Hey, Alyssa!

From my room, I heard Dad talking to someone. I thought maybe my son had come by and I didn’t hear the door, but Dad’s voice was the only one I heard. Maybe he’s talking to one of the cats, I thought. It sounded like he was getting a bit irritated, though so I figured I’d best go investigate.

I’m in the kitchen now, stopped in my tracks because of what I am witnessing. Here’s how it went.

“Alyssa, turn off that alarm.”

“Dammit, Alyssa! Stop it!”

“Goddam….expletive, expletive!”

“Hey, Alyssa! STOP!”

I walked into the living room and said, “Alexa, stop.” The alarm stopped. Dad looked puzzled at first and then said as he laughed, “I was calling it Alyssa!” I said, “I know, Dad. It’s ok.” I couldn’t help but laugh as I left the room. He doesn’t know I heard him from the kitchen.

We’ve only had the Echo Dot since Christmas Eve; a gift from my son and daughter-in-law. I’m still getting the hang of things too, but I think Dad is going to need a little extra time.

  1. Omg! This is hilarious! Dad calling the Alexa Alyssa, like my dad saying the movie Hone Alone, Hole Ahone, because he cants say Home Alone. Okay he can but he prefers it the other way, lol.

    Btw, Alyssa is the name of my brothers ingrate bitch of a daughter, ugh….lol.

  2. I can just picture that. We have two lights in the living room that are Echo-controlled. It took forever for Bill to realize that my reading lamp was ‘lamp’ and his was ‘light.’ There were a few exasperated commands and flashing of lights, but I think he’s got the hang of it now. Haha
