This Is Why You Should Never Say 108 To Siri

This Is Why You Should Never Say 108 To Siri

Asking Siri stupid questions is one of the great joys in life. Or you know, something to do when you are really bored. Or lonely. Whatever, it's fun!

It's almost as good as asking Jeeves ridiculous questions. Remember when you used to be able to pester that butler? Siri is pretty much as good and as it's in your iPhone you can ask it dumb things all day long.

Siri is the king of the dad jokes, and that's quite reassuring really. It's the loveable, semi-intelligent friend you can keep in your pocket.

But you have to be careful with Siri. It's not just a way to amuse yourself. It's a proper personal assistant, created to make things easier for the iPhone user. And that means that it can control your phone for you. If you say 108 to Siri, it will call emergency services! Why, you ask? Well, that's because 108 is the Indian version of 999.

Siri's first responsibility is to help you, whether that's by answering your puerile questions, or looking after your safety if you're in trouble and need an ambulance or the police.

So don't do what these kids did and trick someone into saying it. It may be funny, but it's really dangerous. You could be holding up the line for someone who is in real trouble - and lead to their death! You do not want that on your conscious.

And you'll also get in massive trouble for prank calling emergency services. It can lead to a fine - or even prosecution!

Anil Gautan, 28, from Church Road in Bradmore, Wolverhampton, was jailed for 12 weeks in February after he plagued the 111 medical helpline with 5,000 bogus calls between August and November last year, claiming to be ill.

111 phone calls! Get a life, Anil. Clogging up the phone lines and preventing real emergency calls is not cool at all. If you're so lonely and need to talk to someone, there's always Siri, right?
