How do you feel about talking on a phone while having dinner with friends or family in a restaurant? Do you answer your phone or you always keep it silent during meals or coffee dates?
This morning, Balazs sent me this intriguing article about a little restaurant in
. After realizing that their customers barely talk to each
other anymore, the owners started to offer 5% discount for any customer who is
willing to leave their phone with the receptionist for the duration of their
meal. This way the husband and wife duo hope to help people reconnect again and
enjoy a good laugh or meaningful conversation while having a great meal
together. Los Angeles
The wife even added: 'Most people actually get really enthusiastic about the concept. I think people generally like the idea of being able to turn off their cell phones. They just haven't been given the opportunity to or thought about it.'
Personally, I love the idea! You? xo
P.S: And this great couple having a good time.
