Vacuum THAT!

Let robots do the work.  In Shut Up And Mop the Kitchen Floor, He Explained Bill explores the Swedish passive-aggressive woman who conducted a(nother) academic, reason-blind “study” to prove her own conclusions: Men are happier if they do the housework as they are less likely to suffer from psychological problems (Mail Online). Yeh right. I’m the Househusband domestic-worker/vacuum-pusher.  I know how to fill and unload a clothes-washer and a dish-washer, but my full-time-job Wife just bought me a Roomba whose motto is, “Let robots do the work.” – damn straight skippy VACUUM THAT! and we’ll all be happier.   (We named it Little Jimmy Kirby, after the BAR gunner in Combat! and a job I almost had in College trying to sell Kirby vacuums – almost because evidently I am really NOT cut-out for retail sales, even in on-location situations – I just always get de-selected.)

Anyhow my vacuuming (and dusting) performance has been lagging lately, and my excuse is exactly like being bored in school and looking out the window: guys who stay home and vacuum do NOT “like” to do it, and it doesn’t make them happier – we’ll just leave the “psychological issues” psychobabble to the academics who assuredly do have issues and babble.

I would much rather re-load on my tedious single-stage press, for my Garand or AR – or even COOK FOOD (yay & yum, slow-cooker “robot” does it for me!), but even as an 80% neat-freak vacuuming and “cleanliness issue” work (cleaning/dusting) is tears-of-boredom low-priority, and just I can’t push it higher up the DNA-ladder because I just can’t get emotionally invested in it. Srsly, Let robots do the work.

  1. That was the other Costco option, but with the Roomba slightly cheaper on the local floor display I thought we’d give it a whirl, BUT: bigger tires and more power could lead to an interesting range-bot!!

  2. I have the Neato Robotics “Floorbot”. I can watch Floorbot work for hours, but I can’t stop imagining how cool it would be to mount a target stand on him and let him roam at 100 yards.
