I went to Wilson Farm up in Lexington, and from there, my next stop was Target in Watertown.
The area’s not completely foreign to me, but I decided to use Apple Maps anyway.
I hit the road, and Siri began telling me where to go.
When I got about a mile from the farm, she told me to make a turn … and because it didn’t look right to me, I decided to ignore her.
She recalculated, and I ignored those new directions too.
She tried a third time, and no, I didn’t follow those directions either.
I knew where I was. Sort of. Siri had to be taking me on a bad route. (Not an outlandish assumption to make.)
Except she wasn’t. Siri was trying to get me to my destination the fastest, most direct way she knew how. I was being stubborn, as usual, and not listening to her.
As a result, I wound up going places where I had no idea where I was.
