Get swatted, cops shoot your dog, toss a flash bang into your baby's crib, and scare the crap out of everyone in the family? Grand Jury decides we're cool, no cops get prosecuted.
Get 911'd, cops look into it, figure there's a good chance it's a hoax, turns out it's not a hoax. Layers sue for millions and win.

The place I was renting was WW2 era housing, a group of rectangular buildings next to each other, each with 8 apts (think | | | | | |). I had the upper unit in the back, turns out my key worked on *every* upper back unit in each building. Talked to one of my neighbors, his key also worked in every building that corresponded to his unit.
Trust me, we all had new locks within 24 hours.

A robot chef would end up on ebay pretty much immediately, I enjoy cooking. My robot of choice would be one that would dust and vacuum. I farking hate doing those.
Every other month or so I need something like fish sauce, olive oil, etc, and then they can track me wandering aimlessly down the aisles, if they had microphones they'd hear me muttering "dammit, why don't they label the aisles better" and "dammit, where's the damned kimchi"
Staples like tomato sauce, chicken stock, etc are bought a couple times a year at Costco.
