Kids Always Text At Dinner Table So Dad Solves The Problem In The Most Perfect Way

By - 23rd November 2018

I think it’s fair to say that cellphones now play a huge part in our lives. We use them to call, text, take pictures, send emails, play games and listen to music. So, of course, a lot of people are pretty dependent on their cellular devices.

However, phones have now become a huge distraction in our day to day lives. And sometimes, it’s hard to go ten minutes without having somebody in your company pick up their cellphone.

I’m sure all of you have told off your friends or family members for not paying attention or not being present. It’s frustrating having a conversation with someone only to have them start texting midway through.

Pass The Salt

A lot of families have rules such as ‘no phones at the table’ and it looks like the memo may have been forgotten in this household. And now, this father has had enough – but how can he get through to his two teenage boys?

This father was at the dinner table with his family when he asked his son to pass the salt…

But he noticed that his son wasn’t paying full attention because he was too busy texting. The boy had slid pepper over to his father instead of the salt which he asked for.

When the dad couldn’t get their attention, he knew he had to fight fire with fire. He did this by showing them just how infuriating their ways are. This exaggerated sketch really did make us laugh. Although it is ridiculous, I know a lot of people would have loved to have done the same.

Have you ever had to tell your children to get off their cellphones? Let us know if you have any fun ways of demonstrating their behavior.

Don’t forget to watch ‘Pass The Salt’ where we see a dad getting frustrated by mobile phones in the video below. Also, at Happiest we love hearing all of your opinions. So please let us know what you thought of the article in the comment section. 🐝
