Recognizing Canned Crap

“U really got to work on that voice recognition thing.”

This is what Natasha texted to me after I sent her the following nonsense:

“I talked to the vet, who tried to talk me into that can to crap they sell. After The Liberation, he said chicken and rice was okay and defeat it to him for a week.”

Gibbs was having issues with diarrhea and I had made a call to the vet.

My next text clarified:

“Canned crap. After deliberation. To feed, not defeat.”

Natasha came back with her one-liner and my texting continued…

“I know, mouth full of sh*t.”

Natasha replied, “Luv my flip phone.”

Gibbs is working on feeling better, and Natasha is missing all the fun.

This post has been brought to you by the need to speak clearly with voice recognition. It has also been brought to you by Linda G. Hill’s “One-Liner Wednesday.” All you need to play along every week is an awesome one-liner and follow a few rules. Birds on a wire are not required, but make sure you link back today’s post to HERE so the rest of us #1linerweds peeps can read it.

    Damn fat finger clicking…I wanted to vote excellent and I think my mouse moved over to good instead…anyhoo…Hope Gibbs continues to feel better!!

      Gibbs is doing much better and I’ve been paying better attention to my voice texting. I would have to send a naughty word to my boss or have someone else think I’m crazy!

      • Shelley says:

        Good thinking! I’ve never used the voice recognition, it’s bad enough double checking what autocorrect has done to my texting!

      • bikerchick57 says:

        True enough! Autocorrect can be good, but it can be very bad too. We have to keep an eye on these things, Shelley. :-

    That’s funny. I think everyone knows that when it comes down to you vs. Gibbs, you’re going to be the one moaning about defeat. It’s nice of our phones to entertain us.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      You mean everyone knows that Gibbs has the edge over me? I might have to work on changing that…at least the image.
      My phone has definitely entertained me on more than one occasion. Can’t wait to see what comes next! 🙂

        It his calculated endearing quality that messes me up. One minute, Gibbs lets me hold him like a baby while he gently places his paw on my chin (awwww). The next minute he’s up to his naughty hijinks, believing I will forgive him, which I do. You have a safe bet there, Dan.

    Voice re cognition? I don’t think so. I have enough trouble with just getting my laptop to recognize my fingerprint. Seriously – how hard is a fingerprint?

    Poor Gibbs, and poor pooper-scooper. Sending virtual hearts and hugs.

      My furry problem child has been doing better. I think he got into something that really upset his tummy and it has taken a few days to get out of his system.

      As for the voice recognition, I love it when I have a lot to say and don’t want to spend the time slowly texting my way through it. I only have to make sure I check my texts before sending.

    When I call a company and get a menu that asks me to say something I usually assume they won’t recognize my response, but perhaps they keep my voice to identify me as the caller.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      I do not like the voice prompts when I call a company. I would rather push buttons. I’m not sure if the voice system can save and recognize voices, but you never know with today’s technology.

    It IS crap, that canned stuff. All of it. Lui gets what Stringer and I always called “scrabblies” – dry food that contains everything he needs. Mind you, cheap it ain’t, M-J: all the grain-free scrabblies are expensive.
    What ?
    Oh, your post ?
    Gibbs is NOT TO BE SICK. That’s an order.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      I was feeding Gibbs and Ziva the grain-free dry food until Gibbs got a bladder infection last year. Now he is eating the expensive canned grain-free food and Ziva remains on dry. What the vets want to give me is crap canned food with grain and other things that Gibbs pukes up all over the bed. So, none of that stuff ever.

      I will tell Gibbs he is not to be sick on your order. He might lighten to you! :-p

      • M-R says:

        Seriously, darlin, I know this must be a bad time for you, beautiful Gibbs being sick … We suffer as much as they do, eh ? XXXOOO

      • bikerchick57 says:

        Yes, we do. I am a worry wart when it comes to the kids. Gibbs is doing better, so keep your paws crossed for him, okay?

  6. Voice recognition texting …. I’d prefer to use my finger. It might be slower, but at least I’m not there trying to make it recognise that I said eight not hate nor ate. Pfftt!

    As for the voice prompts … I’m sick of those, thoroughly. I was calling somewhere yesterday and it asked me for my Postcode (bit like zip code) – the automatic ‘woman’ asked me to repeat mine three times over, and it still couldn’t recognise the last thing in the code which was a Y. I have a decent speaking English voice and I speak clearly. By the third ask I wasn’t speaking clearly – I was SHOUTING the darn thing!
    Thankfully it put me through to a real person. [sigh]

    Hope Gibbs is feeling better and if so, stays that way.
    Can you give him a chinny scratch from his Aunt Cobs. Thanks. ❤
    Happy Valentines Day Mary. ~ Cobs. xxx

    • bikerchick57 says:

      Gibbs loves his chinny skritches and most certainly will adore some from his Auntie Cobs. Now there is a guy who recognizes voice prompts, especially when I ask “want food?” There’s no repetition or shouting because Gibbs gets a real human being with food and not a computer who keeps asking “did you say good? wood? hood?”.
      Happy V-day back at ya!

      • Alf Capone (Used Furniture Dealer – and thief) is food orientated. He denies this … however, if I so much as gently move the jar of cheesy puffs (cat treats called Dreamies) he can be at my feet before I’ve taken a breath.

        These cats have us SO well trained. But … we love them so are happy to do it. lol. C. x

    So funny! I hate it when that happens, and I don’t notice so fail to correct it, which is 98% of the time. Usually people don’t bother to correct me. I picture them shrugging and shaking their heads in a “What can you expect of Janet” sort of way.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      The reason I use voice recognition is so I don’t have to make corrections with my fingers. It should work the first time around, don’t you think? Then no one would shake their heads at us! 🙂
