Tony Reeder says, “Mine goes on silent when eating out.” Leon N’ Lorraine James responded that she would give up her phone “[i]n a heart beat, it is so annoying to be having a meal and cell phones ringing all around you, having to hear every ones PERSONAL business.” And, Loretta Piasecki says that “if I'm eating by myself--keep it. If I'm with someone give up the phone.”
