Fears Only Tall People Understand

We all know that short people might have some challenges because of their height but tall people experience more than a few every day fears as well because of their height too.

1. Wrong Clothes

Finding shoes and clothes to fit you is such a chore when you’re tall. It can be expensive to buy. Also it’s time consuming to find things that will fit you and not be too short or hurt your feet.tall-people02

2. Bending down

Holding a conversation basically means you have to look down on someone. Literally. Bending down or craning your neck to be at eye level is not fun.tall-people043. How Tall Are You

You might as well have a name tag with your height on it. People never ask your name, just your height.tall-people064. Desks

The most dreaded enemy of all tall people is the classroom desk. It’s basically a cramping prison for tall people.tall-people08

5. The Weather Joke

Being asked the dreaded weather question, “How’s the weather up there?” I’m sure every tall person has heard this question enough times to take up a career in meteorology. It’s not funny anymore.tall-people10

6. Small Door

Walking into a room and the doorway is too low. Knocking yourself out in a doorway can be pretty embarrassing. Also having to bend every time you pass through that doorway.tall-people01

7. Airplane Seats

Without enough legroom, cramping is inevitable for every airplane ride. You may have to spend more money and upgrade to first class.tall-people03

8. Basketball Skills

People will assume that you are awesome at basketball. Just because you are the same height as Shaq doesn’t mean you can dunk like he can. A lot of tall people can barely make a layup.tall-people05

9. Finding A Mattress

Finding a bed that will fit your height is next to impossible. Normal mattress stores do not carry extra long mattresses, so online is one of the only options is you don’t want your feet hanging over the edge.tall-people07

10. Being in the way.

Nobody wants to sit behind a tall person at the movies or other events. Sure, you can see perfectly well, but you might get complaints from the less vertically gifted people who are behind you.tall-people09

11. Hugs

Hugging can be difficult too, especially when your partner is sooo much taller or shorter than yourself. You don’t always line up the best.
