An unexpected Christmas gift.

What a surprise that would have been…

My son turned 14 the other day and he had 7 of his friends over for a sleep over after a trip to the movies and for something to eat.   I know, I know, at this point you are already probably shaking your head because yes you are right, it was a bloody stupid idea.

To be fair to them they are a pretty nice bunch of lads but that said they are still 14 year old boys and therefore also a huge pain in the arse.  As expected they were loud, they smelled awful and they all think they are most funny when they are not.  Even when they were still pissing about at 2 in the morning it was kind of expected so for the most part I just let them be.

The next morning though there was a rather unexpected surprise when I went into my Amazon account to order a last minute Christmas gift.  Seems they had been using the Amazon Alexa search and order functionality to pick up some last minute Christmas gifts themselves.

Below is just part of the Alexa search history and the item I found awaiting my check out.

Well at least the wife says it was them…

Such thoughtful boys…

  1. Lol…yep, sounds about right. A few months ago my son’s friends found a teacher had left his Amazon account open (yes, he’s foolish enough to have one-click ordering on) and they were kind enough to order him a giant dildo. Many of the boys my son knows are fascinated by them lol.

  2. You know, you could have had a lot of fun pretending that you were actually ordering it. I can just imagine the stories you could come up with. I’ll bet your wife would play along, too. Of course, we would all have to chip in for their therapy but it would make a great post!
