and on some mobile device, which Perris blows outta the water. But it opens the door for a question (like I need the invite?). Anyway, I was out last night playing pool and the guy was good company, but kept pulling out his phone to text/reply. I said "Why don't you just invite him/her to join us?" He asked "Is this rude?" I squinched my eyes and pressed thumb and forefinger together "A teeny bit." Good guy, fun time ... but, do you guys think that it's generally *not* rude? I kind of assume that it is, and while I'm okay reminding teenagers to put the crackberry away during dinner (for example), it felt weird to comment to an adult. That's the question: would you need to be told it's rude? Detail: It was his girlfriend who was irritated that he was out with someone-he-just-met instead of home watching TV while she was out with her friends. After he stopped texting, she phoned. I "get" it. But ... is this what I can expect out there in the world?
