Terrible hospitality is the problem, not cell phones

I’ve got to get this one off my chest cause every time I see a friend repost this ridiculous and most likely false story, it upsets me.

The story I’m referring to is a posting that was placed on Craig’s List by an anonymous worker from a ‘New York restaurant’ that claims cell phones are the reason why wait times and service is slow at all restaurants.

It was well written and showed quite a story line to show the fall of man and the rise of the apes. It will be interesting to see where they go with the next film.
