Given the time many spend in airport lounges it really isn’t feasible to ban telephone calls.

OK, let’s be more realistic.

Upon entering the lounge, when you present your boarding pass you are given two options by the ‘lounge-dragon’:

1) Swap your phone for a 50,000 volt tazer
2) Keep your phone

Those who go for option two are indeed allowed to make and receive telephone calls, but should they do so withing earshot of those passengers who have plumped for option 1, the option 1 brigade are at liberty to taze the obnoxious-phone-using-goofball-who-is-far-too-full-of-their-own-self-imprtance-and-clearly-has-been-dragged-up-with-no-manners-or-class-whatseover.

You would of course need to sign a disclaimer upon choosing option 2 that it is highly likely your lounge experience might leave you feeling slightly more drained than normal.

I think I might be onto something, can someone mention this to WW during their one-to-one seminar(s) with him at The no-Taste-of-Food event?

Thanks in advance.
