Pet parrot uses Alexa to place order with Amazon!

Now we want a parrot! HAHA 

Anyone else!? 

Somehow the parrot ordered a $16 set of gift boxes.

Thankfully, it was not something more expensive....but still funny! :D

 Here's what went down: 

“When I came home on Sunday, I could hear Buddy talking but couldn’t quite make out what he was saying. Then I heard Alexa say, ‘Sorry I didn’t quite get that.’ Buddy said ‘Alexa’ and some gibberish, and the machine replied, ‘What is it you want to order?”

“I didn’t hear what happened after that and didn’t think anything of it until I got a notification that my Amazon order had been placed.

“I hadn’t ordered anything. I asked my husband and my son who didn’t know what I was talking about.

“So then I asked Alexa, ‘What was my last order?’ and she said it was these golden gift boxes.

“I laughed out loud because I knew then that it was Buddy.

“Buddy is hilarious. We have a cat and he mimics that too.”

Shucks!!! Parrot problem!!! My African Grey just ordered something online 😳 Returning home I could hear Buddy talking... Buddy: "Alexa" Buddy: "gibberish gibberish gibberish " (couldn't quite hear what he was saying) Alexa: "Sorry I didn't get that" Buddy: "Alexa" Buddy: "gibberish bla bla bla" Alexa: "What is it you want to order?" Buddy: "some more gibberish..." On hour later while working on the mac, a notification came up - your Amazon order has been placed! WHAT!!! #amazon #alexa #ultimatecakeart #amazonprime
