Reducing Your Stress With Robots --
Rosie has Arrived.
Once again I shuddered as I spied the latest coating of debris on my dresser. I had just dusted the other day and lo and behold it was dirty again. My sweet little kitty cat, Boo Boo the Fifth, looked up at me guiltlessly as if to say: "It's not my fault." And yet she was guilty, along with her sister Zelda the Graymalkin. Our two rescue cats can’t help it if they are full of fur and thus collect and distribute tons of dust and dirt. I love them dearly but were it not for my pets my house would be much cleaner. I grabbed a Swiffer Duster and picked up enough dust to start a garden. Other than getting rid of my cats I had to find a solution. Just as I was doing a search online for local maid services my hubby burst breathlessly through my office door.
"Honey, I've got a fix for our dust problem -- a Roomba robot!" he exclaimed as he proudly presented his latest toy like a child at show and tell. Now, we had been down this road before when he approached me with this Roomba idea when the darn thing first came out and I emphatically said “no.” As a matter of fact, as I recall, not only did I say “no,” but went on to conclude that this very pricy vacuum cleaner was nothing more than a gimmick to separate hard-working consumers from their money. I was going to have none of that! I told him to promptly take it back for a full refund.
“At least let me show you how it works, then if you don’t like it, I’ll pack it up and take it back,” he said with a toothsome grin. “The store said to try it out for a couple days and if I wasn’t 100 percent satisfied then I could bring it back. The sales clerk seemed sincere when she said she’s never had to do a return on one.”
I reluctantly agreed. We charged her up overnight and the next day we put her to work in a room I had just swept. After only 20 minutes, Paul brought the Roomba back to me and carefully opened its dirt compartment as if he were Indiana Jones opening the Ark of the Covenant. I was surprised to see a tank full of dirt, dust and fur -- and I mean jam-packed.
“Oh my,” I exclaimed! “I hate to admit that you are right and I am wrong, but that is simply amazing.”
I asked him to put “her” back down, so I could watch how this little robot worked. She tanked over our living room’s wood floor, carefully churning under furniture and over carpets. She sensed where the drops in the stairs were and did not fall over. She sensed where extra dirt was and went in circles until every speck of dust was picked up. She sensed where the walls were and chugged along the baseboards brushing out dust even at corners. When her batteries got low, she sensed where her docking station was and found her way back to re-charge for her next battle with the evil dirt.
Because she moves around the house like a little pet, we have named her “Rosie the Roomba Robot.” If you get why we named her “Rosie” you are probably too old and if you don’t get it you are probably too young.
Despite my initial skepticism, “Rosie the Roomba Robot” has turned out to be one of the best purchases hubby has ever made. She not only saves us the time it takes to clean the floors but also decreases the amount of dirt and dust that gets in the air and deposits itself on other surfaces. Our wool carpets look as beautiful as when they were new and my floors have never been cleaner. I don’t have to move the sofa every other day to dust under it, she just goes under there, finds dust bunnies and eats them up.
We now use her in two or more different rooms each day and then start all over. She can even be programmed to do her work when we are away from home. She really is simply amazing and I am a convert. I really love this little machine and don’t know how we managed without her. Rosie has arrived.
