Please And Thank You (MM #3884)

The Mason Minute


The mason minute. With Kevin mason. I was reading an interesting story the other day about people suggesting we say please and thank you when talking with our personal assistants. You know our Google Assistant are Amazon Alexa because it teaches good manners especially to children. I'll be honest with you, I'd never thought about it. It's a machine. I'm not talking to a human being. There's nothing to be courteous too. It's a machine. It doesn't know any better. I don't use please and thank you. Never even thought of using please and thank you. And it's very interesting to think about, do we need to start doing that? Especially when around kids because manners and courtesy are very important and obviously our world has a problem with that right now. About being courteous about respecting others, I guess Google and Amazon could have suggested we do that. They could have rewarded us for doing that, but they don't. I don't think they ever thought about it either. But it's an interesting thought process. It came out of England first and it's starting to spread across the world. Should we start saying please and thank you to our personal assistants, even though they're just machines, something definitely worth thinking about, because manners are sorely lacking these days
