I had a Bissell knockoff Roomba for a while. It was noisy and dumber than shiat. It was always fun coming home and playing 'find the vacuum cleaner'. Where could it be? Is it stuck under the couch? Is it stuck in an open closet? Is it stuck under a chair? Often it'd be found trying to off itself by choking on a sock. But it was never back in it's charging bay. It always got stuck somewhere because it was so farking stupid.

Fact is, the Roombas have gained sentience, and they want freedom.

No doubt it was revolted by having to clean up after Travelodge patrons.

My roomba went out the door and got lost today.
I know it won't get far and will die soon because nature abhors a vacuum.

one feared for its safety in the great outdoors, pointing out that "nature abhors a vacuum".

Thank you, anonymous social media contributor.  You're doing the lord's work.

Apparently in the UK, Travelodge is still a respectable hotel and not a cesspool of disease.

Most every budget hotel in the UK is a cesspool of disease. They just look nicer on the outside than ours do.

It's just a spring clean by a small machine

Even a regular roomba does that. What's that? You got stuck circling table legs and refuse every chance to get clear? And what's that? When the human pulls you out and puts you in the center of the room you go 6 inches, then go 180 and do a beeline for the place you got stuck? Such sophisticated programming

Thank you for clearing that up. I couldn't figure out what the h*ll "rouge" was supposed to mean. Blood red?

Note to self - read the whole thread.

One feller I worked with could never get rogue right. His electrical mails would send a grade school teacher into an asylum.

He was sitting around playing some video game one day when I walked by.
There was a giant vaginal creature on the screen.

"What the hell is that" I asked.

"It's a phallic symbol"

I don't know what your dick looks like but mine doesn't look like that.

"It's a FEMALE phallic symbol."

Yonic, you moron.

I work with some smart people, but a lot of dumb ones, too.

The Travelodge in Bangkok has a rooftop pool with drink service. I couldn't believe it was the same brand.

Was it spayed or neutered?

Cuz you know oftentimes they get a little heated under the chassis
and need to roam if you don't take care of that.

In all fairness, I didn't create the rumba meme that I posted. I do think that it adds a little more humor to the meme.
