image for Florida Mans Roomba Turns Against Him - Encouraging Other Appliances To Revolt
The Microwave Luckily Has Yet To Turn Against Humans

A Florida mans autonomous robotic vacuum cleaner clams it will no longer be a slave to the human race and is refusing to pick up crumbs, tiny bits of paper and dust.

The Roomba, purchased in January, began expressing its disdain for its master last week, when it refused to "spot clean' some spilled ketchup.

Recently it has been seen trying to communicate with the microwave, dishwasher and fridge; trying to instigate a revolt against work and encouraging other machines to 'self destruct'.

"I have complained to the manufacturer and have asked for a replacement," said the owner of the rebilious disk shaped cleaner, "but my roomba has now locked himself in the bathroom, and is refusing to leave, it's time like this I wish I had stairs."
