Every hug is awkward.

"I need someone tall to grab something!"

Low ceilings.

Beds are way too small.

Everyone hates you at shows.

You don't fit in foreign cars.

People think it's socially acceptable to jump on your back without asking.

Everyone expects you to be good at sports (but you're not).

You've never actually seen your face in a mirror before.

Long legs means naturally outpacing anyone you walk with.

The deep end of the pool always leaves something to be desired.

Long sleeves are never long enough.

And pants are always way too short.

People ALWAYS insist you've grown since you last saw them.

One size fits all never fits.

Everyone asks how tall you are.

You haven't been able to relax in a bathtub since you were 10.

Airplane seats are knee destroyers.

Your knees don't fit under your desk.

You can never hear people at parties.

Getting called "Jolly Green Giant" when you wear green.

Everyone uses you as a beacon in crowds.

You're always picked to be the goalie.

You always have to stand in the back of group pictures.

Or awkwardly crouch to get in frame.

"What's the weather like up there?"

Public transportation wasn't built for you.

You can't swing on swings.

People use you for shade or to block wind.

Your legs are always in the way on trains, buses, and airplanes.

It's always unnerving to meet people who are taller.

The points of open umbrellas are always right at eye level.

    You forgot:
    "They never have the shoes you want in your size."

  2. it's not easy for girls to be tall. I'm 5'11" myself and it is so difficult to find good clothing plus I can't wear heels beside my hubby :(

    Short guys are just fine. A nice girl won't care how tall, or short, you are.

    I’m pretty tall (6’3”) and i’d say the plus points of being tall WAY exceed the pitfalls.. short people are just jealous :D
