We know this is probably in the region of serious first world problems but tall people generally don’t seem to understand how difficult it is to be short. Here are eleven trials short people go through on a daily basis.
1. The Top Press.
Forget it, you will never get there. It looks nice from down here though. Now, where’s that chair that could possibly kill me?
2. The Top Shelf
The top shelf everywhere. That unknown land that you will never see. You will always need help, just admit it now.
3. The “Under the Bed” Reach
You always need some sort of grabbing device for things that are far away, you will never get there.
4. The “No Heels” Rule
Wouldn’t you like to wear pumps out and about to special occasions? Afraid not! You might as well get used to wearing at least a kitten heel, otherwise people will never see you.
5. The Bar Trample
Ever been in a packed bar where the bar people and everyone else are just stomping past you like you’re not there? That’s what it is like for small people ALL THE TIME!
6. The Endless Gigs We Will Never See
If you don’t get up to the front, you won’t see that gig.
7. The High Cinema Seat
There are certain cinemas you will actively have to avoid because if you go there, you will need a booster seat to see over the seat in front of you.
8. The “It’s Never A Short Skirt” Skirt
Short skirts are always knee length, you will never find an actual short skirt.
9. The “Over The Shoulder”
Since you are so tiny, people are more inclined to pick you up and throw you around the place, kind of like a rag doll. Sure, you only love when someone throws you over their shoulder like a child.
10. High Stools = Mountains
High stool, you are my Everest.
11. You Can Never Be Found
Has anyone seen the short one? No? Ok. let’s go.
12. Clothes NEVER Fit
Hi, can I just get this taken up? Yes, if you could take about ten inches off it, then they should fit on the leg.
13. The Entire Pool Is The Deep End
Not just the actual deep end.
14. The Waist View
Standing between two tall people is some kind of personal hell. Welcome to my waist.
