Dad Makes a Brilliant Move to Get Back at His Kids for Texting at the Table

Technology has changed the way we interact with each other. We see a lot of people with their faces buried in their phones or tablets, oblivious to the people they’re with. There seems to be some sort an anti-social movement going on these days. One dad decided to do something about his kids at the dinner table when they were distracted by their phones.

The kids’ phones bleep during a family dinner and they are immediately distracted. So when the dad asked for them to pass the salt, they pass the pepper instead, without looking up from their phones.

Pass the Salt


The dad takes corrective measures to make the kids realize the error of their ways.



He brings out a typewriter and types noisily at the table to bring the distraction to an end.
