Why I Hate Siri: She don’t understand me


I have a real problem with siri.

I feel that somewhere along the line, either myself, or one of my kids must have said something to offend her, because she’s held a grudge for as long as I can remember.

My rationale?

I’m not hearing a tone in her voice or anything like that, but I’m in the car a lot, and when I need to send myself a note, I summon Siri, and have her email me the note.  Usually these notes are trivial, like potential blog posts, or rants, however sometimes they are important.

Here is a recent message that I asked Siri to email to me while I was driving;

Things you must do today or else you will be hungry by your testicles

Contact Golddust at Nyack to let her know that my son is a big boy and the kids in his class are three girls babies to make jokes about seven-year-old kids like their dinosaurs so he needs a class that is either on Saturdays or where the kids at least talk to his armpits as well you have to contact Holt Renfrew and ask them what to do with the dress which is been torn to shreds from being in the closet or possibly just fell apart on wearing the first time because that is the cast you need to do prior to me leaving on my excursion in the next couple of days and I’m going to run over somebody is walking really slowly on the crosswalk by pick you up Savannah

WTF?!?

How does this help me?

None of this makes any sense, or reminds me to do anything… I have no idea what I was trying to say, or follow up on, nor will I ever know.

As an aside, since I detest siri so much now, I use the Australian Siri because at the very least I get to hear her awesome accent.

What’s your experiences like with Siri?
