Should eating or drinking establishments have televisions sets if they aren’t sports bars?
Having recently stumbled into a wall of flatscreens when she was anticipating a quiet dinner with a friend instead, Jezebel’s Kate Dries sure doesn’t think so. “As humans, we cannot help but look at light and movement, which makes televisions the most distracting of things,” she writes. “That’s all fine and well if you want to be entertained. But when you’re at a food and drink establishment with televisions, having left your house in an attempt to have a conversation with a real person, and you end up not really talking to that dear friend, instead finding yourself constantly distracted by whatever is on the screen behind their head, it could be something awful.”
