In a world where our wrists buzz with constant notifications, one man decided to take a stand. Meet our 36-year-old hero, a self-proclaimed 'notification-phobe', who found himself in a digital dilemma with his wife. He loved his Apple Watch, but only for its health features, not the incessant alerts. His wife, however, had a special pass to his wrist, but there were rules... rules she couldn't help but break. The result? A modern-day marital conflict that's as hilarious as it is relatable. Let's dive into this tale of love, ADHD, and the sacred 'wrist privileges'. 📵💔⌚
