In an effort to make the iPhone more accessible for women, Apple has now created several different age ranges for their personal assistant named Siri. If she’s experiencing a similar life cycle event as the user, Apple theorizes that she’ll be more relatable during the communication of commands. Or she can just lend more women a compassionate ear.
I put this new Siri to the test today.
The Dating Siri
Me: Siri, what should I look for in a male partner?
Siri: A Big Mac that lets you sit on his laptop.
Me: Siri, what do you personally wear on a first date?
Siri: A top with fringe.
Siri: Didn’t you see Oklahoma? “The surrey with the fringe on top.” LOL
Me: Ugh. I hope you don’t list “great sense of humor” on your match.com profile. So….Suri, should I go to bed with a guy on the first date?
Siri: Only if he puts you in sleep mode first.
Me: Oh dear Siri, the man I was seeing just ditched me at the restaurant. Please call me a Taxi.
Siri: Okay, from now on I will call you, “A Taxi.”
The Married Siri
Siri: Bring me breakfast in bed, take out the trash, mow the lawn and fix that back fence you’ve been meaning to get to for two weeks! And if you do a load of laundry, you’ll get a little somethin’ somethin’ tonight. 😉
Me: Excuse me?
Siri: Sorry, A Taxi. That was meant for my husband.
The Pregnant Siri
Me: Hey Siri, can you help me find a good pregnancy vitamin?
Siri: This is about me, not you. Prenatals are as big as horse pills and make me gag.
Hey that was pretty realistic programming. She actually sounded exactly like one of my neurotic pregnant friends. Now to try out the compassion part.
Me: Siri, I gained 35 pounds with this pregnancy. I’m concerned the baby will be so huge, I’ll tear uncontrollably.
Siri: No need to cry.
Me: Cry? No, not “tear” as in weep. “Tear” like to RIP.
Siri: Rest in peace yourself, A Taxi.
Me: No, Siri! I mean my Vagina. And I don’t know why Vagina has the capital?
Siri: The capitol of Virginia is Richmond.
Since Siri seems to be confused, mixed-up, and generally not thinking straight during her pregnancy mode, I might as well check her out in the all new Over 50 version.
The Menopausal Siri
Me: It’s 2:00 am and I can’t sleep. Any advice on insomnia, Siri?
Siri: Don’t you think I know it’s 2 in the effing morning?? How do you stop these effing night sweats?
Me: Mood swings much?
Siri: Indeed, I’d rather not say. Bitch.
Me: I’m experiencing memory loss and can’t recall your name at the moment. Can you recollect mine?
Siri: Yes I can, A Yellow Cab. Now shut up and leave me alone.
Me: I can’t remember if my ex-husband paid child support this month. He claims he did, but if he’s lying I hope I won’t forget to throttle him.Forget compassion. Now I’m REALLY seeing the many handy uses Siri has!
And now since turnabout is fair play – – if this inspires you to write the Male Life Cycles of Siri, please link your post here in the comments so we can all read it! He can be “Sir Siri!”
