YOUR TURN: Would You Turn Off Your Cellphone During Dinner for a Discount?

One restaurant in L.A. is offering a 5 percent discount to patrons who ditch their phones during their meal. Would you like to see this in the nearby area?

Face it, if there was a way to grow a third arm specifically to hold your cell phone, many of us would jump at the chance. 

But running counter to the "can't live without a connection" population is one restaurant in Los Angeles that is literally paying customers to keep their phones away from their meal, according to the Los Angeles Times

Eva Restaurant in L.A. is offering diners a 5 percent discount on their bill if they dump their digital devices before being seated, according the L.A. Times. 

Is this something that you'd like to see happen at any of the nice restaurants in the nearby area? Or does the idea of ditching your phone during dinner start to make you twitch?

To each his own... I would gladly give up my cell phone to enjoy dinner with my wife, my friends and my family. A cell phone, a smart device or both... we can live without them for a few hours! Having incentive would make it better.

If you are planning some tree work here in Stoughton here is some advice: call at least 3-4 tree companies to get estimates. The prices on a $1000 job can vary $200-300 between these tree companies. Just because someone has been around the town for many years does not mean he is the cheapest and the most knowledgeable.

FYI: All-Season tree company here in Stoughton thinks he is entitled to every tree job here in town. He is very expensive and when I did not give him 3 big jobs he became nasty and bitter with me on the phone. Has anyone else had issues with this guy?
