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
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.

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

2 Low ceilings

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

3 Blankets that are too short

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.

What if a tall person gets cold in the winter.

4 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.

It's even worse for me because I'm so skinny. All my pants are either the right length but too wide or the right width but too short so I'm constantly cold

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

Not a good sign of being tall.

5 You have to look down at almost every one

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

That would hurt a tall person's neck.

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

6 Regular shirts seem like crop tops
7 When people sitting behind you in class or at a theater ask you to crouch down because they can't see

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

The midgets must migrate

8 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.

Aunt: Oh wow you've grown so much since I last saw you!
Me: Oh Really? I think that's a requirement for a 16 year old.

This is annoying to me also. I'm 6 feet tall but literally everybody thinks I'm much taller (like 6'2"). Like I get I'm tall you don't have to remind me every time.

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

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

Probably not as bad as the weather down there.

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

My short friend does this to me.

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

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.

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

This is mainly a problem for parents with tall kids.

My relatives mistake me for 16 instead of 15.

11 Leg room in cars

I always have to put my legs up in front of me by my face at a table and cars. It looks so weird and embarrassing

12 People call you Abe Lincoln

At least he's not JUST remembered for being tall.

13 Being bad at hide-and-seek
14 Being asked "do you play basketball?"
15 People asking if you can stand up
16 When people compare you with short people
17 Having to get something off the shelf for other people
