Top 10 Most Annoying Things About Being Tall

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

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

I'm 192 cm. fortunately (? ), my bed's 6'8, 4.5 inches longer than I am

The beds are shrinking to fast,#SaveTheBeds - Nateawesomeness

Low ceilings

That would also hurt a tall person's back an damage their spines.

Ceilings turn into tunnels - Nateawesomeness

Blankets that are too short

What if a tall person gets cold in the winter.

When I visited CA in 2015 my cousins gave us blankets to use. I got a blanket that was intended for little kids/toddlers to use. It was able to cover me up fine. I had to curl up in order for it to cover me, though.

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

I will use it to avenge my chest,and only my chest - Nateawesomeness

Pants always seem to be too short

When I was 2 years old I was tall for my age and I wore clothes for 18 month olds which most 2 year old fits perfectly but the pant legs were too short for me.

Not a good sign of being tall.

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

Wow sets,these must be the skinniest jeans I've bought today m8 - Nateawesomeness

You have to look down at almost every one

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

That would hurt a tall person's neck.

Being 6'3 1/2 at 13 makes me look funny...

Regular shirts seem like crop tops

Regular shirts are NOT,the closet from the lion,the witch,and the wardrobe,and they need to - Nateawesomeness

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

The midgets must migrate - Nateawesomeness

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

When people ask things like "How's the weather up there?"

My short friend does this to me. - Pegasister12

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

It's fine up here! Just a bit rainy! How's it doen there? Is it raining too? Haha, hope it's not flooded! - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

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

It's a tall person's fault for being tall.


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

The Contenders

Leg room in cars
People call you Abe Lincoln
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
