Do you find yourself saying please and thank you to Alexa/Siri? DH laughs at me but I can't help it. Good manners are ingrained in me even to AI.

I tell her to be quiet like I do to the sat nav woman.

My husband says goodnight Alexa. Alexa says night night don’t let the bed bugs bite. Honestly.

Me too and if you say Good Morning to her she tells you a fact for the day grin

I love Siri! He's so polite and coy when you say thank you Siri!

I said Goodnight to her and she said 'Goodnight, talk to you tomorrow'.

Not unless I talk to you first grin

DH was grouching because Alexa kept telling him about BBC Sounds before playing Radio 2. So she announced she was giving him a fart sound, did, then asked if he’d like another. grin

He did call her a cheeky mare, but they’ve made up since.

I always say 'thankyou' - don't want to let my own standards slip even if I am talking to a machine. I'm just as grateful for the information as I would be had a human supplied it.

She always replies. smile
