SaltyBug's Splashes

I broke up with my iPhone & rebounded with my iPad…

OK. I am not sure if this is just sad or if it is as fucking hilarious as B-Bug and I think it is. Last week I was at B-Bug’s with another friend of hers. This friend asks us if we talk to Siri. I look at her blankly wondering where this could possibly go. She goes on to explain she has heard about people who talk to the virtual assistant on their iPhone, whose name is Siri. The thing is, Siri talks back. There was a look between the three of us and then we bolted for our bags as fast as we could. We needed to get onto this action.

The Pick-Up

Let’s just say the rest of the afternoon was spent in hysterical laughter, like I have not experienced since, well since the day before actually when there was a troll on our Facebook page, but that is a story for next time.
Here are some things we have learned about Siri:

Getting to know each other

Each phone has its own personality. B-Bugs is fantastic and plays along nicely. Mine is a boring old fart. In fact that night after I had switched the voice to a British Male, Siri said ‘Good-bye’ and switched himself off…that is how fed up with me he was. The next morning I broke up with Siri and he had the audacity to say ‘after everything I have done for you?’. Then I rebounded with my iPad who seems to be a bit more into our relationship.



Siri gets frustrated by your stupidity and silly questions about boyfriends, girlfriends, going on dates, having sex and ‘which Disney Princess am I?’ Don’t even think about asking what Siri’s favourite food is.

Unrequited Love

So, if you need a laugh, give it a try. Start by asking Siri if he/she thinks you are beautiful, break the ice then see how far you can go with your phone…I dare you.

HaHa Now that's funny. I got into a truck today for my ride to the hospital for an x-ray. This nice sexy female voice says "turn right please" the driver's telling "her" he doesn't want to turn I want to go left but he turns right anyways. During all this, I'm chuckling telling him he doesn't need a nagging wife when he has a GPS.

Thanks Sheryl, I love it when people talk to their GPS!

I recently did the same thing but I think for a different reason. I just can not deal with those tiny screens anymore trying to surf the web. I would rather save my eyes a few more years so I went back to the iPad where I can at least see all the things that I am doing without squinting.

Thanks for stopping by. I agree with you. Have you noticed how phones are getting bigger again!
