19 Embarrassing 😖 Situations Every Short Woman 👌🏼 Has Lived through 🌎 ...

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.

1. Getting Caught Standing on the Counter

(Your reaction) Thank you!

High cabinets are awful. What purpose do they even serve? Word of advice: always shove everything you never use in the high cabinets.

2. Getting Caught Standing on a Shelf at the Grocery Store

(Your reaction) Thank you!

High shelves, man.

3. Basically, Getting Caught Standing on Anything

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Maybe we should just start carrying around step stools and grabbers or something.

4. Drowning in Five Feet of Water

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Stop asking us to go in the deep end so you can laugh as we desperately try to tread water.

5. Trying to Climb a Tall Chair

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Or high-tops at restaurants. Or a large vehicle. Or a particularly tall toilet. You get the idea.

6. Trying to Get down Again

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Especially when both butt cheeks are numb and your foot's asleep.

7. How We Look in Tall Chairs, Period

(Your reaction) Thank you!

YES, MY LEGS DANGLE, ISN'T IT CUTE? I CAN'T FEEL MY FEET!

8. In Fact, Let's Address the Toilet Problem

Because the struggle is real.

9. Getting Caught in the Washing Machine

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Happens to me daily. Nine years together, Heather still laughs.

10. Playing in the Snow

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Not only is it embarrassing when your friends try to bury you, but your pants always get so wet.

11. Hugging Your Tall Girlfriends

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Even when you very much enjoy boobs, faceplanting in someone's breasts is just awkward for everyone.

12. Faceplanting in Heels

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Faceplanting in heels is worse, though. Especially since you're only wearing them in a bid to look taller.

13. Readjusting Your Car Seat in Front of Anyone

(Your reaction) Thank you!

HAHAHA, I KNOW, I HAVE TO PULL MY SEAT UP SO CLOSE TO THE STEERING WHEEL! Seriously, though, driving while short is so uncomfortable.

14. Taking a Selfie with Taller Friends

(Your reaction) Thank you!

They're hunching down, you're on your tiptoes, and everybody looks ridiculous. So at least there's that.

15. Getting Caught Looking into a Mirror like This

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Raise your hand if this has happened to you. Higher.

16. Being Used as an ArmRest

Not cool, tall people. Not cool.

Any pants. All the pants. The pants are all bad.
