so the chairman and i went to grab a bite on friday night and we came across this couple who were apparently on a date.
we had a 15 minute wait for a table as all comers did on friday.
and from the onset, my observation that they were a very affectionate couple who were holding each other and that's always nice.
but upon closer examination, we realized that they were not looking into each other's eye but:
texting other people on their crackberries!
now to be fair, the bastard does a little texting (ok a bunch of texting) but, he tries to keep it out of the arena of restaurants most of the time.
i just found it funny that they were so close to each other but so very far away from each other because they were both looking over each other's shoulders, texting.
i guess it's a really efficient way to mix business and pleasure. romance is dead. long live romance
