I hear ya........I use to do dinners with friends, all the time........but got sick of it, when I would go, and everyone would just sit there, fiddling with their phones and sharing pictures, and swapping funny videoes.
I'd ask a question, and they would be like............."What? Huh? Oh wait let me show you this video first........and then totally ignore my question.
I just stopped going to the dinners.
I was roped into one last week.....and agreed to try again, and sure enough, they alll sat there playing with their phones. I just sat there, ate my dinner, and went home. Never again,
