I went out to eat by myself and I was texting and the waitress brought my food out and said: “here you go sir, enjoy.” And I said: “Thanks.” And I was still fiddling with my phone texting my friend and she said: “can I get you something else?” and I said: “im good thanks!” then she said: “Enjoy.”
Then after about 5 minutes, I was still texting and the waitress came back and said: “excuse me sir, you didn’t even take a bite of your food yet. Eat your food because its going to get cold.” Then I got annoyed and said something like: “I will, I’m just sending an important text, do you mind?” and she looked at me weird then ignored me. So I started to eat my food and when I needed the waitress, she was never around! I HATE THAT! I had to get the check and was waiting patiently so I figured, I will go back to texting again and when I texted again, she came back and startled me and asked: “Can I get you anything else?” and I said: “Just the check.” And she said: “Put your phone away first.” And I was really aggravated!
Then after I paid, she said she was really disappointed that I was texting and not talking to her. She said: “I never seen anyone like you fiddle on your phone constantly.”
Meanwhile, I see her texting all the time and at one point, I needed her for something while she was texting and she told me I have to wait a minute now!
So was she being rude or was I being rude in this situation?
YOU are the one who is rude. Your attention goes first to those you are with in person, not to mention the waitress has a job to do and can’t stand around waiting for you to text. Not only that, she was probably pointing out that you haven’t bothered with your food since she brought it since you seem like the kind of person who would lodge a complaint that it was cold when it’s all your fault.
Besides, if you’re incapable of multitasking those two simple things, you need to stay home so you don’t walk into a pole or something if texting if you’re that addicted to your phone.
