I feel so naive and clueless!

So yesterday I gave myself a manicure. My pinky nails looked so nice and long and straight I hated to cut them--so I didn't. Last night at the BBQ my 33 year old daughter pulls me over to the side and said to go cut my pinky nails. I asked her why. She said that it was one sign of a coke user, they use the pinky nail to scoop up cocaine to snort it. KK I never knew this, although admittedly I don't hang out with known drug users. Have you heard of this or am I just old and out of it?

  • I've heard it, but if you like your nails long who cares? I don't think most people would see you and think "coke user."

  • Wow, that's strange. I have many drug abusing friends and I never knew that. You learn something new every day!

  • The coke users are obvious because all or thier other nails EXCEPT for their pinky nails are cut down to the nub.

    Thier pinky nails are left long so they can do exactly what your daughter said, but realize thier other nails are cut ALL the way down so they won't get anything under any fingernails but thier pinky nails.

  • Sure did know that, but the new drug users have "bullets" that let them snort a line without using fingers...just tote it around in their pockets.

  • yup, I'm old and don't use drugs but even I knew that

  • I honestly didn't know that either. Most of the people I know who use that stuff use a hollowed out ink pen to do it. I guess you learn something new everyday.
