Voice to text failure: you decide what I buy! (1 Viewer)

My wife and I use Amazon Alexa shopping lists.  We tell it what to put on and it does and then whoever ends up at the store buys it.  However, due to voice to text limitations, sometimes the wrong thing goes on because it doesn’t understand what my wife says and she doesn’t bother to hear it read it back. 

My wife is unreachable right now, I’m at the grocery store, and I have everything except “maid’s tail.”  I have no idea what she could have said that would sound like “maid’s tail.”

Most likely suggestion is what I’ll buy.  Happy Mardi Gras.

Try this and bon chance.

A maid's tail - she wants you to bring home a hooker, if I'm going to dissect the code language. Congrats, it's your lucky day!

 
I appreciate the thought.... I have four echos in my house and this was put on the list sometime in the last month because I usually forget to look at the list. There’s no way I’m going to find that recording.  

Besides, this is more fun. 

 
Go to that paltry book/periodical aisle they have at the grocery. It's often where all the greeting cards are.

See if they are selling Margaret Atwood's THE HANDMAID'S TALE.

Win.

Just after I typed that, I realized that Alexis Bledel starred on the Hulu series THE HANDMAID'S TALE. Perhaps Alexa misheard a conversation about it and triggered at the mention of the name "Alexis" and recorded "maids tail"?

Oh, that’s very likely. You’re good. She’s watching the Handmaid’s Tale right now on Hulu.

Then clearly it only picked up the last part of what she said: "75-inch 4K TV to watch The Handmaid's Tale"

This suggests that “cat girl maid erotica” is a category.  I’m concerned about that. 
Not just cat girl maid erotica - there is likely subcategories within cat girl maid erotica - calico vs maine vs manga vs Selina Kyle. 

 
haven't read the thread, just assumed that's probably also the reason for all the first-time maid humiliation erotica that's being discussed

 
Update:

WE HAVE DISCOVERED WHAT SHE WANTED.

While drinking just a tiny bit one night, my wife asked Alexa to put on the list "homeMADE PAELLA."  Because, naturally, that would be how you would list the entirety of the ingredients necessary to make a dish I have never made in my life.

Many thanks to all who participated, and to Don Facundo Bacardí Massó for making this thread possible.

Wait.  How do you buy homemade stuff?  Seems like an odd paradox.

Also, are you sure it wasn't a PS4?

She has a tendency to list things like "Avgolemno soup" (which comes out "of the limo soup.")  Which means I actually need to check the fridge and cabinets to see if we have Orzo, eggs, lemons, chicken, and chicken stock, and whatever isn't there I need to get.  I believe she was trying to make sure I didn't buy some "paella mix" or pre-made frozen paella.

Apparently that was shorthand for:

lemons

chicken stock

chicken

sausage

shrimp

clams

rice

saffron

bell pepper

onion

parsley
