EATING OUT: Phones Blamed for Longer Wait Times at Restaurant

EATING OUT: Phones Blamed for Longer Wait Times at Restaurant

A restaurant in New York tried to figure out why they were getting more and more complaints about delays in service – and discovered, surprisingly, that mobile phones were to blame.

Market Diner hired an outside company to investigate the increase in complaints.

That company went back to security video from 2004 and compared it to current video.

They found that it took about one hour and 55 minutes for customers to get in and out of the restaurant.

In 2004, that time was one hour and five minutes.

The cause of this increase?

Well, unlike in 2004, customers today spend a lot of time taking pictures of their food and goofing off on their phones before ordering – slowing everything down and making people wait. (Fox News)

My dad was in radio, and my brother is also in radio…so, I guess you could say it’s in the family genes. I grew up around it and always appreciated the close relationship the listener has with the person in the studio.” But I'm not all radio all the time. I've volunteered with several charities including Paralyzed Veteran’s of America, Shiner’s Hospital and St. Jude Children’s Hospital. My wife, Melissa, 18-year old son, Grant, Jack (1) and the newest addition to the family, baby Max, are my world! Oh, our Shih Tzus, Lexi and Dallas, are an important part of my life as well. They get mad when I don't include them. lol
