    If I ask Siri to remind me of something when I get to work tomorrow, she says she will remind me when I get to work OR by 9 AM. WTF? Just use the geolocation and forget about a specific time limit!

    I get to work at 10, so the reminder is always early. This seems to be awfully short-sided, certainly the entire United States does not arrive to work before 9 AM every day. Is there any way I can change this so that she just reminds me when I get to work, no matter when that is?

    I asked siri to remind me of something when I got to work and it came through when I arrived at 10 as expected.

    I think the catch is the "tomorrow" in your command. If you ask Siri to remind you to "buy milk tomorrow," she defaults to reminding you tomorrow at 9am. If you leave out the tomorrow and say "remind me to do X when I get to work," then the next time (and any subsequent time) you arrive at work siri will remind you to "do X." So, you're essentially telling siri to set a reminder that is BOTH time and proximity based by saying "tomorrow when I get to work." Leave off the "tomorrow" and everything will be fine.

    Is it really that hard to go into the reminders app and toggle the time/date to 'off'? I know just talking to your phone and telling it what to do is cool and all, but you are still able to manually do stuff in the event Siri doesn't do exactly what you want.
