The benefits here are numerous: you won’t annoy people on Instagram with uninteresting photos of your plate, you’ll learn how to engage in the art of conversation (eye contact included) with your fellow table diners and you’ll save your battery so you’ll have plenty of juice after the meal to tell everyone on Facebook how excruciatingly awesome you are for not using your phone for entire meal, making you a hero for our times.
