Being short is pretty awesome most of the time. You can fit into neat places, you're a shoe-in for the first few rounds of limbo, and people always want to pat your head. However, if you're ... oh, let's say 5'3" or under, you know that the world is made for taller people and you've probably found yourself in some awkward, embarrassing situations that nonetheless make other people laugh. A lot.
High cabinets are awful. What purpose do they even serve? Word of advice: always shove everything you never use in the high cabinets.
High shelves, man.
Maybe we should just start carrying around step stools and grabbers or something.
Stop asking us to go in the deep end so you can laugh as we desperately try to tread water.
Or high-tops at restaurants. Or a large vehicle. Or a particularly tall toilet. You get the idea.
Especially when both butt cheeks are numb and your foot's asleep.
YES, MY LEGS DANGLE, ISN'T IT CUTE? I CAN'T FEEL MY FEET!
Because the struggle is real.
Happens to me daily. Nine years together, Heather still laughs.
Not only is it embarrassing when your friends try to bury you, but your pants always get so wet.
Even when you very much enjoy boobs, faceplanting in someone's breasts is just awkward for everyone.
Faceplanting in heels is worse, though. Especially since you're only wearing them in a bid to look taller.
HAHAHA, I KNOW, I HAVE TO PULL MY SEAT UP SO CLOSE TO THE STEERING WHEEL! Seriously, though, driving while short is so uncomfortable.
They're hunching down, you're on your tiptoes, and everybody looks ridiculous. So at least there's that.
Raise your hand if this has happened to you. Higher.
Not cool, tall people. Not cool.
Any pants. All the pants. The pants are all bad.
I actually have never tried this and think it's genius.
