This motivational speaker loves what Eva Restaurant in Los Angeles offers. Any diner who checks their cell phone at the door gets a 5% discount. Even cooler is owner and Chef Mark Gold’s goal to avoid distracted dining. He wants to create an environment where two people sit and connect!
My kids have groaned for years as I insist meals together are a No Cell Phone Zone. If I didn’t enforce this dinner table rule they’d be texting one another to pass the butter! Plus, they wouldn’t be sharing their latest antics, annoying teachers, nor have the opportunity to listen to me drone on about some unimportant fact they don’t need to know. Or so they think!
When I dine with others I’m often the one who is willing to speak my truth and say, “Is it cool with everyone if we put our phones away while we’re together?” Nothing irks me more than when I’m put on hold every few minutes while someone responds to non-emergency issues. Don’t get me wrong, I love the convenience of our phones and don’t want to live without mine. Yet, there is a time and a place …unless of course you are an emergency room doctor or you’ve left the kids home alone to grab a bite of sanity.
