Had my boyfriend wear a full set of false nails after he couldn’t figure out why daily chores were so hard
A NAIL technician called her boyfriend’s bluff when he announced that wearing a full set of acrylic nails “couldn’t be that difficult.”
Caitlin Barlow, 29, needed a role model to practice her craft, so her boyfriend Chris Heyes, 35, offered his own righteous hands for the upgrade – not realizing what he was getting into.
She went easy with him with a half-inch nail set, but he was still unable to perform everyday tasks like scrolling his phone.
The eccentric couple from North Carolina uploaded a video of Chris unable to pick up coins he dropped and struggling to get his bank card out of the machine at a gas station.
Then Caitlin decided he needed to feel the full force of the situation and upgraded his talons to 1.5 inches, which meant he couldn’t even remake his own buttons anymore.
He was also unable to relieve himself properly with the new devices, shouting from the toilet: “Even grandpa could do it after having a stroke”.

Chris said: “It was like learning to walk for the first time. I had to relearn how to do everything. I didn’t realize how much I was using my fingers during the day.
“Having the false nails on my brain bypassed. The hardest jobs were the ones that are normally the simplest.
“I found it almost impossible to button a shirt, unbuckle a seat belt, getting out of the car was difficult.
“Trying to withdraw a debit card from any location was so difficult and it made me realize how much I take my fingers for granted.
“Fortunately, it was a day off for me because I would have broken every glass at work.
“Because Caitlin didn’t have the practice hand, I volunteered. I thought it wouldn’t be that hard to have long fingernails like hers. I was wrong.”
The hilarious clips of Chris navigating his manicure have been viewed over 13 million times with many women participating saying they can’t believe he finds it so difficult.
One person said, “You don’t understand. It’s short, how is he struggling so much?”
Another said: “Have him try typing on a computer keyboard. If he thinks the phone is bad, wait until he finds out.”
While the third said: “Great respect for his upbringing. Men have no idea.”
