Do you thank your digital slave?

Asked by elbanditoroso (24438points) 2 weeks ago

Google Home, Alexa, whatever ..

When you give the device a command and it complies, do you say “thank you”?

I have my Google Home to turn out some lamps when I say “OK Google, turn off living room lights” – and recently I have caught myself saying thanks to GH when the lights go out (just like I would if a human turned off the lights).

Am I the only one? Am I crazy?

Yes. When the robot overlords take power, I’m hoping that they note how polite and pleasant I was.

No, I don’t thank Alexa. But I do say please.

Yes. I often catch myself and laugh, but I can’t help being polite. It’s how I was raised.

I do not talk to my devices. Every time I try, I feel like a cock.

Ain’t got one, ever what that is…

I have no such devices, but I have a service I call frequently which is fully automated, and I sometimes thank “him”. It confuses the darn thing and starts over on the menu.
