He was in command, but she is in (or out) of control
So who knew that a GPS has only so much memory? Hubby found out the hard way when he went to update his Garmin. He ended up having to buy a new one. He decided to buy a voice-activated system. He's a gadget man, and he loves anything technologically challenging, the more functions and buttons on the device the better.
We had to go to the grocery store, and so he decided to give his GalPalSweetie a trial run. He spoke distinctly.
"Activate voice control." I looked at the expression on his face; I'm sure he thought he was at command central of a Star Wars craft.
The gal said, "State a command."
He said, "Goodwill store." (It was a mile away)
She said, "State a command."
He said, "I did."
She said, "Do you want to find a location? Say, 'Find a location.' "
He said, "Find Goodwill Store, then."
She said, "Did you say, "Goodwin Store Diamonds?"
He: "NO, I said Goooood Will."
She: "Did you want Goo Foo Will?
He and she went back and forth about six more times, and finally he looked at me and said, "Stop laughing, you're messing her up!"
Then he tried again: "HOME!"
She said, "Home food will?"
My mild-mannered, soft-spoken husband blew his lid. His blood pressure was boiling, and he shouted an expleteive, "Dumb f**kin' thing!"
She said demurely, "Do you want Kentucky Fried Chicken?"
OMG! I laughed until I cried and wet my pants.
He'll get her in line, but not with me in the car, because as you know, it is all MY fault she can't find the Goodwill Store or even direct us home.
