Top Ten Most Annoying Things About Being Short
The Top Ten Most Annoying Things About Being Short
I am an adult and I am not only short but also autistic so everyone thinks that I am a 16-18 year old
No one takes me seriously at all! I'm 19, 5'3 tall, amd underweight. For some reason, people think I'm either 12 or 14 years old. The struggle is real! Even kids don't take me seriously! Hopefully this will come in handy when I'm older.
I'm the opposite. People mistake me for a 13 or 14 year old sometimes. - cosmo
Some people are really annoying because they think you're way younger than you are-and they only base it off your height. When people think I'm seven years old (I'm 14) it bugs me cause if you actually look at my face it doesn't look that young. My face does NOT look like a seven year olds. My friends parent is shorter than I am, and do you think she looks 7? No. - mpgami
This used to annoy me but now I'm flattered when someone says "24? You look 18! " It's nice. - Britgirl
It is quite infuriating when people laugh at you when you're actually trying to get a point across. Then you ask them why they're laughing and they say, "I can't take you seriously because you're so short! " - theevilsquiddancer
Oh my god yes! I'll get mad and they won't take me seriously so it's a giant snowball- I get mad, they laugh. I get more mad, they laugh harder. And so on - mpgami
For a 12 year old everyone says I'm pretty tall. - cosmo
This is really funny but awful to short human
I'm actually not too short but there's a really tall girl I know that uses me as an armrest and we laugh about it because even though I'm only slightly under the average height she's so tall that she can easily use me as an armrest - mpgami
To be fair, it's not like Ian minds. At all, actually. - Garythesnail
I wouldn't be able to tell you how many times people have done this to me!
If you do this, then just stop. Please. - theevilsquiddancer
I actually don't mind when someone calls me adorable. I like it. - Garythesnail
I wish people called me adorable. - anonygirl
Aw look an adorable smol bean - Tekiku
Not adorable enough that I won't rip out your eyes :D (Jkjk I promise I won't rip out your eyes! ) - theevilsquiddancer
Sometimes I have to climb on my counter to reach things on higher shelves in the cupboards. - theevilsquiddancer
Sometimes I use to feel very insecure about my height.
A guy called me midget for 2 years.
That stupid Height Hitler (A nickname I give to the bitchy popular girl that is tall and complains about how she "feels so tall" standing next to me). Good I moved schools. - Lunala
Haha on the rare occasions I lose my temper, my brother and dad say I look like a purple jelly bean and that make it worse! - Britgirl
You're so cute when you get feisty!
Proceed to rip off my ears. I dare you.
Also, Spencer, you're like, 5' 7". - keycha1n
"Though she be but little, she is fierce! " - theevilsquiddancer
If anyone even thinks of saying, "You're so cute when you get feisty," I will rip off his/her ears. (Jkjk I promise I won't... Maybe.) - PetSounds
I know this kid, Adam, and god you should see him run! One time I was bringing my backpack to class and I hit him with my elbow just by walking! He stared at me like =n= and I was cracking up. If you were there... - Magenta_Flame
But if it's on a horse ( professional horse-riding on the tracks ) it's an advantage to be short and light.
This is especially annoying if you play a sport. - theevilsquiddancer
Yeah..I play basketball so that's kind of annoying but fortunately I play guard so I'm not typically in a position to have to jump higher than other people to get rebounds - mpgami
This is why I'm terrible at gym. - Merilille
This is a problem for tall people as well. There just isn't enough good clothing of sizes which people wrongfully consider unnatural out there! - PositronWildhawk
Not as bad as looking down...
But I, as a quite tall person (well, I'm probably only tall compared to my classmates), have to look straight down... - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX
And sometimes I have to look straight down! Or bend down to fit in things! - PositronWildhawk
Never had that problem ( but I guess some people are picked up last ). As a matter a fact I'm really good at sports because I compensate my shortness with a whole lot of anger and energy and a great willpower to win and beat the others. So, even if I'm picked last it doesn't bother me. They will see the results and be surprised afterwards.
This happens to me, but not because I’m short, because I’m the least athletic person in the world - sadical
Most of the time a tall person will pick up a short person to beat him / her up because they think for sure to win and not to be hurt themselves. So, I agree that learning to defend yourself with martial arts is a good thing. Martial arts learns you how to make of your shortness an advantage. It also helps you to give you confidence.
The average height for Asian people is 5 foot. Learn like them kung fu!
Yes, it's true! Just look at YouTube where in real footages short girls ( mostly Asian girls ) kick their opponents who are trying to steal, rape... down in a matter of seconds. Learning to defend yourself is not only made for tall people.
I stood on my seat at a concert so I could see - sadical
So true, and when I find the shoes with the right sizes it's always one of this model of shoes I don't want or like. I can find shoes that I like who are fitting of course but it takes some time ( sometimes even a month ).
My shoe size is 5 and so many brands don't carry anything below size 6. It's really frustrating. On the bright side, I can fit kids shoes, so I pay way less for the same exact shoes, just from the kids section.
