Mom: Can you help me set up Alexa?
Me: No, I don’t have time or the technical know-how for that.
Mom: Fine, I’ll call Amazon.
(Proceeds to call Amazon, can’t figure it out, so of course, calls me up from my work and makes me deal with the guy and set up Alexa)
Me to Amazon Guy: Ok we got it, thanks for your help. I’m going to hang up now. (hands the iPhone back to Mom to hang up)
Then the tomfoolery began.
Me: You better put the Dirty Dancing soundtrack on to make up for that.
Mom to Alexa: Alexa, play the Dirty Dancing soundtrack.
Alexa: “I had the Time of my Life…”
(Mom proceeds to turn the TV on and start watching it while Dirty Dancing is playing)
Me: So, now you’re going to watch TV and not even listen to music after all that? I literally didn’t have time for this today, you better be listening to music all freaking day long!
Me to Alexa: Alexa, annoy my Mom.
Alexa: Now playing “annoy my Mom”: Mom. Mom. Mom. Mommy. Mommy. Momma. Momma. Momma. Please rate “Annoy your Mom” on a scale of 1 to 5.
This all goes on for about 5 minutes and my Mom and I (and Alexa) are just ripping on each other back and forth and killing ourselves laughing.
Amazon guy chimes in from the phone: “Hello? Hello? Hello?”
Me and My Mom: He’s still THERE?
Me to Amazon Guy: You HEARD all that?
Amazon Guy: Yup, have a great day!
