If you're like the rest of the breathing population, then you are probably a slave to your smartphone.

In this clever short film called Pass the Salt, one dad decides to turn the tables on his kids, who are way too involved in their phones to pay him any mind while they share what should be a nice family meal.

We won't give away the funny thing he does, but let's just say that he uses a contraption that most kids today probably have no clue what purpose it serves (or served since no one really utilizes it anymore).

And while the kids get the message in the movie, in real life we can't help think they would immediately roll their eyes and post a tweet about how lame their dad truly is.
