    Thanks so much for posting this! I just got into a big fight with my best friend. She never puts down her phone when were hanging out and I’ve tried talking to her about it but she never thinks she’s doing anything wrong. She says that everyones doing it so it’s ok. Its hard to make her see my point of view, and your tips really helped. I’ll probably even show her your video and hopefully well patch things up soon. Thanks for the support and advice :)
