Siri is a breath of fresh air | The Ghouse

 When you turn on the phone for directions,
it is Siri who gives you directions to your destination.  In the last four days, I have taken too many
wrong turns and have gone on in circles and have surprised myself how I ended
up where I started… and the destination also starts getting farther.  I was driving to Bethesda, MD, and it was 18
miles and from the Capitol and I ended up driving 33 Miles.

Washington Roads are like the Politicians who flip, take sharp turns, and
abruptly end into one way…  I don’t know
if the roads are designed to reflect the politicians or politicians caused the
roads to be testy.

That is why, Siri*** is breath of fresh air.
She was exceptionally good throughout the day, when she tells me to take the
left turn, and I miss it… she does not even comment or scream at me,  instead she pleasantly tells me to take the next left turn at the next intersection!  

How delightful!  If it were a typical husband, wife, father,
daughter or mother… they will shout – “You missed it” “how many times do I have
to tell you to pay attention” “did it again” “get me out of here” and guess
what, the more drama, the more mistakes you make. Thank God for your patience, you successfully resisted screaming back to shut the up.   

Once my daughter, whom I taught driving, screamed at me, “Dad, stop, the light
is Red” what do I do? I give the gas and almost had a head on collision.  My good friend did the same too once. I will
not say a word about the wife.

We all can learn a lesson from Siri.  She trusts you are still driving and does not say a word and simply moves on. When the driver makes the mistake, don’t make a big deal, just shut up
and let the driver drive. The man or
woman is already panicky, and don’t add insult to it by your criticism.

On my part, when I am the passenger, I will not panic, nor do I say a word or
attempt to put imaginary breaks.  It is
called “trusting” – the most difficult thing to do. How many of you trust your
loved ones?

Yes, you should not trust each other, if you are screaming at each other.
