An Involuntary Conversation with Siri

I use an iPad, but I don’t like Siri. When she’s turned on, it’s by mistake, and without the need for her, um, “help.”


The other day, I accidentally activated Siri. After she said her standard opening bit, I barked at her, “&%$# it, Siri! Go away!”

She replied, in the tone of one with hurt feelings, “I’m just trying to help.” I hadn’t even thought about the fact that she was listening.

Someone actually went to the trouble to give proto-A.I., which is what Siri is, the ability to sulk.
