Top Ten Most Annoying Comments Tall People Get Told

If you're considered tall for your age, gender, and/or ethnicity, and you receive annoying comments related to your height, then this list is for you. I'm 5'4 1/2"-5'5'' (which is considered average for a woman), and have been since 6th grade. I used to receive those comments all the time from the time I was a 4th grader to the time I was an 8th grader. I'm a senior in high school now, and I still receive those comments every now and then. Though I do not receive those comments as often as I used to.

If you are short or average and have never been considered tall, then this list is not made for you. You will probably find this list annoying, and I do not blame you.

The Top Ten

You're so tall!

Tall people are giants. Off course they get told that.

5'6" isn't tall. It's just above the average height for a woman and shortish for a guy. I'm 5'6" and I'm not tall.

How every conversation between me and my relatives start

I am. I'm around 5"6

Do you play basketball?

I used to HATE it when people asked me this or something related. Especially because I hate basketball (to play, I mean, not to watch).

I've been asked this all the time :p
i'm 192 cm and 18 years old, with size 15 feet (also called sasquatch)
not a basketball player though

You're taller than me. Did you know that?

I'm taller than my best friend and she's older than me by 9 months.

Can you help me get this item down? You can reach it better than I could.
How's the weather up there?

Annoying short person: How's the weather up there?
Tall person: how's the weather down there?

The taller you are the colder it is and the smaller you are the warmer it is

€It’s great actually, what’s it like DOWN IN THE GUTTER? ”

You look taller now than you did the last time I saw you.

Not even joking I get this once a week.

(if you're a tall female) Are you a man or a woman? I can't tell.

It looks like a man if a tall woman has larger hands, larger feet, larger ears and a larger nose.

This makes me feel kinda bad for tall females.

Tall men should also get told this comment!

That is very sexist towards every tall females. Why can't a man get told the same thing like that? 😠

Why are you wearing heels? You're tall enough already.

That's if you're also a female.

Do you want to stand back-to-back?
Get away from me! You make me feel too short!

Yep. That happens. A LOT.
