Recently, I was at a restaurant celebrating my 50th birthday with my husband. A young couple were seated next to us, and as soon as they were seated, they took out their phones and started fiddling with them.
Now, I know it’s rude to eavesdrop, but our tables were so close together that is was impossible not to notice that throughout the meal, the couple were glued to their phones. There was hardly any conversation, and then at the end of the meal (which was very quick), they took a double selfie and then buggered off!
It was like…’well, we’ve been out for dinner together…let’s take a photo to show everyone what a great time we had.’. Sadly, this seems to be the way for the world; we’re so obsessed with keeping up with technology that we can’t even let go of our gadgets to enjoy a simple meal together.Here’s an interesting article that talks about this predicament in more detail: Read the full article here.
