I had to laugh when I saw this article this morning. Seems some women are complaining about the iPhone’s design. Their long nails are getting in the way of using the phone.
Hmm . . . what to do, what to do . . .
It would seem to me that if long nails were a problem when using the iPhone they would also be an issue when doing other things, like putting on gloves while cleaning, washing dishes, folding laundry, typing up a memo, buttoning a shirt, writing a letter, getting the mail, tying a knot in the end of a kite string . . .
Perhaps this really isn’t an issue for the moms out there.
Be honest, when was the last time your nails grew-or were created-long and actually stayed that way?
I know! I know! It was at the birth of my first daughter over four years ago. I went in and had a manicure AND a pedicure right before she was born. It’s true: I can see the evidence on the video that was taken during her first few days of life.
Yes, I had great nails then. They were clean and pretty and rounded.
Now, not so much. I’m lucky if I can find a spare moment to even file them, much less paint them, grow them . . . three hours of washing dishes, scrubbing toilets, giving baths and submerging them in other water just doesn’t do well for growing long nails.
I could have them done, I suppose, but then they’d simply break off when I tried to wrestle the one year old to the ground when changing a diaper, or putting the bike seat together, or pulling the wagon or playing at the park or doing some other child-related task.
Oh, but I digress-back to the original point of this post!
Seems if long nails are causing a problem for these women who can’t use the iPhone that other things would create a problem as well.
So what should be done?
According to that article, one woman said that Apple really should have taken women with long nails into account when designing the phone.
