Too funny. We’re having a similar experience. My children like to ask her ridiculous questions that she can’t possibly answer. And, for some reason, they believe that steadily increasing the volume of their question will eventually result in a correct answer. I frequently find myself saying to them; “Stop shouting at Alexa.”

It is interesting to note the generational differences. I catch myself saying “Thank you” to Alexa after she completes some request, and then feeling a bit foolish. But, your point is interesting. I wouldn’t mind a setting that required a polite question and response. Hmmm…
