A gift from my mom who worried I might not clean my apartment, Roomba cleans it for me. All I need to do is push a button, and she takes care of the rest.
Most of the time, Roomba is the rockstar I show off when friends come to visit. Initially, we got off to a bumpy start. I trusted her to clean my apartment when I was in the other room. When I returned, she was hard at work, hiding under a table cleaning the floorboards or so I thought.
I continued with my evening routine, and checked my email. But, when I went to log-in, the internet gave me an error message. Strange, I wondered why It was no longer working. Then, it occurred to me Roomba might be to blame. I walked over to my wireless router, and sure enough it was not in its normal location. I found the router underneath the bed with the wires wrapped around each of the legs of the bed, and Roomba in between.
I stopped Roomba, scolded her, and untangled the wires to reset the router. A few minutes later, my internet was working again as Roomba switched to off.
That day, I learned even though my roommate was a robot, she had her flaws just like any human roommate might.
