Honestly, just get the hell away from my short face.

Nobody dreams of growing up short. It's just the hand some of us are dealt. It seems though that all the tall-ies of the world can't get enough of the same old jokes: "hows the weather down there", "need some help, short stuff". What a creative bunch the tall-ies are. 

Here are the 10 things every short person is tired of hearing. 

1) "I love how little you are. You're like a baby."

I am like a baby in other ways. Such as: I don't pay my bills on time. But I am not a baby height wise. That would make me a very tall baby. 

2) "Are your parents home?"

No. Because I live alone. Because I am an adult woman. 


3) "You must weigh nothing. Can I pick you up?"


4) "You must be a student. What school do you go to?" 

The school of get the hell out of my face. 


5) Your whole family must be short like you. 


6) *attends concert* *stands behind a group of Amazons* "Can you see alright?" 

7) "You make me feel so tall."

Glad I could help out.


8) "I bet you can't reach ___________" 

Yeah but I bet I can reach your face with my fist.

9) "You're such a midget!"
