If My Phone Could Talk….

As we are trying to make our lives easier through technology, isn’t there a part of us that is getting overly dependent on these means? So much so that it gets almost extremely disgusting at some point. Haven’t we gotten really far from actual social networking in the stead of social networking?

 

I really find it very weird sometimes when I see people literally talking to the phone, not over the phone, but to it. I have seen my friends do it, sometimes when I am busy even I do it to speed things up a bit, but when I see the speakerphone on our phones to be used as an entertainer, well it’s just funny!!

 

See for yourself!!

Damn right, we are!!

Now, what? Are we going to joke back at Siri?

Which is?

And what about us? Any new jumpers?

Thanks for the info, but as usual we’ll pass!

Yes, probably find a little sensibility, and the courage to ask real people for plans!

What if she asks our scores? I am below negative, for sure!

Better imagination than mine, shall I say?

Well….

Now shall we have some self respect?

 

Seriously, what is happening to us?

 

Believe me, all I do with my Siri, is ask it to call or text someone, or at the maximum to look up something over the internet, but people really do these stuff! At first I didn’t believe it, but they really do! Hey, I am not judging anyone for doing this, but all I am saying is I would rather ask the person sitting next to me to tell me a joke or talk to me rather than a flat screen shining phonily at me.

 

PS: If you did laugh a bit, then thanks to the humor, well humor, which Siri puts  in her responses 😉

I guess there’s another post script required: The idea of this post came from an acquaintance who kept sharing WhatsApp stories of how she was having fun talking to Siri! At first it was comical, but in time it grew more like Raj’s obsessions (From Big Bang Theory) who almost thinks Siri is real, and even as much thinks her to be his girlfriend! The post is made in no intention of hurting anyone’s feelings. If at all this proves offensive or impolite, then I am sorry, because I have no intentions as such. And if so, I will consider this as a failed attempt of my being humorous.

So, here’s to technology!

  1. I’ve never used Siri nor do I plan to 😀 This was a very good post, Moushmi! I was thinking about writing about the phone addiction myself, when I came across yours 😀 I too have huge issues with the way smartphones come in between real relationships.

  2. You sure are hilarious and you certainly tickled my funny bone. I use Siri to make phone calls and searching something, which I am too lazy to type. But wait we are now surrounded by all talking machines. Siri, google home, Alexa, dot and what not.
    Did you hear that story when an husband talking to his wife about his boss got recorded by Alexa and sent to his boss. A small accident 😊and people still keep them in their bedroom. 😜

  3. Just today, we were having a talk with uncle on how people are more interested in gadgets than with real conversations! That’s true and am quite guilty in a way but never did timepass with Siri. The only thing when someone calls, it notifies me! The Siri jokes and dialogue are quite amusing! ha!

  4. Doing it for fun is ok, but then there are many other ways to have fun. Let’s spare our phone from it. Without judging anyone, I will like to state that smartphone have slowly evolved as an integral part of our life.
