Here is why Louis CK quit Internet on his phone

Louis CK is a great comedian with a remarkable, often self-deprecating sense of humor. He's the first comedian to have sold out his Maddison Square Garden shows three times in one tour.

But even he can't deal with the constant distraction of the Internet on your phone.

And after catching himself ignoring his children during conversation for that one more notification or chat bubble, he called it quits. He resorted to some quite funny ways to restrict his own self from using the web on his phone, and even his own children helped do that. Take a look at the above video to learn the details and let us know: don't you sometimes also feel overwhelmed with the constant messages and notifications? And is cutting Internet access on your phone (at least for a while) a good solution?

Phones are VERBOTEN at the dinner table. We eat together as a family and no one gets up unless you're shi**ing in your pants. I'm old school, hell I'm just old.

I know people like that. If they get a text message around you, you become invisible and whatever story you were telling is dead. I do not consider these people close friends and never will. What makes it worse is you're telling a story, they get a text and start texting, then as soon as they get through they start talking about themselves.
