First let me get this right out into the open. I love my Iphone 4S. It helps me do hundreds of things every day. It allows me to check my email whenever and wherever. It makes available hundreds if apps.
It even comes with a little person trapped inside. Her name is Siri and you can ask her all sorts of things and she will attempt an answer. The only problem is that my particular Siri is 16 years old and doesn’t understand my English.
I’ve tried, honestly I have, to pronounce my words clearly and enunciate each syllable directly into the phone. Still, I find that Siri has a wicked sense of humor and much like an angst-ridden teenager; she hears what she wants to hear.
Example of an actual conversation…
Me: “Text Jen, it’s ok.”
Siri: “Yes it is.”
Me: “Well thanks for your feedback but I really wanted to let her know that.”
Siri: “I found two post offices fairly close to you.”
Me: “But I don’t want to mail it to her.”
Siri: “To whom shall I send it?”
Me: “Never mind.”
Last week I was running late on my way home. So I decided to give my husband a call to let him know. Since I can’t dial while driving I figured I would just ask Siri to do it. I pronounced his name as clearly as I could. She told me she was calling my sister-in-law in Florida.
“No”, I screamed.
I repeated my husband’s name. She was mum. I repeated it again—still mum. Guess she got mad at me for yelling at her. I could have sworn I heard a door slam in the distance.
