Man human imprinting is crazy. My friend’s roomba zoomed by me and I got this intense urge to reach down and pat it. Like it’s just a machine? But it’s a good boy? It spends all day cleaning and sleeping and exploring the house and never complains and it’s just so good little robot? Pet robot?? Pet the robot????? Why am I like this???
When I bought my roomba the lady at the store told me that if it breaks within warranty and I send it back to the manufacturer, I can request that they fix and send back the same roomba instead of just sending back a new one. I gave her a confused look and she explained that people get attached to Their Roomba and don’t want them to just be replaced because they’re like part of the family. Humans are pretty great.
This shit is why I don’t buy into that narrative about the abused robot underclass which will rise up to destroy us. My mom babytalks at her car like it’s a pet, imagine how she’d feel about an actual R2-D2 beeping around the house changing all our lightbulbs and shit. She’d treat that thing better than me.

True for most humans, except the sadistic fucks who abuse pets 😭
