    21 Things You'll Only Understand If You Have Large Hands

    Pringle tubes are the enemy.

    1. You've learned to accept small openings as a constant barrier in life.

    Not that you've ever stopped trying to reach those out-of-reach objects.

    2. Especially Pringle tubes.

    3. Typos are far too common a problem.

    4. Because keypads just weren't made for your kind.

    5. Or touchscreens in general, which makes clicking the wrong link a daily struggle.

    6. You might even find some computer mouses to be too small for you.

    7. If you're a woman, you've probably been told that you have "manly hands".

    8. And if you're a man, you've probably been asked if you have something else large.

    9. Then there are the gloves that never comfortably fit.

    10. Especially latex ones, which tear the second you try to stretch them down to your wrist.

    11. And when it's cold out, it's not like you can shelter your hands in your pockets.

    12. You're painfully aware of how your hand swallows up someone else's when you go for a handshake.

    13. And holding hands with an S.O. almost feels kind of comical.

    14. As do mirror selfies when your hand almost completely covers the phone.

    15. You discovered pretty early on that playing instruments can be incredibly difficult.

    16. Even something as simple as bowling can be difficult given how small the finger holes on the balls are.

    17. And taking up a hobby such as knitting or sewing is completely out of the question.

    18. In fact, pretty much all fiddly tasks are out of the question.

    19. It goes without saying that finding rings to fit is no easy task.

    20. People expect you to have a superhuman gift for carrying items.

    21. And when most people notice the size of your hands, they want to compare them with their own.
