For robots, sometimes life is made harder by lazy humans.
E.g. You want to clean the floor but the humans keep
clothing on the floor.
So the roomba if its about to clean, or is cleaning and found
it's job being obstructed by humans, would be able to send
complaint to the owner
to encourage the owner to make
robot's life easier.

||How about a gently flashing light on the robot which then
tells you what it needs you to do. For a roomba "pick up
pants", for a cooking robot "out of lentils" Seems better than
an email alert.
||What about a photon torpedo ?
||Dalek/Roomba Hybrid: "Beeep, beeep"
||Human: "Huh ? Ahhhch, shaddup .."
||Dalek/Roomba Hybrid: "ZAPPPPPPP ! "
||Human: <faint sound of cooling charred remains>
||Give a Roomba a slightly more powerful motor / brush assembly, and
it can clear any awkward humans out of its way as it proceeds, using
the same mechanism it uses for its daily job.
