Most Difficult/Annoying Things About Being Tall

TheCobainDomain
I'm 5'6 and in 5th grade. It can be discouraging being tall, but it can also be fun. Can you relate to this list?

The Top Ten

1 Beds that are too short.

Oh yeah. Glad this is number one. I hate foot-boards in general because so many times the beds their attached to are too short. - BKAllmighty

I currently own the largest bed my family could find. I still don't fit in it. - PositronWildhawk

2 Low ceilings

In my basement, I constantly hit my head on the ceiling, my ceiling is about 1 inch shorter than I am. - Catacorn

My head already hit a ceiling a lot of times. What's worse is, I have pimples on my forehead, so when my head hit the ceiling,it also hit the pimples, which hurts a trillion times more than stubbing my toe - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

3 Blankets that are too short.

This should be number 2 or 1. I almost can't wear blankets - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

This one and No. 1 are the biggest annoyances for me. - BKAllmighty

4 Pants always seem to be too short.

Out of all of the hand-me-down pants that my mother gives me, a couple of them are too short. - Pegasister12

5 You have to look down at almost every one.

I'm 5'7 and going into 8th grade. And I'm the tallest girl in the grade, I constantly look down at my classmates, and my female teachers are shorter than me. - Catacorn

I tower over most of the girls at my school. I'm almost 5'7. - Pegasister12

I'm average for my grade, I'm about 5'7 or 5'8. - Therandom

Midgets are fun to talk to - Nateawesomeness

7 When people sitting behind you in class or at a theater ask you to crouch down because they can't see.

THIS IS SO DANG ANNOYING! In class, 2 of my classmates that are shorter than me constantly tell me to move my body away - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

...Because little people like me can't see from behind you! - Britgirl

Then when I crouch, they still say "I can't see". So I end up stiffening my neck at the movies. - Catacorn

Probably not as bad as the weather down there. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

9 When people tell you that you're tall.

I'm 5'5. And nearly everyone in my grade has been telling me this lately. Most of the people in my grade are very very short. - cosmo

Somehow I'm 5'8. I get it I'm tall. Just. Just. Shh. - AnonymousChick

My reaction: Yeah, I know. (I'm 5'4, but tall for my age.) - RiverClanRocks

Happens to me almost every time. - AGK

10 You get overcharged at restaurants because people think you're older than you really are.

EVERYONE always think I'm older than what age I'm now. When I was 10 I went to a restaurant with my mom and it said that kids 10 or below didn't need to pay, but my mom had to pay because I look like a 12 or 13 years old - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

I went to the movies with a friend and it said the adult price is for ages 13 and up. I was eleven and got charged as an adult. - AnonymousChick

This can happen anywhere. I'm 12 but some people think I'm 14. - cosmo

This is mainly a problem for parents with tall kids. - TheCobainDomain

The Contenders

11 Leg room in cars
12 When people start to call you Abe Lincoln
13 Being bad at hide-and-seek

I always lose, because its not easy being 5'7, and the rest of your friends are all 5'2 and under. - Catacorn
