Checking-Smartphones-DinnerThis week’s topic of the week is for both classes – PRCA 2330 & PRCA 3334.

Picture it: You are dinner with your friends, family, significant other, etc. Do you a). engage in conversation with them and ignore your cell phone if/when it beeps; b). try a  little of both – talking and playing/texting on your phone; c). ignore others at the table and become completely engrossed in whatever is on your phone?

Have you ever sat in a location and watched how others interact? Are they engaged with the people near them or studying their phone? Does it bother you when people
use their phone during dinner or other face-to-face events? Did your parents have rules for using/not using your cell phone at the dinner table?
