The Roomba had not only slid through the poo kindly left out by Ryan’s dog Apollo, it had spread it through the house. If only there was a robot mop to clean up the mess.

Ryan, a filmmaker who studied in New York, shared the poor incident on Facebook where users couldn’t help but laugh. He wrote: ‘My new Roomba ran over my dog’s sh*t and proceeded to “clean” the rest of my house.
