Asking Siri to add a reminder to a specific list at a specific time
I'm having trouble with the wording to get Siri to do something that should be simple.
I can add a reminder at a specific time and it defaults to a project specific reminders list rather than the one called reminders.
I can add a reminder to a specific list by naming the list
I can't add it to a specific list and specify a time as it then adds it to the calendar, not the reminders
So how do I phrase this to get it to work:
add 'feed the fish' to my 'reminders' reminders list for 10am tomorrow.
Alternatively, can I set a default reminders list, the one it picked is completely random, it's not the original iPhone one, it's not the newest, it's not the oldest, it's not the last one I used, it's not first or last alphabetically, but Siri insists on putting all reminders on it.
Thanks in advance.

For me I do it as a two step process. I need to order some medicine for my dogs today. I have three lists in Reminders: Tasks (which is synced from my work exchange account), Personal, and Pets. My default list is Personal.
So I say to Siri: "Remind me at 9:30 to order medicine."
Siri: "Ok, here's your reminder for 9:30 AM. Shall I create it?", and the reminder is displayed.
Me: "Put it on my pets list"
Siri: "Ok, I can add this to your 'Pets' list in Reminders. Shall I create it?", and the reminder is displayed again.
Siri: "Ok, I'll remind you."
After this I now have a reminder on my Pets list for 9:30 AM today which says "Order medicine."

Can you add multiple bullet items on the grocery list, instead of just one item at a time?
