Texting During the Ceremony
We all know kids love to text. OK, so adults do, too, but we know when to put the phone away. If there were ever a time and place to shut off your mobile device, it's during a wedding ceremony.
Apparently, some kids didn't get the memo. We were at a wedding where a group of several children, each separated by a few rows, began texting each other. Every five seconds or so, the kids' various alerts would echo throughout the chapel, soon followed by shrieking laughter, obnoxious catcalls or shouted verbal responses. Sounds bad, right? Well, they started doing this when the bride began walking down the aisle and didn't stop until after the vows. The groom was so angry, he nearly started a fight with one of the kid's parents after the service, and the couple asked all of the offending parents and their children to skip the reception.
