Too think that a roomba should make life easier...not spread dog shit about????

I've just walked in from work, expecting my lovely roomba Bertha to have cleaned everywhere, to her usual high standards, and be sitting smuggly in her docking station.

Insted I've came in to find all my downstairs floors covered in dog shit! The Roomba has carefully spread it everywhere, including the bloody hall.


Actually AIBU to get rid of the dogs insted?

Sorry but its quite funny.

I don't have a roomba or a dog so I don't know of this experience grin

Wtf is a roomba?

That is hideous, and it will be great fun trying to clean your Roomba as well. It must stink.
You will need new brush.

But YABU to have a female Roomba. Mine is a male.

Have you stuck googly eyes on your Roomba? grin

YANBU - I do hope they're wooden!

ooh dear, this is too funny!

That sounds horrific, I'd be tempted to just walk out and let the next person home deal with it.

Dh's prostate has given way from laughing so much
oh yanbu!

I'm sorry, but that is so funny.

You should dock her wages! Naughty Bertha!

I have always wanted a roomba no dogs or cats so no prob there

Minus the dog poo issue (by the way I am still laughing) would you recommend one?

TheCunnyFunt Thu 14-Jun-12 20:27:24

Am I missing something? None of that makes any sense to me WHATSOEVER! confused

takingiteasy Thu 14-Jun-12 20:27:56

I would be another who would close the door and leave it for dh. The dog is his whenever it shits on the floor.

oshuk Thu 14-Jun-12 20:45:45

here's a roomba, with an extra treat thrown in!

FeakAndWeeble Thu 14-Jun-12 20:48:25

OP, are you sitting amongst the dog shit mumsnetting about it? Because this is the image I have in my head...

TitsalinaBumSquash Thu 14-Jun-12 20:51:25

I have a Roomba (named Brian since you asked) he would NEVER do such things, I do worry that he judges me though when I make him do the bedroom floor and the kittens have got bits of guff everywhere, he has a judgey look about him, he is amazing though, best Hoover I've ever owned, Derek the Dyson sits surly in his cupboard only coming out for stairs these days.

scarletforya Thu 14-Jun-12 20:53:49

Ahhhh haaa haaaa haaa! grin

blush sorry OP, I would sob if it happened to me!

Ooh it was so tempting to leave it for DH....

It was particularly artistic with the crop-circle style swirls where poor Bertha had tried in vain to clean a patch where her sensors had told her it was particularly diiirty.

Wooden floors so not too bad to clean...the rug by the door though I might just chuck, I've just spent the last 40 minute trying to clean the machine itself- a million tiny nooks & cranies all covered in shoite. A felt tip pen proved surprisingly effective in the screws.

First time in years the dogs have had an accident, but yesterday one of them got her snout in the dog food and ate 3 days worth of food!

I do love her though, with a toddler and two hairy dogs, shes a god send normally, as my four legged friends seem to molt twice as much as anyone elses dogs.

Loving the description as "artistic". Our roomba keeps giving up halfway and basically sighing and saying "Please can you just tidy up so I can do my job!"

confusedpixie Thu 14-Jun-12 20:57:51

Quite possibly one of the few real LOL moments I've ever had grin

Sorry OP, must be awful

The kittens on the roomba is brilliant grin


TheCunnyFunt Thu 14-Jun-12 21:01:44

That is amazing. I want one! Minus the dog shit.

Love this one
