    All your friends are short, your walking along the footpath (sidewalk) and you get covered in spiderwebs, that miss them cause they are way beneath them and they cant see why you are waving your arms about trying to remove them.

    As a tall guy what happens to you all the time?

    when you walk under a tree with friends and you get all that shrubbery in your face, and hair, and mouth....and they simply keep walking b/c it just doesn't effect them.

    I get a huge kick out of constantly putting needed items on the top shelf and telling coworkers to jump.

    I hate telling all smaller guys that I'm not really a top.

    Most tables and counters are made for children, or so it seems...My back seriously starts to hurt if I have to hunch over and do dishes for a while. And you can imagine how much sympathy I get for that...

    I always tell them to bring their own step stool if they want eye contact because it hurts my neck too much.

    Haha reminds me of my first international flight. "Oh you're tall- I'll get you a ticket in the front of the cabin. Enjoy your flight." and then I'm put behind the bathrooms and I smell shit and artificial oranges for 8 hours straight.

    You got one advantage, in the wild you can pick apples and pears instead of having to climb a tree!

    At work they're always asking me to polish that little brass ball that sits on the top of the flag pole.

    I'm 5'4 so I can't relate. :/ At least you can reach the top shelf, something I struggle with.

    I am not tall...I probably should abstain from replying to the original poster, but I am on a roll with sharing my wisdom (or lack thereof) this evening. So, I will anyway: If I were tall and I lived in the same advanced society that I live in now, I would regret being so massive because the cost to maintain my massive frame (energy and food) would be far higher than necessary since all I essentially do is lug my butt and my brain from one office chair to another and have no actual need to maintain a massive build. But I am not, so I spend less on food, gas, drinks, and everything else. icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

    Hitting your head on the top hand railing on subways/buses and playing it off as if nothing happened.

    ... when everyone asks you if you play basketball.

    ... And when the old ladies at the grocery store approach you to get something off of the top shelf for them. Then they hug you. :-)
