Anyone wish they were tall?

I am 5'2 and I work with alot of people who r tall. I always have to watch out for other peoples elbows!!! I am tired of people bumping into me and bumping me with their elbows. I wish they would look where they r going!!! When it comes to having to climb for everything,I really sometimes wish I was taller.

  • No. I like being short. I especially like standing in the aisles at Kroger and Walmart, looking pitiful, until some person comes along who is tall enough to reach the item I need that's not only on the top shelf, but is pushed just far enough toward the back that I can touch it but couldn't pick it up if my life depended on it.

  • Hello , being tall isant all that , truly . I am 5' 9" and have a 35 " inseam so its real hard to find jeans long enough and as for a long sleeve blouse forget it never can find sleeves that are long enough . As for your coworker they must be very rude people , i have not had any problems being around people shorter then myself . For them i am so sorry they put you throw that .
    I have always wish i was shorter , so go figure , tall people wish they could be shorter and short people wish they could be taller . Kinda funny when you look at it that way .

  • I'm 5'7, I'm pretty happy with my height. It's funny, many of the ladies I know that are short want to be taller, and the taller ladies want to be shorter.

  • I know right!!! I look pitiful at work and I will say loudly"I need a tall person over here"!! They ignore me then I have to call out a name for someone to come!!! I used to wear heels all the time,then I needed 5 foot surgeries!!! Must be nice to be 5'8" and not have to climb!!!! Lucky!!!
