6. Eerie Siri

I don’t know what it is about electronic voices, but they just give me the creeps. Whether it is virtual assistants like Siri or Allegra (or do I mean Alexa) or the ladies who ask you to press 1 or 2 when you call a help line, I don’t feel comfortable with any of them. Unless it is a good old fashioned human voice at the other end of the line, I avoid talking.

Did I mention that I even have a phobia about talking to answering machines? Even when people have recorded messages in their own voices telling you “We’re out; please leave a message after the beep” I hang up.

Have you ever felt this way? Do drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know.

  1. I like having a bit of fun with Siri. (She) doesn’t always have the same sense of humour. Siri is mostly polite but has some interesting stock answers not unlike some people I know – lol.

  2. I recently had to go to the airport and when I drove into the underground parking area, the ai voice said “Take the ticket” Which would’ve been fine, but it said it in such a mean tone that I was actually kind of offended. Lol
