This is not quite the same.  Kids get a free meal if the family doesn't use a mobile at the table.  When I'm away from home by myself I always read using a device of some sort when I'm at a cafe/restaurant.  Any cafe that said I couldn't wouldn't get my business.  If I'm with people: no device except maybe to pay...……..

yes I have to agree I'm one of those mad blogger types who has to snap everything but once my meal comes it's all about what's on the plate
