    A seemingly simple question - ask 1000 people this question on a Friday (like today), and 1000 out of 1000 will tell you "3". Of course, its 1 day until Saturday, 2 days until Sunday, and 3 days until Monday, right?

    Right, that is, unless you are Siri - who doesn't seem to think so (try it)

    I'm tired of this b**** not being able to answer a simple question!
    I'm tired of Siri's GPS maps bringing me to the WRONG place!
    I'm tired of Siri "correcting" my texts - always INcorrectly!

    I love my iPhone - I just hate freekin Siri!!! :mad:

    End of rant, ty 4 your time

    I have an ordinary flip-phone, so I don't have to talk with no Siri. I'm tired of computers thinking we want them to do everything for us. There's a program called "Clutter" at work that screws with my e-mail. Leave my e-mail alone. AutoCorrect, too, is 'way too busy for me. App that.

    My wife loves to mess with Siri. The questions that she asks Siri are too racy for me to mention, but they refer to Siri's sex life and drug use. Hilarious stuff.

    We did that with Cortana, and she just said she politely declines to answer that question.

    Every time someone types 'Siri' I think they are typing 'Srini." Then, I'm like, 'Look. Someone is talking to me.'

    My kids used to love to ask Siri, "What does the fox say?"

    Cortana calls me "lover" . . . and she isn't speaking to me and will not answer my questions , this takes artificial intelligence to the next level .

    Ask Siri what "zero divided by zero" equals.

    Umm… I asked Siri how many days, and this is what I got… are you on any new meds that we should know about?

    What model phone do you have? If it's no longer supported that means Siri is now past retirement age and is probably getting a bit forgetful. Of course if your phone is newish, then Siri will be an adolescent and prone to outbursts and sulking.

    I believe they fixed it, but several years ago when I was phone shopping the AT&T salesman was demonstrating Siri, and asked "What can I do with a dead body?"

    Siri showed nearby cemeteries, foundries and Lake Erie.

    Ended up getting a Galaxy S4 (that's how long ago it was), and when my brother got an iPhone I asked the same question. Siri didn't answer.

    There was also a video online of 2 iPhones talking to each other.
