I was at a dinner last night with three others, and all of them put their phones out on the table. Through the entire meal they kept stopping to check phones, and while we were trying to keep the conversation going, one of them turned his back on the rest of the group because he was reading Twitter. As we were waiting for him to answer a question, after a few minutes he had to be tapped on the shoulder and everything repeated. I really do not know how to handle this, short of saying that since they obviously have something better to do we will reschedule. Could I ask for a no-phone meal? I have arranged the next dinner in a restaurant with no phone reception.
