Perceptions of Roomba

For Christmas I went out and bought my wife an iRobot Roomba 400 vacuum cleaning robot from Target. I thought it would make her life a little easier. After all she is a stay-at-home mom, and takes care of the household while I slave away all day in server rooms, and on support calls.

I felt that if I got her this robot to do her vacuuming, she could do other things like eat her bon-bons, and catch up on her soaps (Just kidding honey :-P).

The one thing I didn't count on was how deathly afraid my daughter would be of it. She has almost gotten over her fears now, but she is still pretty timid of it.

To kind of give you an example of just how scared she was of the Roomba, I put together this little video.

If you don't have a Roomba, you should certainly go out and get one. I have seen them upwards of $400. I got the cheap model at Target though for under $200 and it does a bang up job!

Do you have a Roomba? How do you like it? Let us know in the comments.
