My dad is 6'2 barefoot and my mom is average height for a woman at 5'5. I should of at least been 5'11 but I somehow got stuck being 5'8 and 22 years old... My brother is the same height as me so how the hell did we both get stuck so very short? It's horrible because girls don't like short dudes!

You didn't get eff'ed over. 5'8'' isn't "short" by any means. The average is only like an inch taller. Also, girls won't necessarily turn you down because of that, in fact most probably wont. You just have to have other things that attract you to them. My dad was 6'3'', my mom was something like 5'7'', but I'm just a little over 5'9'' and my brother is just about 5'10''.
So to answer your question, Genetics, like Turbulent said. Nothing to be mad about, you are perfectly normal. Girls generally don't care how tall you are as long as they don't have to look down to see you...5
