Modern Manners in the Digital Age
Mister Manners Thomas P. Farley is here to talk about the modern manners one should have in the digital age, and stresses the idea of “People over Pixels.” He thinks that conversations should be done with people through talking and not texting. Thomas agrees with Cristina that bringing a phone to the dinner table is rude but points out that our attention span is so short that we need our phones on us at all times. Mister Manners believes breaking up with someone over text is definitely not acceptable and you should ask for permission of posting someone’s photo online before you actually do it. The important key is to be mindful of others.
