Know when to stay off your phone.
This is another one of those things I'm still trying to be better at. There are times for Instagramming and texting, and there are times where it's truly obvious you're not present because your eyes are glued to your screen.
I had one of those moments a fewdays ago, when I was out to dinner -- I was so focused on answering some workemails, that when I finally looked up, I realized my dinner companions were silent, and had been waiting for me to get off my phone.
It was a disruption and a distraction, and frankly, quite rude. Let's all make a point to end the madness.

A good lawyer might be able to get you off.
