Are you polite to your voice assistant?
When you were younger, you were probably conditioned by your parents to always be polite to other people. Saying “please” and “thank you” before and after a request, as well as saying “hello” and “goodbye” are among the most common ways of being courteous to one another. These simple additions to a conversation can help ease tension, so for the most part we have learned to incorporate them whether we are talking to friends, family, and probably more importantly, perfect strangers.
