Smart, laugh-out-loud short fiction. I read this story as part of The Robot Chronicles and loved it. If you've seen The Jetsons or Star Wars, you've probably wondered what it would be like to live with an intelligent robot. PIA demonstrates both the benefits and the (embarrassing) pitfalls of being under a robot's care 24/7, especially if that robot starts to care a little too much.

A robot house makes a fool of herself. About 7,500 words or a 40 minute read.

Honestly, if I didn't like robots, and robot-point-of-view so much, I'd give it three stars.
I see some of the other reviewers found it funny, but it just seemed rather awkward to me.
It doesn't make any sense to me why the automated house's supervisor would give it such dreadful advice.

Honestly I found it rather sad, as now that automated house has pretty much signed its death warrant.
