... when you find yourself at midnight saying, "Just another ten words and then I'll go to bed." And then you find yourself saying the same thing at 1 AM.

When you want to send an SMS in English, but to get to the English keyboard on your iPhone you first need to click your way through the Norwegian, German, Spanish, Catalan, French, Greek and Russian keyboards (and you are disappointed that Apple hasn't made the option of a Romansh keyboard).
