I’ve always seen Men in Jordan with the infamous long pinkie nail and I always wondered to why they have them, I thought it was a taxi cab driver specialty.
I always thought that they grow them to pick their noses (I threw up in my mouth a little right now just picturing it in action)
And then I came to Canada to find out that this phenomenon is not limited to Jordan only!
We have a manager (Yes. A manager who does not drive a taxi and who is in his late fifties) who has a long pinkie nail and one of my hilarious coworkers dubbed him “The Coke finger”.
This was the first time I learned that people use that nail to snort cocaine.
Since I always wondered why people grew that fingernail and to expand my knowledge base (OK it’s Friday and I am bored) I went on a google quest to find out why people grow it
OMG some of these entries are just tooooo funny!
First there is a blogger who lives in Honduras that posted about this issue. Apparently in Honduras there are A LOT of men who sport that long fingernail which resulted with her going on a quest of her own to find why. Fascinating read, hehe.
And last but not least the Urban dictionary confirms that people use the coke nail to , well, snort cocaine.
It’s funny how so many people are so interested in knowing why that nail is being grown all around the world.
