Your Phone: a Master or a Servant?

Do you find it hard to put down your phone, even around others? Even when you’re eating a meal?

At lunchtime, my friends and I (all iPhone users) often slip into what I term “asshole mode,” where we’re all sitting around a table and simply staring at our phones while shoveling food into our mouths. Lunchtime chatting, gossip, and news sharing eventually devolves into us all quietly staring at our phones. Pinterest or emails seem to command our attention more than our family, friends, and colleagues.

I share a few ways you can get out of “asshole mode” at Money Side of Life.
