Poll: Do You Text at the Dinner Table?

Do You Text at the Dinner Table?

Modern society has widely embraced technology in every aspect of life, from music and shopping to reading and cooking. But have we gone too far? A recent New York Times article weighs in on the issue of texting, emailing, and tweeting while eating — something that etiquette expert Cindy Post Senning calls "texting anarchy." Marriage and family therapists also concur, citing texting while eating as an increasing complaint among couples in counseling. I'm no stranger to sending a text or two at the table, especially if my companion is in the restroom or on the phone as well. Still, I have to agree that this form of communication should probably stay away from the dinner table, unless it is necessary and relevant. What are your thoughts? Are you guilty of texting at the table?
