I'm fine with this as long as they aren't going to put pressure on me that affects the enjoyability of my meal. Otherwise, they aren't getting a tip.
"You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to
them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new."
As long as its not mandatory im good. If its 10% maybe lol. Cant miss important uodates u knoe
I turn mine off at dinner anyways.
Wonder what would happen if someone got their phone back with a few calls to China added to the bill?
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I put mine on vib even in movie theatres. I rely on it so much. I NEVER take calls on my phone in the theatre, but, if it vibs I'll block the light and check what's going on.
in my defense though, I do actually need that sort of connectivity for my job.
I think people would rather pay the normal rate and keep their phones. There have been polls where people said they would give up X rather than their phones. X could be eating, sex, sleeping, etc.
it is interesting how many people can't possible be expected to miss the latest mindless dribble from the moronic mind of their favorite cleb, but how many get up in the middle of the night to read twitter feeds or texts? Obviously it isn't that important. There are very few things that can't wait a few hours while you enjoy a movie or dinner. I think it is a sad state of our culture that someone can't disconnect for a few minutes and focus their attention on a movie, meal or the person they are with. Show some respect for the people you are with and that you have a little self control, and more importantly get over yourself, you aren't so important that if you miss a text or call the world stops turning.
I think people should pay the restaurant to hold onto their i(diot)Phone or Crackberry for an hour or two. If I owned a restaurant ot theater, I would build it to block cell signals. It can be (and is) done and it is legal as long as it is passive, not active. Devices that block cell signals are illegal in the USA, but oddly enough, the companies who make the devices say the US is their biggest market, and not just the Government. I have had reports of these devices in many Government buildings in DC, mostly in conference rooms, but also in large theaters and Churches all over the country.
