2. Even if you like it, you shouldn't put a ring on it

Sure, getting your finger stuck in a ring while trying it on in a store happens to people with normal hands too. But it happens to us routinely and it just plain hurts.

Pringles cans, tennis ball containers, pickle jars, crevices between car seats or movie theater chairs. You name it, we don't fit in it.

5. Bowling ball grievances

The holes are just too small. The only bowling ball with holes that our fingers almost fit in surely weighs 20 pounds.

6. Shirts with wrist buttons

There is a time loss that is incurred because of all the extra buttons that have to be fastened and unfastened to accommodate our excessive paws. That is time we will never, ever recover.

10. Limited crafting opportunities
