    When Alexa successfully completes a task, I often follow up by saying "Thank You". In a perfect world, Alexa would follow up with, "You're welcome!"

    But she doesn't.

    To my surprise I'm not the only one requesting this feature!

    I would try building this feature myself but since it's part of Alexa's core code and not a separate skill it cannot be adjusted. I was hoping to create a skill called "Mind Your Manners" that would put Alexa in a "polite" mode of sorts and adjust her responses to incorporate good etiquette a la Emily Post. What a bummer.

    Anyone have any ideas on how this could be achieved? Or maybe how a separate skill could approach this? Or maybe we just need to tweet incessantly to @AlexaDevs pestering them to please add this option.

    Okay, okay... not pester incessantly. Ask politely over and over.
