Today, digital devices are in the hands of everyone from babies in their strollers to the grandparents who FaceTime with the tots while dining in the middle of an otherwise quiet restaurant.

Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.-Emily Post
