Worst Things About Being Short

Don't get me wrong. There are disadvantages to being tall, as well as advantages to being short. However, many people (especially women) would love to be taller than they are. The reasons listed below could be the reasons why they want to be taller.

I am a 5'5'' female, which is average for a woman in the Western World. Sometimes I feel like I'm too short, but other times I feel too tall.

I am sorry if you did not enjoy this list, but I created it because many women complain about being too short.

Note: You could definitely counter-argue these and say that being tall sucks because people ask you how tall you are or that pants are too short for you. Lots of times, I feel too tall as well.

The Top Ten

1 You can't see something over a tall person's head

If you were at a movie theater or a concert, you can't see the singer at the concert or the movie screen at the movies. - anonygirl

And it also gets annoying when shorter people behind me keep telling me to move away - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

2 You cannot reach high places

I’m so short I have to climb the shelves!

3 If you gain even 1 pound, then everyone notices
4 Most pairs of pants are too long on you
5 People can be intimidated by your own strength

What I mean by that is other people thinking that you cannot kick someone's butt or do tasks yourself. - anonygirl

6 Being called a dwarf or a midget
7 Unwanted pats on your head
8 Being asked how short you are

That's a really mean thing to do to someone. Nobody do this. - TwilightKitsune

9 Some people treat you like a child

Stop acting like I’m an adorable 6 yr old child

I've found this. I'm 5' 2" and some people talk to me as though I'm a little girl or treat me as though I'm fragile and I'll break if they touch me. I don't mind a lot of the time because my height makes me look younger. But I'm a woman! Treat me like one, please! - Britgirl

I knew you would comment here, Britgirl! I really enjoy talking seeing your posts! - anonygirl

By some, I don't mean a few. - anonygirl

10 (if you're a guy) possibly having to deal with your wife/girlfriend taller than you

I'm growing so tall, I'm taller than some of my school teachers. In a few years I'll be taller than my dad. - TwilightKitsune

The Contenders

11 Being compared against taller friends

Happens to me my younger friend is five inches taller
