Reader: Talking on a cell phone in a restaurant is as dirty as a diaper change

Stapleton Starbucks: Would you rather witness a cell phone conversation or a diaper change?
Alex and Ruth Burgos made big news after they changed their one-year-old's dirty diaper on a table at the Starbucks in Stapleton, as a (very) public complaint over the lack of changing tables in the bathroom. They didn't get much sympathy. Some readers wondered why they just didn't take it outside; after all, it's unlikely they walked to this location, so they could have done the diaper-change in their car. The brewhaha inspired Jenn Wohletz to come up with a list of four more things that people shouldn't have to be told were very bad (and unappetizing) restaurant behaviors. And perhaps that list was too short...

Says artcarmark:

Don't talk on your CELL PHONE!

I'm so tired of listening to people, at the dinner table, talk at peak volume into their phones. As if I want to listen to one side of a conversation that I care nothing about. Hang up and pay attention to the people you are with. If you have to take a call, excuse yourself from the table and take it outside. It's just common courtesy!


Is talking on a cell phone a bigger sin than changing a diaper on a dining room table? What bad behaviors would you like to ban from restaurants?

Please.  One activity could end up in the death of someone, particularly anyone young, old or immunocompromised, thanks to e coli contamination.  The phone thing is simply annoying.  It will not result in anyone's death.
