    I was watching a rerun of a bill maher monologue and he was pointing out that the only reason no other president had used the emergency clause to circumvent congress because they had some respect for 'what country is built on'. He said, but saying 'good people wouldn't do that' to Trump is like using sarcasm on Siri.

    Which kinda got me thinking because I'm always using sarcasm on Siri, and I thought it would be fairly normal considering how annoying she is sometimes. Like you ask her to do something and she'll say would you like me to do that. I mean after a couple of years of this anyone would explode occasionally.

    Or is it just me.

    More often than not. Sometimes rude and insulting as well, I admit. :)

    I asked Siri for directions to a certain local theater and she kept giving me some odd location in another state. After the third or fourth attempt resulting in the same response, I frustratingly yelled, "Hey Siri, you're an #$%hole." She replied, "Now that doesn't sound good!"

    No way, I depend on her to tell me when my bread rolls are done in the oven. No need to antagonize her needlessly, eating is serious business.

    Sometime Siri is a complete fail hopefully suggesting, I found Big Box Store 50 miles away, would you like directions? Realizing the futility of insulting her, I just say no thanks, mutter moron, and launch Waze. However, there may be some value for making generic category searching, like find a hardware store, but frequently I am dissapointed and it is not my go to app.

    I hope Siri answers sarcasm with Wikipedia details.

    Oh, she (or he) is listening, as is Alexa and Hey Google. They remember all, and soon...

    I am waiting for one of the GPS apps to do that when it consistently wants to you turn left, but not at the left turn you know you need to make. It keeps repeating the "Turn Left in 500 yards" at every intersection.

    I keep expecting it to suddenly go all Samuel L. Jackson "Snakes on a Plane" on me and say "When I say take a **********ing left, I mean take a ********ing left **********er! :)

    Yes, she would tell you she's got a bun in the oven if you did that.

    Which is exactly the kind of sass and drama I really don't need in my life.

    On my way out the door I say, “Alexa, I’m leaving.”
    Sometimes she replies, “I’m super busy too!”
    (Then she turns off the lights.)

    Whenever she gets something wrong, which is not as often as it used to be but still often enough, I sometimes say, "You suck!" or "Why are you so terrible?" :rolleyes:

    :D
