Alarm skill recognising manners

Hi all! Not a bug, so much as looking for advice/discussion.
I’m using the alarm skill, and noticed that when I use my manners, it sometimes recognises the words as part of the command.
For example, I say ‘Hey Mycroft, can you set a timer for five minutes please’ he’ll respond
“I have set a timer for five minutes please” or something to that effect.

I’ve had a look through the alarm skill, but it’s beyond my python skills, and some of the function calls look redundant or replaced by newer versions (take that with a grain of salt, though. I’m no expert).

Any advice or help?
