I say please to Siri.
People question me about it. “She’s a machine, why say please?”
The usual reason we say please to others is that it acknowledges them and it respects their dignity.

The reason I say please to Siri is because it helps prevent me from becoming entitled. It reminds me to be grateful. It reminds me that time and resources are scarce.
And there’s a third…it’s good practice.

“Look before you leap.”
So, which one is it???

In life people always talk about getting ‘ahead of the curve.’

We worry about things that might not work out.
