?


brickmaster32000

So the headphone cable was hanging off a table and when the roomba sucked up the end it got wrapped around the roller. The headphone must have stuck on something so when the roller turned it couldn't pull the headphone down so instead the roomba started climbing the cable.


Rico-soul_Light

lmfao lol, suicide (halo voice)


ReadontheCrapper

Do you have a cat? I am imagining a poor roomba seeing a field of cat gak and immediately deciding on seppuku.


FeDeWould-be

what’s cat gak


ReadontheCrapper

Vomit. Either hairball or when they eat too fast and puke it right back up. That last one, I call it Scarf ‘n Barf. Usually heard but not seen / found… or you find it in the middle of the night by stepping in it. I do love my cat!


Islands-of-Time

Omg the Scarf ‘n Barf had me laughing so hard.

Kingura requires your attention. Kingura managed to do his dishes and decided to tell you in a crude imitation of authentic text messages.

Neandergal requires your attention. Neandergal is losing brain cells and about to experience brain death. (Currently watching Adam Sandler movie with kids).

joeChump

DON’T DO IT, YOU HAVE SO MUCH TO LIVE FOR. SO MANY FLOORS TO CLEAN. ok on second thoughts, proceed.


Magnon

Maybe herbert really loves his job and is satisfied with his life. Silly meat bags, assuming all beings are as needy as they are.


wakasagihime_

I like to think they're all programmed like Mo from Wall-E. Ever so diligent and passionate about cleaning dirt off the floor, the adorable little fucker.


Lanthemandragoran

Mmmo.


joeChump

Why is he clearly trying to escape then? And don’t say it’s because he really wants to clean that other floor because that shag pile will be the death of him and he’ll burn out his motor for sure.


Glum_Succotash9352

My old roommate's Roomba always managed to get into the backyard, pass through the cement and try to vacuum the lawn.


Kekris_The_Betrayer

Sometimes you gotta vacuum your lawn


jooes

People are so ungrateful, poor little Roomba is just trying his best.


OutlawJessie

Above and beyond, I'd say.


ReactsWithWords

“Who was that masked Roomba?” “That was…The Lawn Ranger.”


OutlawJessie

Oh yes. Have my free award because that pleased me.

If you have any cats just wait for the endless lion endangerment notifications!

I love dramatic vacuums


Schattentochter

I want that to be a subreddit so bad.


Thickas2

[Here, I created a sub for dramatic technology.](https://www.reddit.com/r/DramaticTechnology/) /r/DramaticTechnology Which was funny because the automated message I got afterwards congratulated me heartily for pressing a few buttons and creating my own subreddit(!)


OutlawJessie

Thickas2

Haha! xposted


Chanreaction

sersoniko

Nothing like that psycho Roomba


Evenchant

Those are cute notifications. Makes me really want one and attach google eyes to it just to see it roam around my place.


CozyCosey

Mine is too much of a scaredy-cat to go near it while it's working. She often maneuvers herself under my bed behind all my storage boxes lol.


WhatsWhoWithYou

i swear ive caught my vacuum about to pull this kind of shit but then stop because i was watching


Myst3rySteve

The second half of your comment made me laugh twice as hard as the first half


FlavorOfGlove

I'm convinced some models are remote controlled by someone laughing as they ram into my ankles. Every fucking time.


Spongiie

Everytime I do something on the floor while it cleans, it comes to bother me. It happens all the time, really also made me wonder..


Krakskap

i want a roomba with an ai like that


badcatmal

Mine is Bernard, and he does an amazing job.


Tharanor

Dobby. He stops working when he finds a sock


Lagena15

This is great.


Rokarth

Gordon. Refuses to eat anything that’s RAW.

THIS DUST IS SO FUCKING RAW, IT TASTES LIKE YOUR GRANNYS SKIN


Fearitzself

I found out someone with my same name has one of these that he also named doby. And we've both made the sock joke. Then I see this comment. There's dozens of us.


Syrairc

I named mine "the stupid robot" so my exasperated phone gives me notifications like The stupid robot is stuck by a cliff The stupid robot's dust bin may be full The stupid robot has completed a job


HaikusbyKA

Glad to see we aren’t the only ones that think ours is stupid sometimes. We named ours “Dumbass” and use Red Forman’s voice when referring to it.


NameIdeas

My six year old named ours when he was only 2. It is known as "Pick Up Dirt" and I can't call it anything else. When he was two he'd run screaming down the hallway as Pick Up Dirt chased him. We have two kids now and the older one has shown the younger one that while Pick Up Dirt may be scary, he lacks the ability to climb furniture. Our youngest will stand on the couch and yell, "Haha, you can't get me Pick Up Dirt!"


kelowana

Ours is Roomba-Piet (Pete).


Matty_Sings

We have a Pete too, we put googly eyes on him.


petunia-pineapple

My husband named our Roomba Nob Gobblin 😐 “Nob Gobblin successfully completed the job!”


kelowana

Good you remembered me! Need to get done too. Edit: *reminded


iwantauniquename

*reminded. But I like the way "you remembered me" sounds, and will be using it myself in future! (When I make corrections, it is not to be unkind, but because I think the writer is learning English, and to help)


kelowana

Haha, you are right. Had an language void passing at that moment I guess.


HavohejPantocrator

We named ours AWESOMEO-4000

GratefuLSD25

wait ...... you can name your roomba ?! ummmm .. i think i’m going to get one now


brawlycobra

Not only that, but in the app instead of "Activation date", it will show as "Their birthday". They are really going for the robot pet take on it.


PiedDansLePlat

Refurbished ones are up for adoption then :)


GratefuLSD25

PoodlePopXX

This makes me so happy because I have that thing where I think everything has a soul.


Nparallelopposite

I think plushies and cars can have souls so I think we could be friends


your_average_entity

Sounds perfect for my family with my mom who won’t let us get a pet


notyourcoloringbook

Get a dog mannequin. I left it on the front porch before I brought it in and I got my mom all worked up saying, "okay, I know you might be mad but I found this abandoned in the trash and I couldn't just leave it there!" Then I brought in a dog mannequin. My dad loved it. My mom hated it. I thought it was totally worth it. My dad and I would move it around the house scolding it or praising it depending on where we put it.


Thornblade

Rowdy no!


notyourcoloringbook

If the dog didn't come with a name (Barker... He was a mannequin from a store where I worked), I would have named him Rowdy.


raspberryscones

Mine is absolutely like another pet. You even get the full experience of watching where you step it it's running!


GratefuLSD25

thank you so much for this!


OutlawJessie

But we all talk to our Roombas anyway, they might as well be pets. https://www.reddit.com/r/tumblr/comments/bag7qz/ganbatte_roombasan/

TenTonFluff

Reminds me of when my parents "robotic lawnmower"? Took his life in a lake that's 20 meters away from his original route, they got text msg saying " hurbert went off route" "Hubert has been electrocuted". Not sure if the translation is correct but it's a funny story.


Gwynnja

Mine was doing fine yesterday until I received I message saying something along the lines of „I am stuck. Help!“. When I went to look it was just standing in the middle of the room with nothing stuck anywhere. Ah well... sometimes I need attention too so I understand.


petunia-pineapple

He was having a mid floor crisis.


curxxx

Was it surrounded by natural sunlight? I’ve noticed natural sunlight can confuse their sensors into thinking they’re trapped.

morgthaabrat

herbert is literally me . i stay being over dramatic


CumBucketChampion

*"Hey step-owner, I'm stuck"*


Feeling-my-age

This is why I never let Maude the mop follow Reggie the Robot. She’d just push him over the cliff and follow him.


wokkelp

I have an i7 (same brand) and it just sucks. (No really, it doesn’t do corners. You constantly have to pick-up cat toys because the vacuum gets stuck on them. You have to clear the sensor at its mouth because of all the cat hairs after every run. It knocks over empty glass bottles in the kitchen. It leaves cat hairs on mats and carpets. Sometimes it even gets stuck on power cords that I tucked away in corners.) I thought I would save time with this, but after 3 years. It just sits on its dock, sometimes not even charging while I use my old fashioned vacuum cleaner.


dichiejr

- eat hair - immediately gets sick on cat hair - chews on cords - chews on cat toys - tips over plastic bottles - sits where it's supposed to but still doesn't do what u want it to congrats on your robotic cat! the future really is amazing.


schraubdeckeldose

Well, it's supposed to suck

Glad you pointed that out, I didn’t realize that when I typed that one-liner.

To be fair, the world is a very different place when you're two inches tall.


Sololane_Sloth

i swear to god these "stuck near a cliff" messages dude. Mine keeps folding over carpets only to mount it afterwards and then panic. This stuck near a cliff thing is the biggest downside of these things - especially if it won't even save the roomba as shown in OP's picture

shaddowkhan

I just got one of these little guys and it's one of the best investments I made in a long time. All i say is "Okay Google start Suzy". And she off, she can even mop. Great little thing. But they are indeed dramatic.


OutlawJessie

I put mine in the bathroom and he busies himself wandering around sucking up talc and that, does a really good job. If I set him going where I can see him I find myself just watching him and worrying that he's missed a bit.


shaddowkhan

Yeah sometimes I just stand and watch her go. Great little things.


psychogeek94

Which one do you have? Most of our floors are hard surfaces and need the mopping feature.


shaddowkhan

Ecovac U2 Pro, good price with all the bells and whistles. Great strater vac
