I had no idea. According to this article from the Food Network, there are certain things we need to be mindful of when dining out and having our phones with us.
- Turn it off. Switch your phone to silent or vibrate during your meal. No one wants to hear your ring tone.
- Apologize in Advance: If you are expecting an important call let your server know.
- Keep it Off the Table: Placing your phone on the table is very distracting to those dining with you.
- Don't Obsess: Don't keep reaching for your phone to see if a call of text came in. It's annoying to those around you.
