I had to force my husband to turn his phone off or put it away when out to dinner with me. He developed a very bad habit of having his phone on and in his face during half of our dinner or more. He wasn’t trying to be rude, he has his own IT/Networking Company and couldn’t put it down for fear something would go wrong if he wasn’t checking email constantly. He’s able to now and dinner is much more pleasant.
