Stupid bloody Neato, just plain stupid, or is it the operator.
You can read all about my love hate relationship with Neato here.
So Neato got me again, I am continually being sucked in by Neato hence the love hate relationship. Last week I thought I would let Neato have the run of upstairs, imagining that I would come home and not need to vacuum upstairs as with there now being only the two of us and as I am the only one to use my office, I figured we could get away with vacuuming upstairs fortnightly.
So I charged Neato up, let him go, checking he wasn’t going to fall down the stairs or fall over the balcony, so far so good, then I programmed him to start at 2pm, figured that way by the time I got home if Neato got into trouble I could rescue him.
Coming home, I opened the door expecting to hear the whir of Neato’s engine, but no all I could here was a lot of beeping. Neato was stuck in the toilet, had managed to close the door on himself. Typical!
So once again, I rescued him, set him up to go again, then went downstairs to start dinner. Not 5 minutes later, same deal, clearly not a forward thinker, slow learner is my Neato. So I gave up, he’s beaten me.
So this week I set Neato up to give the once over downstairs, came home and yep this time he’s tangled himself up in the tassels on the rug. I just want to throw him out at this stage, I untangled him. Shoved him back in his dock, warning, that I would deal with him later.
|He has been misbehaving|
As I looked around the floors, I thought it a bit strange that the floors weren’t as clean as they usually appear after Neato has done his stuff, so thinking maybe I needed to empty his bin, I pulled it out and it was empty. Oh crap so now it’s broken, but then upon closer inspection the funnel where the dusts feeds through was blocked with all this coarse what looked like hair/fur.
Oh crap Neato’s eaten one of the cats, can you believe I went to check we still had two cats. No he hadn’t eaten one of the cat’s, he had in fact got himself clogged up with the fibers from the new upstairs rug. At least I solved the problem, he’s not broken, just stupid.
Will it ever end?
Probably not but it’s fun trying isn’t it.
Have a great week my friends
