Who Won This Argument Between Giants Coach Tom Coughlin And Siri?

New York Giants’ head coach Tom Coughlin is 68-years-old. As such, his relationship with technology is, umm, testy.

The senior citizen coach recently had a battle with Siri that’s exactly what you’d expect if your grandpa was tasked with asking that vile, heinous, untrustworthy Siri for directions to his grandson’s roller hockey game.

Per Newsday:

“Two weeks ago I’m trying to get to a roller hockey game that my grandson is playing in, so Marc Ross [the Giants’ director of college scouting] had showed me how to talk to this phone,” Coughlin said. “I don’t trust the lady in GPS, I don’t trust her, because they don’t send you the right way. I hit the button and I go ‘Park Ridge, New Jersey.’ And she comes back on, she’s giving me directions. So now I figure out where I am. I hit the thing and I said, ‘Thank you very much, I know exactly where I am now.’ And she comes back and says, ‘You don’t have to thank me.’ I swear to God that’s what she said. And then I couldn’t get her to shut up. Every turn. ‘Take a right here.’ I know where I am. I know where I am. I’m a block away from my house and she’s telling me where to go. I said, ‘I know where I’m going.’ “

After that, Tom downed a cup of prune juice, scarfed down some Jell-O and called James McGill to write his will. This guy is tasked with running a real-life professional football team and telling Eli Manning where to throw the ball every Sunday.
