You did it! You woke up early, ate a good breakfast, and hydrated yourself like a good human. You’re in a good mood even though it’s a Monday, and you have a newfound appreciation for the little things in life, like the flowers in your yard or the busy sounds of the city. Then something happens, and all of that optimism bursts like a balloon. The cardboard drink holder gave way, and a tidal wave of coffee drenched the inside of your car, or maybe you locked your keys in the car after the ATM ate your debit card when you were pulling out gas money, and then the rest of the day snowballs into one disaster after the next. Go home and lick your wounds, then get some good sleep to reset. Tomorrow is a new day, and you’ll be laughing about it before you know it, just like these folks with their facepalm moments.
They Aren’t as Smart as We Thought
Despite being an essential part of transforming our houses into smart homes, robotic vacuums aren’t always very bright. My Roomba’s favorite activities include getting stuck in corners, melting down because it ate a sock, and congratulating itself with a victory song for returning to its charging station after I manually put it there because it spent half an hour spinning in circles two inches from the charger.
If you have a robot vacuum and an accident-prone pet, there’s a high and super unfortunate chance your vacuum might take up abstract art as a new hobby and draw smelly brown trails all over your floors. If it lost some more IQ points from hitting itself against the walls, it might even sing the victory song when it’s done.
