Saying Things That You Don’t Mean

Saying things that you don’t mean…

The other day, I was talking with a young mother about her six month old baby boy. He was deliciously cute and seemed like such a good baby.

“Wow, your baby is so quiet!” I said.

“I know,” she said, “I’m so lucky.”

“Yes, you are! My first had Colic and I thought I would kill myself, it was so difficult!” I said.

With that, my Apple iWatch sent me an alert, “if you feel like killing yourself, please call the suicide hotline” and it offered me the number. Then I got another alert, “if you would like, we can call the suicide hotline for you…”

OMG, I couldn’t believe that something I said, which I didn’t mean, could be heard on Siri and taken seriously. I guess I need to be more careful about what I say!
