I really love what the coffee club is trying to promote at the moment with putting your mobile phones away and start talking. I went to my local coffee club the other day and saw the little boxes they had to people to put their phones in so they could actually talk to each other. I really wished that my hubby had been there as he is awful companion when we go for coffee. It is at the point where I don’t go anywhere with him because I know he will spend the whole time looking at his phone on the net while I sit there looking around into space, waiting for that moment he may put it away. I have mentioned this to him a number of times but he still does it….Im not even sure if he realises, its like it has become habit.
When I go out for coffee with my mum or friends, our phones are away. Its our time to catch up. It only lasts for an hour or so out of your day. I am sure social media or whatever the latest news on the net is can wait.
Communicate with your loved ones, as one day they wont be there.

  • Totally agree, I find it do rude when people are constantly checking their mobiles when you are catching up with them. How hard is it to put them away for an hour or so?

  • When we were at a Chinese restaurant the other day I noticed a family gathering at one table spent most of their time texting or reading when they were supposably there for a birthday celebration. The only time they stopped was to sing Happy Birthday when the cake came out! Whatever did we do before mobiles were invented! It was sad not hearing any happy conversation like it should have been.

  • We are becoming such an unsocial society and it is so common to see people walking around on their phone (not watching where they are going), out at restaurants on their phones and not talking…it is sad!

  • Yeah, I never have my phone out when I’m out with someone – and I don’t answer it either, unless the call is from my husband or babysitter.

  • I know how you feel. I know that I do use my phone a lot but there is a time and place.

  • I agree! When I am having a coffee with someone the phone is on silent and I don’t answer it.


    • Good on you! I always have too much to talk about anyway; so I forget about my phone! ;)

  • I am with you! I will not talk to someone if they are looking at their phone! The person in front of you is far more important than the person on the other end of the phone. I suggest you take both phones and place them in a bag when you go out for coffee and give them back at the end of the coffee! Might work? ;)
