Why is it that tall people(6 feet and up) always say it's okay love yourself who you are when they don't know what it's like to be short. How about you walk on your knees all day then come back to me:x

Why in the world would you want to be tall? I enjoy having leg room on airplanes, head room in affordable cars, etc.

I wasn't being rude, I was just giving you an example of how short people can have advantages over tall people. Sorry if I offended you.

#18 Posted by Shake_N_Bake4 (674 posts) -

I think most tall people want to be short (like me, just because a lot of people are short, especially girls)

and most short people want to be tall

and don't make this situation all about you

your not the only person with problems (not that I have any)

I am 6 foot 3, and to be fair, being tall isnt that grear :P

My legs are very long, and it makes shopping for one pair of trousers a very lengthy process. It also makes long car journeys a pain.

I am 6'4 and would love a day in a short mans shoes:

I could walk anywhere without first having to check door height
I could live free of stupid nicknames like Lurch, Jolly Green and Stretch
I would not have to fight after spitting on someone and telling them its raining when they ask "how's the weather up there?"
I could sit and watch a show without the fear of being asked to get something off the shelf.
I wouldn't be asked to help people undertake physical labour cos I'm a "Strong looking lad".

Seriously, we probably say love yourself, cos we have to learn to early!

Sweet, I guess I'm not the only skinny one here :P I don't mind being skinny or anything, but when I'm able to feel the bottom/tip part of my rib cage, well, it's pretty bad. Needless to say, I don't walk around shirtless.

When I stand straight I can usually see some of my rib cage.. i don't think thats good...

Actually I do know how it feels as for most of my childhood I was always the shortest kid in my grade and sometimes the entire school. Finally in my sophmore year of high school I suddenly shot up to a mighty (well for my family tree anyways) 6' tall which, although not especially tall in my book, is at least a couple of inches past the national average of 5'10".

Hmm, I can't recall ever being made fun of because of my height, and I'm 6'5". I think most of my friends envy my size.
