Mealtime is when families gather around the table, pray and eat together, and share things about family matters, local news or politics, and life- just anything under the sun!
Dinnertime used to be sacred. Families had dinnertime rules such as no television, no answering of calls, no using of phones while eating. Dinnertime was simply an intimate time to share with families and loved ones. No distractions while making memories! Mealtime will always be a great bonding experience for family and friends.
But some things had changed. Some parents would ask what happened. Well, Technology happened.
The rise of the first handheld mobile phone was demonstrated by John F. Mitchell and Martin Cooper of Motorola in 1973. And since then, mobile phones were being upgraded to bring more features and usage.
According to Wikipedia, mobile phones are used for a variety of purposes, such as keeping in touch with family members, for conducting business, and in order to have access to a telephone in the event of an emergency. Some people carry more than one mobile phone for different purposes, such as for business and personal use.
Technology has helped this generation to progress in many ways. But sadly, it has its downside as well. Like when the cell phone was created, it helped millions of people to connect in an instant. However, people have overused its purpose. It has seemingly isolated people from the little things that matter.
We see people in restaurants having dinner but not talking to each other because each one is connected to their phones, either swiping, scrolling or texting.
This video maybe a bit funny but it surely gives us a lesson that we should all take time to ponder.
In this short film, the parents and their two sons are sitting at the table for dinnertime. Both sons take out their phones and begin to focus on their screens. The dad asks one of his son to please pass the salt. But due to the undivided attention of the son to his phone, he passes the wrong thing.
And that’s when the dad teaches them a hilarious lesson.
