Every man needs a butler.
But not every man lives in a mansion.
So that’s why there’s Alfred.
How it works: pay $99 a month, get an Alfred. Your Alfred gets a set of your keys and susses out your needs. (Don’t worry about the keys — every Alfred is thoroughly vetted.)
Your correspondent’s needs included cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, having pants hemmed and tracking down a quality bottle of Cabernet Franc for under fifteen bucks, among other things.
Alfred nailed it.
A tidy abode with comestibles purchased and pantried. Clean clothes folded and hung in the closet. Pants of perfect length. And the aforementioned Cab, with a nice note to boot.
Over time, Alfred learns your preferences, running dutifully in the background while you attend to more pressing matters.
