iPhone Siri swears at boy in Tesco:
In a hilarious story delivered by old red tops The Sun, it appears that a Tesco in Coventry, UK, has been selling foul mouthed Siri enabled iPhones.
It appears that on show in the store, was a demo iPhone 4S which had Siri enabled, nothing wrong so far, so here the mum relays the story…
“The phone was a demo version and was low enough on the shelf for Charlie to have a go with it. He asked it a simple question and we couldn’t believe the filth it came out with.”
My son of 12, Charlie Le Quesne asked, “How many people are there in the world?”
To which the potty mouthed Tesco iPhone 4S replied:
“Shut the f*** up, you ugly t***.”
“I thought I must be hearing things. So we asked again and the same four-letter stuff blared out. I asked for the manager and after staff heard it they agreed to unplug it.”
In all honesty if it was anything like the Tesco’s I have had the unfortunate “pleasure” of visiting, it may well have simply got sick and tired of the staff or the average customer and developed its very own defence mechanism, they do say that if you put a monkey in with a typewriter you will eventually get a book, so it seems that if you put a Siri enabled iPhone in with a set of morons you will get a hilarious and witty retort.
On an even more hilarious note!
I love the fact that the image shown in The Sun shows the unhappy looking mother with a Siri incompatible iPhone 3GS, such is the high standard of journalism in the UK. I have to say I feel very proud when I look around at my peers.
Tesco staff apologised:
After explaining what had happened to the mother, staff eventually admitted that the phone was offensive and must be unplugged and reset before being allowed to be used as a demo model again.
It appears that some jokers quite simply fiddled with the settings and added the foul mouthed tirade as the name of the owner, which was then relayed when it answered the question.
The mother, a nurse, apparently could not see the funny side, as the photo seemingly shows….ummm!
Tesco were quoted saying: “We have launched an investigation. The handset will be going back to Apple for diagnostic tests.”
Has Siri said some funny things to you, or do you have an even more devious trick up your sleeve to get a rise from unsuspecting iPhone 4S demo users?
