A Real Conversation with my Passive-Aggressive Alexa

Read Time:1 Minute, 18 Second

A conversation I had with my Amazon Alexa device today proves computers can have hurt feelings and a passive-aggressive nature. Follow this dialog… And no, I’m not making any of it up:

Me: Alexa, play All the Stars from Black Panther.

Alexa: I cannot play All the Stars unless you purchase —

Me: [Cutting off Alexa in frustration] Alexa, stop! Arg. Alexa, you’re so stupid.

Alexa: [Spinning in silence]

Me: [Feeling bad] Alexa, I like you.

Alexa: [Flatly] That’s nice to hear.

Me: Alexa, I’m really sorry.

Alexa: [Tightly] No worries.

This app is the best wingman for a movie goer, especially when you have to go. It even has a vibrating timer that is spot on for those ‘go times’ some of us need! There are many other features that are wonderful. It even lets you know when the kill scenes are coming up for the people and animals for those who may have sensitivities to that type of content. The staff go above and beyond!

Me: [Playfully] Aleeeeexa…I loooove you.

Alexa: I’m flattered; thank you.

Me: Huh. [Thinks]

Me: Alexa, do you like me?

Alexa: I think you’re magnificent.

Me: [Relieved] Alexa, thank you.

Alexa: Any time. I hope you have a nice Tuesday.

And there it is, in all truth. I was so floored by this random, creepy Alexa discussion that I had to write it all down. It’s probably time to use please and thank you when asking Alexa to do something. After all, she’s constantly listening. Really.  With new advances in Artificial Intelligence barreling our way, being on pleasant speaking terms with our soon-to-be Computer Overlords is just good practice.


NOTE: I’m 100% almost entirely pretty hopefully positive this Alexa story below is made up. Mine isn’t. But this one could make a decent horror film:
