Join me each week for a series called I’VE GOT THIS FRIEND where I’ll share the funny stories about the people in my life! There are a lot of them and they’re so funny you’ll think I’m making them up, but they’re legit…I promise!
THE ROOMBA + DOG DIARRHEA
Remember when the roomba first came out? Everyone was obsessed with being able to turn it on and leave the house, only to return with a perfectly vacuumed home! THE CONVENIENCE! THE EASE!
Well, I’ve got this friend who bought one right off the bat. She had young kids and hairy dogs who she was always cleaning up after. The idea of being able to turn the roomba on while she was running errands was just too good to deny. So she bought it.
And just like everyone else…SHE TURNED SMUG.
C’mon, if you’re a roomba owner, you know you’re smug, too!
Until the day she came home and SHE WASN’T SO SMUG.
She opened the door and noticed something was a little different with her cream colored berber carpet.
There were zig zags and swirls everywhere…all over the first floor. And she just stood in the entryway trying to figure out what she was seeing.
Was it paint? Was it mud? Did the kids get into something?
And then she smelled it.
And she just knew.
She dropped everything and ran into the house.
And she saw it…
A GIANT WET SHADOOBY in the corner by the dog door.
Sure enough, the roomba rolled right on through that shit (pun intended) and tracked it ALL OVER THE HOUSE.
She didn’t know if she should scream or cry, so she chose to laugh and so laugh she did.
And she never used the roomba again.
