I've been told that I mumble and speak too fast, but I refuse to believe it, mainly because the person who most often complains about this is my mother-in-law, and she wears hearing aids.
Unfortunately, my interactions with that bitch Siri who lives in my phone and mangles every sentence I say only bolster my mother-in-law's allegations, as described in the following verbatim transcript of several speech-text conversations with Siri:
What I Said: "I'd just as soon lay low, myself."
What Siri Heard: "A justified swoon with Lalo, myself."
What I Said: "I think Costco was all out of Kirkland signature vodka the last time I checked."
What Siri Heard: "I drank Costco is all put out Kirkland signature block the vast timing stretched."
What I Said: "Why did I decide to take the snow tires off my car if winter was just going to come in April?"
What Siri Heard: "If I decide to snake the snow tires of my car when I was going to come on April."
