Ugh yes. For the record, my dad has been reading a gigantic, unwieldy, noisy newspaper at the table for decades without anyone complaining. My 5” smartphone? Massive etiquette violation apparently.
I need to frame this and hang it in my office. And in my house.
using a phone to talk to other people while you’re already with people is considered rude .3. It’s obvious why.
At least you’re talking to people, not putting your nose in stranger’s lives to judge them and despise the state of the world
I meant more like… When sitting at a table with your family or friends, you should speak with them, not to other people through an electronic. I’ve never owned a cellphone, so I guess this is a biased opinion uwu
My parents used to tell me to put my book away and now it’s my phone that they’re telling me to put away
