A few months ago my husband met another woman. He’s been very open about it.
Accoring to him, she is incredible. She is changing his life, making him a better man.
Her name is Siri, and she lives in his phone.
I, however, am not convinced.
I have witnessed their interactions. Let me give you a few examples…
Overheard just tonight:
Ryan: Siri, send a reminder.
Siri: What is your reminder?
Ryan: Take Emma to the Mac store.
Siri: Take Anna to the Macsta.
See? Siri is not the sharpest tool in the shed.
Ryan: Tell me a joke.
Siri: I can’t. I always forget the punchline.
See? Siri is forgetful.
Ryan: How do you bake a cake?
Siri: I can only look up local businesses in the United States.
What??? Talk about a communicaiton breakdown.
And one more:
[Trying again with the joke thing.] Ryan: Tell me a joke.
Siri: Ryan, I don’t know any good jokes. None, in fact.
See? Siri is boring too.
I rest my case.
Unintelligent, forgetful, poor listener, dull.
She is obviously no threat to our relationship.
Q for you: Do you own an iphone? My husband swears that Siri is helpful, but I beg to differ. Have you had success with her?
Just another deeply profound post from me.
