MightyJoe Shops, No REALLY it worked this time

Up to this point, I've shared the Alexa shopping list. Remember, these lists doesn't really go anywhere. It just creates a shopping list on my Amazon account. In no way will I ever buy anything from MightyJoe's list. Poopy poop poop poop? Are you kidding me?

However, we've discovered other weaknesses in our defenses. Do you remember a post I did previously about the AppleTV remote? I mentioned that Joe has a fondness for remote controls and hiding them. 

Since we moved into our new home, we installed X-Finity cable television and they gave us a smart remote. You can speak your commands into the remote and through voice activation it searches for whatever you ask.

NOTE: THIS IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR A SPECIAL NEEDS BOY WHO IS ALREADY BRAIN PROGRAMMED TO BE A LITTLE SNEAKY!

As it turns out, MightyJoe, who is smarter than he ever gets credit for, has learned how to use this remote control like a champ!

A few things to note:
1. When you see On Demand purchase like this, you realize there can only be one culprit.
2. Newest house rule: Joe may not hold a remote control.
3. We now own On Demand access to four great episodes of Peppa Pig. (One episode was purchased twice).

Yes, XFinity was kind enough to reverse the charges. 

Quietly making noise,
Fletch
