I know you have seen the signs at different banks, retail locations, etc where they ask you to stop your cellphone conversations to do your business.
I just took my daughter to the pediatrician and I SWEAR they had one of those in the waiting room. It not only ASKED but said your usage would result in canceling the APPOINTMENT.

I just could not believe that people have to asked not to fiddle with their phone when they are taking their kid to the doctor!
But that's the world we live in now apparently.
