Me likey! Now to get a kids free night.


Getting families to put down their tablets and phones and talk to each other can be hard, but one restaurant chain is trying to persuade them.
In a trial scheme parents willing to hand over their devices to restaurant staff will get free children's meals.
Frankie & Benny's said figures showing children want parents to spend less time on their phones and more time talking to them, prompted the idea.
About 10% have tried to hide a parent's handset to get attention, it said.
And nearly twice that many said it seemed their parents preferred to be on their phones than to talk to their children.
Over a quarter of parents admitted they checked their phones during family mealtimes while 23% did so while their child was talking about their day.

During the "No Phone Zone" promotion, which runs from 29 November to 7 December, Frankie & Benny's will give families a box in which they can leave their devices.

But retail analyst Steve Dresser wondered if it was a ploy to temporarily stop people complaining about the service on social media.

Simple answer, Steve. Talk to the server, or the manager.
Get the problem resolved, rather than suffer in silence and back stab later.
Better still, let the kids complain. They'll want them sorted asap.
