Short People Problems

This is inspired by the myTake Tall People Problems that I read a while ago. I'm 5'1" by the way.

Short People Problems

1. There is a major height difference between you and your counterparts who are average height or taller, whether it's in pictures or in real life.

2. People don't take you seriously when you're angry because they think you're "so darn cute".

3. For every one step a normal person takes, you have to take three because your legs are too short.

4. Cooking is a workout because you can't reach the top shelves.

5. Doing the laundry sucks because you can fall into the washing machine and disappear to a whole new dimension.

6. When you go to the deeper end of the pool you're barely above the water level.

7. You can never see when you're in a crowd.

8. People like to use you as an arm rest.

9. Tall people don't always know how to position themselves when they talk to you.

10. The air up there is so much fresher. The world up there is so much nicer and you have a better view of things. The air that short people have to breath can be stuffy sometimes, especially in subways.

Yeah, being short is tough...

Now that I'm done ranting about short people problems. Here are some lighthearted jokes and memes about short people.

    Guys generally LOVE short girls.
    My brother and I average over 1 foot taller than our wives.

    Short girls can also ask for help reaching the top shelf, which makes her nearly irresistible to an available guy. Guys love to come to the "rescue" of a poor "helpless" female.

    (I thought everybody knew these things.)
    So, stand tall,... er small... and enjoy all the attention!

      I just don't understand how you have short problems :/ Like I'm 5'4 and I have average height problems. (I'm literally invisble)

      @MelaninDoll If a guy is under the average height, he can seem "less than." Though I think that some gals are giving me a "once over." Not sure though, might just be my wishful thinking, hence, me reading the article.

      Aww your a tiny man! There should be a movie called "Tiny man adventures".

  • 5d

    Short girls have "problems."

    Short guys have to come up with a reason not to kill themselves every day.

    I had no idea about much of this. Always good to hear about things from a different perspective, thanks!

    I had a very late growth spurt (I was 5'3 up until I was 14, and then 5'7 at the age of 16, not reaching 6'1, my final height, until just before I turned 20) so I can actually relate to this and laugh at you all because I'm free from it now!

    This is how it is from the perspective of a tall person.

    This was fun and witty! Great post! Believe it or not, tall people have disadvantages too. Its kind of nice to know that part of this is the grass is always greener on the other side. I couple of things I can think of that might help you to feel better. You can talk to children and relate them easier being of a similar height. I remember having a shorter person babysit me and I related more to them. You don't hit your head as much on things, it really hurts sometimes... and It's easier to find a place to sleep.

    Being a short man and being seen as a subhuman so you live your whole life alone and die a kissless virgin.

    omg I am so relatable to this. I'm 5'1 too so I know exactly what you go through. I laugh when I'm walking with someone, and I walk under a tree branch but the person behind me walks into it since they saw me walking under it and thought it was higher than they thought xD

    lol this is really funny (all the pictures you included)

    lol I grew up having close friends that were like 5'8 and up, so, I always felt not super tall. But then I also had friends that were like 5'3 and under, then I felt like a giant! haha. (I'm 5'7 btw) I feel bad for short people when it comes to counters and stuff, that must really suck. I'm also like really afraid of standing on stuff so...

      So I have to ask, are some gals doing this specifically? Meaning, in some of the workout classes I go to, the rooms have mirrors, and well, you get the idea.

      What's your height?

  • 2d

    I have tall people problems, I’m like 5’4 -5’5.. I wish I was short. Short people are so cute:)) I like the feeling of when a guy is taller than me because I no longer feel like a giant skyscraper.

      LOL Girl you’re just average. Tall is 5‘8“ + for girls

    • 1d

      @witches but I’m like taller than most of the girls at my school.. so I’m considered tall to everyone else lol. Even the seniors and juniors.

  • 5d

    I'm 5ft 4 and I don't feel short but people call me short. It's annoying because they always try to point it out, the people who do it are almost always same height as me or shorter and I'm not even kidding so I don't get it really. I think they want to say something else but use short as a diversions.

    I have long limbs, narrow face and generally built well proportioned still people are like, you just don't grow, so small and how they think I have Napoleon complex when I decide to reject their bullcrap. What I'm trying to say is I wish shorter or average size people would stop making a huge deal out of nothing.

    This is also why I don't days short men, they have low self esteem and become defensive over nothing because they believe the foolishness that shorter people are inferior. Maybe people's self esteem are so low, they need to give you a reason to find flaws in yourself.
