Siri and Me

So, I got an iPhone 4s a month or so ago from my work.  I was so EXCITED.  And one of the things I was the most excited about was having access to Siri, my very own personal assistant.

HOWEVER.  Siri and I are having a bit of a personality conflict.

(It's not me, it's her.)

Like the other day, when I tried to call my parents.

Siri:  What can I help you with?

Me:  Call Mom and Dad.  (This is how I have my parents' home phone listed in my contacts - MomandDad.)

Siri:  Which mom?  Mom or Mom and Dad?  (Mom is my mom's cell phone.)

Me:  Mom and Dad.

Siri:  Which mom?  Mobile or work?

Me:  No, I said Mom and Dad.

Siri:  Okay, Megan.  Calling Mom, mobile.

Me:  NO!  (I hang up and try again.)

Siri:  What can I help you with?

Me:  Call Mom and Dad.

Siri:  Which mom?  Mom or Mom and Dad?

Me:  Mom and Dad.

Siri:  Would you like me to remember that Mom and Dad is your mother?

Me:  Uh, yes.

Siri:  Got it, Megan.  Mom and Dad is your mother.

Me:  Great.  Call my mother.

Siri:  Which mother?  Mom or Mom and Dad?

Me:  Oh.My.God.

Siri:  I don't see "God" in your address book.  Should I look for businesses by that name?

I think I might need to fire her.

Megan, you KILL me. LOL

This sounds like a conversation I have with any number of customer service reps. At the end I'm ready to stab something in my eye...

We got an XBOX kinect for Christmas and you can talk to it rather than use the remote! Problem, it only listens if I yell. Pretty much like the rest of the kids I guess.

Have you seen the Siri Argument video...pretty good stuff. Oh, Siri. :)

Jen said...

Ha! This would totally be me if I ever get my hands on an iPhone.

Kmama said...

LOL!! I'm kinda glad I don't have Siri on my iPhone. I would be wanting to kill her.

Katherine said...

I would have fired her already. I've been watching my friends with Siri, and it's actually quite hilarious.

Barbara Manatee said...

bwahahahaha! I'm surprised your phone is still in 1 piece after that!

Loved the God part!! ha!

Suze said...

LMAO! I can so relate! I just got my iPhone a month ago, and when I use Siri to call anyone, it always gives me a different person than I asked for! I don't bother to use it now...Siri is as annoying as my Garmin direction lady who somehow gets that annoyed tone when she says "recalculating" for the upteenth time too!

haha Makes me sorry I don't have an iPhone 4. Or not... ;)

Krystyn @ Really, Are You Serious? said...

Kind of defeats the purpose, no? But, it's pretty dang funny:)

Agnes said...

I bet it was irritating beyond belief but it's pretty damn funny!

I live in the technological dark ages...and I rarely watch TV...but, thanks to DVRing The Big Bang Theory, I can actually participate in this blog conversation!

(The DVR is one technological advancement I am relatively well-versed in.)

Did you see Thursday's episode? Raj had fallen in love with Siri.

Doesn't sound like you're there quite yet.

I'm with you...she's not as helpful as she seems.

I love when a post from you pops up. It seriously makes my day!
