Does Siri get cranky when you ask your new iPhone 4S a question? Learn from the tech woes pros how to deal with your phone when Siri gets cranky.
Siri gets cranky
when you ask her certain questions. Many internet sources report unexpected, sometimes rude, and frequently funny responses to questions. According to cheatsheet.com, Siri’s answer to “What are you wearing,” include: “In the cloud, no one knows what you’re wearing,” and “I can’t answer that. But it doesn’t come off.” Don’t even think about asking her what she thinks about Google Now!
What follows is a transcript of a telephone conversation between an iPhone owner with concerns that Siri gets cranky and an unhelpful tech support person. As is my policy, I have changed the names to protect the guilty, and any resemblance to a real life situation is coincidental. Or is it? Maybe a little bit of both. I hope you enjoy my subtle attempt at geek humor, and welcome you to express your opinions and share your frustrating experiences in the comments below.

Unhelpful tech support guy: Technical support. How may we humiliate you?
Unsuspecting tech woes victim: My brand new iPhone 4S just made a rude hand gesture to me.
Unhelpful tech support guy: Oh my. What did you do to deserve that?
Unsuspecting tech woes victim: I asked its opinion on the best Android phone.
Unhelpful tech support guy: That explains it. Don’t ever mention Android or Windows in its company, and you should be fine.
Unsuspecting tech woes victim: Thank you so much. You make it so easy.
Unhelpful tech support guy: Thank you for the kind words and for calling technical support, where a stupid answer is only a phone call away.
