I use my phone a lot when I'm shopping. I'll scan a barcode to see if someone else has it for less, or I'll go online and read a review of something while I'm looking at it. My iPhone is a handy tool, like a Leatherman, except I can play scrabble with people who live on the other side of the planet.
I really do love technology and would not want to go back but there is a time and place for everything. I turn my ringer off almost all the time except when I am home because it is also my home phone.
Your text or call is not more important than the people I am with at the moment. I will call you back if you leave a message.
I don't have and don't plan on getting a smart phone. I realize there will be no other option at some point and then I will have one.
If ever I go out for dinner or coffee with friends, my family or even work, there is only one rule. Phones are on the table and they are off. If anyone`s phone makes so much as a squeak, that person pays the bill for everyone.
When we started it, you could keep your phone on and if you answered it, or replied to a txt, or FB post, you got the bill but some of my sneaky nephews and nieces put their phones on vibrate and kept running off to to the toilets to answer them.
So we upped the ante, all phones off, no exceptions. Some of my younger family members initially suffered FBSA (FaceBook Separation Anxiety) but they have gradually learned that it is not the end of the world to switch the phone off for a couple of hours and have some real time interaction with your family or friends.
