Hear Ye, Hear Ye

"Singing out" this great idea shared by Kelly Rippa:

When out for dinner with family or friends,  the first person who uses their cell phone gets to pick up the check!!!  {NO talk.text.data}  Can you even imagine the quality conversations?

Love it! 

Pin It!


  1. (he he) I hear ye, I hear ye...what a good idea! ;D

  2. That would mean I would never have to pick up the check, especially with my kids! I should challenge them :)

  3. Sounds like a fabulous idea. We all need to disconnect from those NOT around us and connect more to those we are with!

  4. Great idea! We try to have a rule, no phones at the table. Doesn't always work but we try.

  5. Renee, if you can believe it, our family of five has only one cellphone between us. I find them convenient, but often so rude. I was in a 4th grade classroom yesterday where a little girl had a phone stored in her boot she was wearing and I guess she mistakenly called 9-1-1, right in the middle of our editing exercise! Why do we need phones at the table? Joni

  6. Great idea! That should definitely include texting too. Just because it's silent, that doesn't make it any less rude. Technology, like most things, is wonderful so long as it doesn't change us negatively.

  7. I love this idea! Can I use it on my husband? ;)

  8. Fantastic idea!!! you are an insperation! Thank you!


Thanks so much for leaving a comment. I read each and every one and they make me sing! renée
