Sodding technology 1

I'm not a technophobe, despite my advanced age, I used to run an IT business, so I do know my way around a bit.

Firstly my DGD who stayed over on Friday night decided to go home early on Saturday as it was her school fair and she was dancing in it.
I drove her home but there was no-one there, I knew DD was at work so I sent SIL a text to see where he was.
I carried on driving around, I went to the bakers and then drove towards a friends house to water his plants.
I have a hands free phone system in my car and after a few minutes it burbled in to life, 'You have a message from Carl my son in law, do you want to read it or ignore it?'
'Ignore it' I said clearly, I would read it when I got to my friends house.
'You have a message from Carl, do you want to read it or ignore it?' it repeated.
'Ignore it' I repeated.
A mechanical voice decided to read the message anyway and said 'I'm in Asda, is there a problem?'
It then asked 'Do you want to reply or have you finished'?
'Finished' I announced.
'Do you want to reply or have you finished'?
'Finished' I announced.
'Do you want to reply or have you finished'?
'Finished' I houted, by this time DGD is in fits of laughter and so was I
The mechanical voice continued 'Text 'finished' to Carl, send text or delete?'
'Delete, delete, delete' I shouted.
'Message sent' the mechanical voice said, sounding very smug.
I pulled on the my friends drive, phoned Carl and asked him to collect DGD when he'd finished shopping!

This would be so funny if it weren't so darned annoying, wouldn't it?

And this is precisely why I don't want anything techie around me, apart from my laptop and very basic phone. Lol, lol, lol.
