True, but some people are young enough to not remember a time without cell phones. I still think OP deserved it for going out to eat with no cash then expecting everyone to cover him/her, but I think compulsively checking your phone is something most people born from the '90's onward do.

I understand that but we will never be born to check cell phones in times of awkward silence. It's a bad use of the word "instinct". Compulsively checking their phones, as you said, is more correct.

I don't know...I've had a mobile phone for over ten years now and it's really not hard to just turn it off for a while. If the silence is awkward, make conversation. Don't just grab your phone and make it even more awkward for the other people at the table. It kinda makes me sad that there are people who can't leave their damn phones alone for even an hour or so. It's annoying going out with friend/s for dinner or a movie, only to have them constantly checking their phones or texting other people. I can understand if you're expecting an important call or if you just want to check the time, but people who text others or play games while they're hanging out with you are just rude IMO. Especially if they interrupt a conversation or make you feel excluded while doing so.

No just people who are glued to their phone and are always on it. Instinct? Oh please the personal communication of people is doomed thanks to spoiled kids with phones, bad parenting, poor education and so many other things.

39 - The game is where you're always playing the game, you cannot win; you can only lose, you lose whenever you remember the game, when you do lose the game, you must announce out loud "I lost". After you lose, you may have 30 minutes in which you can remember the game, as soon as you tell anyone about the game, they are playing too. The goal is to have everyone playing. Anyone reading this just lost. Don't even worry about it.

I was on a several month streak of not losing the. Thanks a lot! Although I just reminded two of my friends about the game and they got mad, that was pretty funny. So thank you for giving me a laugh.

Exactly my thought. I mean - they are friends, they are supposed to understand that every now and than anyone can be low on cash. In my circle of friends every time different person pays when we are out, but that goes around and at some point we all have paid approximatelly equal amount, and for sure we can say to each other "i'm a bit low om cash, let's meet at your/his/her place and make popcorns or pizza and watch a movie/play a game" or one of us would say "it's my treat today"

It actually is a latest thing to stop people being rude by going out for dinner so if your phone is more important than who your dining with then you get to foot the bill. I have a feeling the bill gets divide between all people who use their phone?
