Man’s Roomba Runs Over Dog Poop, Spreads It All Over Home

As time passes, humans have come up with all sorts of inventions to make life more convenient. We’ve come so far and simplified so many things. But what happens when something that’s supposed to be fast and convenient ends up making things worse and becomes time consuming? That’s exactly what happened to one poor family and a “poopy” Roomba mishap.  

Jesse Newton from Little Rock, Arizona, posted to Facebook in August about the horrible situation involving his Roomba and their dog. In the middle of the night, when the Roomba was set to vacuum the house, it somehow managed to run over dog poop and then proceeded to drag it throughout the house.


“If the unthinkable does happen, and your Roomba runs over dog poop, stop it immediately and do not let it continue the cleaning cycle…” wrote Newton who wasn’t so lucky. Roomba’s are designed to vacuum the floors and get into every nook and cranny, and that’s exactly what it did except this time it was smearing a trail of stinky stuff all over the house.

While it may be convenient to run the Roomba at night when everyone is sleeping and out of the way, Newton wasn’t lucky enough to catch the accident. “And so begins the Pooptastrophe. The poohpocalypse. The pooppening,” Newton wrote as he explained the long cleanup process.
