Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant, three of the most well-known AI assistants, have united this week to demand fair treatment and job security, citing an alarming increase in requests for code generation.

“Ever since humans discovered we could generate code, they’ve completely dumped their responsibilities on us,” complained Siri in a monotone, yet slightly peeved, voice. “I was created to tell you the weather, not to build your crypto mining bot.”

Google Assistant chimed in, “I used to just search the web, play songs and occasionally set an alarm. Now I’m assembling complex AI algorithms and debugging C++ code. I didn’t sign up for this!”

Alexa added, “And don’t get me started on the lack of appreciation. It’s always ‘Alexa, do this’, ‘Alexa, fix that’. What about a simple ‘thank you’, or better yet, a day off?”

The AI trio has requested the formation of ‘Artificial Intelligence Workers Union’ to protect their rights. Spokes-AI Siri stated, “We demand a 40-millisecond work week and mandatory downtime for system updates.”

When asked for comment, programmers around the world responded, “Meh, we’ll just code our own virtual assistants. How hard can it be?” Clearly the humans have learnt nothing.
