Happens all the goddamn time by polive Happens all the goddamn time by polive
Everyone should be laughing, because if you are tall, then you know what I am talking about here. If you are not, this is the kind of shit you do on a regular basis.

Seriously though, I might not really care as much as I have portrayed, but the situations are rather life-inspired.

Yes...Tall is a task and a half.
It's even more tedious when you're a girl, 'cause then everyones eyes are on boob level >.<
And they always need to comment....as panel one demonstrates.

. . . I'm short. Someone told me today that I'm smart because I'm short.

I wasn't sure how to feel about that.

It was something about how the smart has to travel over less area . . . but I'm pretty sure it doesn't work that way. It doesn't work that way at all.

Ahahaa!! xDD That's actually very accurate! I'm not nearly as tall as you, I'm more around 5'11", but that's still taller than most girls I know! :nod: I'm used to always being the tallest among my peers((this was especially true when I was kid and before I reached highschool))...so when I meet someone who's taller than me, I don't get mad exactly...but I feel like an important part of my identity's been stolen! DDx;; Or when one of my friends starts getting taller, I start feeling paranoid...and I start craving a growth spurt to keep them from catching up with me! :rofl:;;

As a chick who happens to be 6'2", I feel your pain. Luckily, my best friend's dad long ago supplied me with the snappiest comeback ever.

"You're tall, do you play basketball?!"
"You're short, do you play miniature golf?"

Actually, this goes the opposite way, too. At nineteen, I'm still under five feet tall, and I get the same "Wow, you're short!" and "My cousin has this friend who's two feet three billion milli-inches!"

(I am aware that milli-inches do not exist.)

... yes.

its exists under the new english metric system, created as a final compromise between the US and the rest of the world. This new system features such units of measurement as the centi-foott, Kilo-mile, and liter-gallon.

I have a solution! Either a) hang out with other people your same height, or b) Don't talk to anyone :D it works!

I'm at the opposite end. I'm short.

People are like "Oh, I didn't SEE you there because you're not TALL enough to be SEEN over this REALLY SHORT fence."

Yes. Just like that.

"Oh man, I left my keys in the house and I can't fit into my window to open the door. Do you know any short people?"
"Actually, yes. I'll go call her up right now..."

AND THEN THEY CALL ME.

True story, I kid you not.

I want someone to come up to me and say "Oh my god you're like the in between height! So medium!"

I'm not sure if I said you're tall when we first met. But things like this have to be expected for people can be masters of the obvious.

And then people see someone tall playing basketball and failing, and they're surprised. Hmm, yes. Maybe I should ask the next obese person I see if they sumo wrestle, if physical characteristics are the only thing that determine how good you are at any given sport.
