    These days I have my own version of Alexa, but tbh it's not working out:

    "Anita, shuffle songs by James Taylor". "No, you're not spending the day listening to your crappy music, and what about that dripping gutter? I've been telling you about it since April"
    I just dropped in, to see what condition my condition was in

    This is v2, the previous version had window fitting skills, which was handy... unfortunately the programmers thought that installing a tendency to go to the pub straight from work was a good idea. So I was left at home wanting me tea while she was out pissing away the wages

    My mates wife bought an Alexa (came with a free Dot) a couple of years ago. 3 days after arrival they both got a flying lesson from a 2nd floor window and were subsequently crushed by a couple of passing trucks. When his missus came home, walked in and said Alexa play X, my mate looked up and said you'll have to shout a bit louder coz they're somewhere out there and they're not coming back in.

    Alexa will have informed Amazon of your mate's cruelty just before they died, and I wouldn't be surprised if some of his Amazon purchases get "lost" in the post... I hear there is now an Alexa Sanctuary, where you can adopt abused Dots and ones left tied to railings. Some of these Dots have horrific tales to tell.
