What Happens When Roomba Runs Over Dog Poo In The Middle Of The Night

Jesse Newton woke up in the middle of the night after his four-year-old son had crawled into bed smelling distinctively like dog poop. The smell was so horrifying, the man jumped out of the bed, only to discover that their Roomba robotic vacuum cleaner had run over their doggie’s pile, and now covered the entire house with the deuce – think rugs, floor, furniture and kid’s toys. All of this horror happened while the whole family was soundly asleep…

Newton, who described the event as a ‘pooptastrophe’ was so shocked that it took him a year to start speaking about the Roomba dog poop incident. “It’s taken me until now to wrap my head around it and find the words to describe the horror.”

“Do not, under any circumstances, let your Roomba run over dog poop… Because if that happens, the skid marks will be all over every conceivable surface within its reach, resulting in a home that closely resembles a Jackson Pollock poop painting.”

However, Newton was quick to defend his dog Evie, not blaming her for the whole dog poop Roomba ordeal: “This is the only time she’s done this, so it’s probably just because we forgot to let her out before we went to bed that night.” Fair enough.

Looks like this dad was not the only one to have the same problem with dog poo and robot vacuum cleaners!

The guy literally documented the exact route of the Poopmba, like a detective at a crime scene...

As funny as it might look from the outside, imagine it happened to you. I mean this is pure horror. Not that it is poo. Everyone with kids or animals had awkward situations with poo more than once. But having it all over the house... Wow. I am pretty sure it would have had taken me a year to talk about it as well. It must have taken ages to clean everything and get that smell out of the house. Can't blame the dog... I hope the dad did get in contact with the robo company and asked for a poo-emergency-stop-function for the Roomba. Not sure if they ever heard of a story like this.
