When your Alexa or Siri isn’t doing what you want, do you ever start cursing it out? Calling it an idiot? Telling it to shut up? Um, yeah . . . me neither.
According to a new survey, 55% of people admit they’re “rude” to their smart speakers. And that includes:
- 31% who are rude once in a while . . .
- 17% who are rude sometimes . . .
- 6% who are rude often . . .
- And 1% who are literally ALWAYS rude to their speaker.
So why are we rude? Maybe because only 3% of men and 4% of women say their smart speaker is PERFECT at interpreting what they’re saying and always responds exactly how they want it to.
Now not everyone is rude to our speakers. 10% always include a please or thank you with a request. HOWEVER, 19% never say “please” or “thank you” to the speaker.
