Go away Siri!

And now for something completely differently as my life just gets weirder.....I have now taken a phone call on my iPad....failing to reach my mobile phone I tapped "accept" on the pad and had a whole spoken conversation with someone whilst talking to my ipad......I had no idea this was possible....
At much the same time I found I had a new follower on G2...an American in full military uniform ....no idea of rank etc. I just know brass when I see it....
I do very little now on G2. I only post occasionally , usually when I've taken a good picture but the numbers keep going up....
If my life gets any weirder I'm not sure I can cope...are you listening?
No I'm not talking to Siri.....though I admit that a few minutes ago I was trying to find info on the iPad whilst I was on the phone and pressing the wrong button brought me a voice " How can I help you today Jean"
The man I was talking to had never heard of Siri and clearly thought I was fast approaching dementia when I told Siri to go away and then reassured him it wasn't him I was talking to!
Do other people have days like this? If so I think I should be told! Please!

  1. No one has as yet owned up to their lives getting weird....or in my case weirder! So it has confirmed my worst suspicion...it's just me! As I have also today received twos phishing emails I am now suspecting a plot!
    Paranoia has never been my thing....but maybe I'm just a late developer in this area! Oh dear!

  2. You don't really expect me to believe that you are having a conversation with a machine, do you???

    You can't be Sirious. :-) :-)

    1. Not properly I afraid....it's fortunate that we've had some mild weather because I am still waiting! The new valve has yet to arrive! Arghhhh I wonder if I asked Siri. ......

  4. I have just upgraded to windows 10 - and strange things happen as I get used to personalising it to my own taste. The bugbear is a screen magnifier app, which you can't switch off unless you use task manager - and working out where it is on the system to disable it is proving to be a challenge :(
