Scene: Roomba is cleaning the floor.

Liam (3): Outta my way!
Lillian (5): Liam! In this house we are polite to robots! *addresses Roomba* We are obliged for your continued efforts on our behalf. *bows* Liam say sorry to Roomba-kun.
Liam: Sowwy.
Got to find some Etsy-type artist to do a "In this house we are polite to robots." needlecraft...
(I non-ironically care about this, for much the same reason that I care about how people treat animals that normally don't have all that much ethical weight. I don't care about the Roomba per se, I care about the default regard for someone sweeping a floor.)
