I went out to lunch with a couple of friends to a casual upscale restaurant, while seated and before the server brought our drinks and menus one of the group takes out her cell phone and begins texting. Well... ok... maybe it was an important message.... But this continued through lunch, and was in my opinion rude. Of the 3 of us at lunch only she answered any texts, or even brandished a cell phone (I silence mine when I eat) I expect this from teenagers, they are rude and have zero respect at restaurants it seems, but not a 40 year old woman. I wish restaurants had a NO CELL PHONE zone, like non-smoking.
