“21st Century Manners” by Armin Brott

Anyone else have a holiday meal with a guest that couldn’t wait to ignore their hosts?

Also, put away the phones when you’re out. Okay, if you want to show me a picture that’s fine. I think anything with audio is a no no, that includes that music video we were talking about. Maybe that’s me being a dick, but whatever. I think it’s rude.

And as far as googling stuff? What used to be good pub talk—friendly bets on something dumb like the name of a character from Labyrinth, or if it was Jennifer Garner, Jennifer Lopez, or Jennifer Love Hewitt in Anaconda—now abruptly ends because someone inevitably shouts “Just Google it!”

I’m not interested in the answer. I’m interested in the debate and how silly it can get.
