I hate being short! I am 5'3". I am trying to decorate for my DD bday party tomorrow cause I wont have time to do it tomorrow, I hung up the "happy birthday" sign and some crepe paper. It took a lot of work cause I had to reach really high to hang it up even standing on a chair. I was so excited to be almost done, had only a few things of crape paper to do so I stand back and look and ALL of it is effing crooked or uneven! So I give up! I am waiting for my dh to get home and he can fix it then do the rest, he is 6'3" so he probably wouldn't even NEED A chair to do it. I should have just waited :/

Anyone else have short person problems?

My dad is 6'5" so yes I get mad at him for not giving me anymore height lol. My mom was only 5'2" I am taller than all my sisters. I think I would be happy with 2 or 3 more in!

Quoting Amybelle:

I was painting the living room a few weeks ago & because it was "my" idea, dh refused to help. I was painting blind around the ceiling (didn't do too horribly bad) because I couldn't reach even with the ladder. I'm also 5'3.

My sister does. When she goes out to eat, her feet often do not touch the floor while sitting in booths. Drives her nuts!!

Nah, 5'10" here.  

But I did have a sort of "short person problem" a while back.  I bought a house with a kitchen custom built to accomodate the 5' woman that had lived there for 25 years.  It was ridiculous, the counters were mid-way up my thighs and I was eye-level with some of the topmost shelves.

I'm 5'2. It's annoying for me to always need a chair to reach the top shelf in the kitchen haha

I'm 5'0", and have hypochondroplasia to boot--my arms and legs are proportionally too short for the rest of me!
