It's a brand new day with the world at tracy's fingertips. Good morning, siri. Good morning to you, too. Her smart phone is her number one. It completes her. But how much is too much? Tracy's got a fear of being without her phone. I love you, siri. That fear has a name. She's not alone. 29% of americans suffer from some form of it. I'm sorry. I know. Okay. Geeze. Excuse you! Today we're at the omega diner in new jersey and tracy is playing a waiter more interested in her phone than her customers. What will people do? Guys, we need to start shooting. Sounding good? It does, actually. Soup or salad? Would you hold this for a second. Tracy fires up her wireless head piece as this family reads the daily specials. I told you I can't talk right now.

She's very new. You better tell her to get off the phone. When she tries to complain -- hold on. No, not happening. Did I mess it up again? Now her order comes in wrong. How much more will she take? You were too busy on the phone. I asked you to get off the phone so you can pay attention to my order. She was talking. Hold on. You need to stay off your phone if you want to be in customer service, okay? Let your boss deal with that. Can you text your order so i can make sure I get it right. Me text my order? She's had enough. My family and I have come here for years. She's got to go. I was patient at first but then I was starting to lose it because she was on her phone so much.

Before you guys eat, let me instagram this real quick. Can you put you hand like that like you're presenting the food? Tell her what instagram is. I don't care. I want to eat without you bothering us with your phone. What is wrong with her? She needs a mental institution. At times it seems like a comedy skit. I'll have an egg white omelet. Are you sure? Yeah, pretty sure. Oh, not you. Some people are tolerant like this woman who has to endure an unappetizing conversation. A horrible toe fungus. He had pus or something coming out of it.

Thank you, siri. Time to break this scene and this time I'll go high tech. Hello there. Tracy, can you hear me? Can you talk to my friend. Hi, what's up? Do you know that you have been on hidden camera as part of a tv show called "what would you do"? I'm on? How interesting. What would you do with our waitress?
