I don?t know about you, but every time I watch those Apple Siri commercials with Zoey Deschanel I want to scream! In cute, adorable Zoey?s commercial, she asks Siri about the weather, ?Is that rain?? ?Let?s order tomato soup.?
?Okay, I found a few places that deliver.?
?Play me shake rattle and roll.?
I have an iPhone 4S. And these commercials are fake advertising! And as soon as I am done getting my kids’ stuff ready for camp, I have every intention of starting a petition.
I think I am so angry at Siri because I realize that she communicates with me like my husband does. Like probably a lot of guys do with their wives. I am not sure if I should take Scott?s communication skills personally, or just accept that this is the way guys talk. There have been a lot of studies about how different men and women are. We are talkers, they are avoiders. I actually think, correct that, I know, that Scott will opt to agree with me rather than have a whole discussion about something. It?s like he is thinking, ?If I say ?okay? to Jen, that is only one word I need to use. I am going with ?okay?. It?s quick, it?s clean, and nobody gets hurt.? I know his game, and I play too? in other ways. It?s quick, it?s clean, you get in, you get out, and nobody gets hurt. But there are times where I would enjoy a little back and forth.
The majority of the time it goes something like this:
I will try to talk to him about an issue from my day:
Scott/Siri ?I don?t know what you are saying right now.?
?Scott, we need to take care of a few things for the kids.
Scott/Siri ?Please try later, I am unable to help you now.?
?Scott, Do you think I look fat in this??
Scott/Siri ?I really couldn?t say, Jen.?
?Scott, how does your Mom feel about me??
Scott/Siri ?I would prefer not to say.?
No cute Zoey/Siri banter here. What to do? I suppose Scott and I could work on our communication skills. I could give Scott a mandatory minimum word count. I could phrase my questions so that they don?t seem so naggy. There is hope for us. For all of us.
As for me and Siri, I don?t think she will ever find me a place that delivers a good Lentil soup.
