Siri for a blood test with only mom for the first time.

Siri for a blood test with only mom for the first time.

Siri had blood test today.  She was so well behaved, she took the number and sat down for her turn.  She was listening to the numbers being called and was checking her slip to see if it’s hers. She patiently waited until they called hers and went to register.  After registration she had to wait for another line to be called where they do the actual blood draw.

Would Siri care what people are saying about her ?

I wonder if Siri knows what people have been saying (complimenting) about her. Would she care? I don’t think so. She is a simple minded girl, make her world more predictable and be gentle with her, that is all she cares for.

Siri loves to attend and participate at the conferences. She interacts with her customers only if they want her to do something as she gets anxious when spoken.
