speaking of calming - you know how some people eat when they are upset? maybe getting a bit of a charge has the same effect on a 'bot. notice how calm and even meditative she is in the last panel.

Considering she's supposed to be someone's property, I actually find it perfectly reasonable to assume that she has little social programming when it comes to taking care of herself, seeking the fulfillment of her own needs, or acting on her own. She's meant to be on someone else's arm. She's not meant to have a life of her own outside of her time spent with that someone, and it's probably supposed to be up to that someone else whether a fembot gets recharged or not at all.

I get incredibly cranky when I'm hungry. I can see myself going Claws metaphorically if someone steps in my path of food.

That sounds pretty reasonable. I guess I was just giving the original fembot-creators too much credit.

Maybe they didn't think anyone would ever educate a bot or take one into the Reality Zone.
