I am sure we all know at least one person who seems to be glued onto their mobile phone. So how to deal with them? Here are some advices.
Well advice number one is very effective. But on the other hand do we really treat our friends like that? I am talking about real good friends. And then there is the same question the other way round: do real friends treat YOU like that?
Number two sounds like a very kind solution. Since there are busy people and sometimes they really need to check mail boxes. I am fine with that. Considering Facebook, Instagram or messages not as professional though.
Number three: honestly I am too lazy for this strategy. And I usually never have my mobile phone nearby when hosting guests, apart from using it as a timer.
Number four and five: yes and yes. It might seem a bit over the top to the guest but think about this: Your host spent time, energy and also money to cook for you. So please just leave your devices in your bags. In case a really important business project needs to be finished during a Friday or Saturday evening tell your host. And excuse in advance.
Keep your phone in your bag!
