God i wish this was a joke but it actually happened in my town! A couple got a new robot vacuum for Christmas and seemed to forget they had it. For those in the know these robo vacuums are normally a setup and you forget in the 1st place but when i comes to problems with it you won’t know till it happens.
My heart sank, Elisa and I had purchased a ROBOT VACUUM cleaner and it arrived 2 days earlier and had somehow turned itself on and was vacuuming our house without us having scheduled it!! It had gotten stuck in the hallway below our stairs which is close to our room, and it kept bumping into our walls which explained the noises we kept hearing.
I was so embarrassed, here I stood in my underwear, about 4 police officers got body cam footage of an almost nude and ashamed home owner.Forsyth County Sheriffs Office Facebook
The officers who responded to the call asked how long they had it. They told them they only had it for 2 days. They all laughed about it and they told the home owners that this happens a lot during the holiday season. How can you not set it up properly? I wonder myself how it turned itself on and started working on it’s own? Skynet? Legion? Aliens? Who knows! What i do know is this happened back in April in Washington County in Oregon when police got a similar phonecall.
Goes to show you need to watch out for these killer robots. You never know where they will strike next!
