I'm not sure why the concept is so difficult for people to get through their heads, but answering your cell phone while at the dinner table, whether it's at a small dinner party, a large cocktail party or in a business dinner meeting, it's just plain rude! Why is it so difficult to excuse yourself and JUST WALK AWAY?
Let's enjoy each other's company with good drinks and lots of laughs!
We don't want to hear your awkward conversation with an ex-girlfriend or fight with your mother, so do us a favor and JUST WALK AWAY! Besides, do you really want the entire world to know your personal business? If you replied yes, then maybe it's time you rethink before shouting your problems to the world. To tell you the truth, NO ONE CARES, unless you want to handle it like an adult! Your friends are ready to be there for you, but only when you are ready to act like a grown-up and decide to have an intimate, personal conversation about it. There is no reason to proclaim it to the whole world, unless you are looking for your 10 minutes of fame. And that's not a good way to get sympathy either...just saying...
Just remember, mystery is more enticing than baring your soul to every person at dinner through your phone call! Make your friends and colleagues curious about you, this is more attractive than making all your problems available for the whole world! Are you ready for that kind of judgement? I'm not!
A simple but beautiful friendship!
