A Woman Gets a Surprise Amazon Package . . . Turns Out Her Parrot Ordered It Using Alexa

A 39-year-old woman named Corienne Pretorius from London recently got a random package from Amazon:  A $13 pack of gift boxes.  She hadn’t ordered it and had no idea how it wound up at her house.

But after she investigated, she finally figured it out:  Her PARROT did it.  Corienne has an Amazon Echo at home, and her parrot mimicked her saying, “Alexa” and then giving a command.

And whatever he said somehow wound up making Alexa think he was trying to order a package of gift boxes.

Amazon says that anything you order with Alexa has free returns . . . so Corienne isn’t stuck with the boxes.
