I always see the lists of problems for short girls (or as my best friend says, "vertically challenged") and while I can see the frustrations; I've never seen a list for the tall girls like myself. So I decided to make a list of the things that drive me super crazy about being tall.
// All of the cute dresses that would be an appropriate length for other people, barely cover your butt.
// You can't dry your clothes because you are afraid they will shorten/shrink
// One size fits all?? Lies!
// You have to buy all tops/dresses in a size bigger just so it reaches below your navel. And then it's super baggy because you are also thin. Boo!
// The "awkward lean/knee bend" you have to do in photos so everyone is in the picture
// Painting your toenails is a struggle because they are so far away
// No adorable rompers unless you enjoy cameltoe
// Long-sleeve shirts don't even make it to your wrist
// Having to wear undershirts with everything
// Not wanting to wear heels because you would be taller than your husband and look like a giant next to your girlfriends
// Having to slow down when walking with your shorter friends because one of your strides is 3 of theirs
// Boob-to-face hugs. Always awkward..
// You have bad posture from trying to appear shorter than you actually are
// Not being able to cross your legs under a desk
// Bathroom stalls that you can see over while standing, so you end up with really awkward eye contact...
// Stretching and hitting your hands on the ceiling fan....yep, it's happened
// Baths. There is no way possible to cover your knees and chest at the same time!
// Everyone says: "You must be really good at basketball". Actually no, I'm not...but I'm REALLY good at soccer, so come here and let me kick you in the head.
// The backache you get from stooping down to do dishes
// Not being able to lay straight on your bed so your feet hang over, making them fair game for the monsters to get them. True story
// Trying to wash your hair when the shower head is lower than you
// Trying to find a maxi dress that actually touches the ground
// Cramped theater/airplane seats. Do anyone's legs actually fit comfortably?
// Yes, the weather is in fact the same "up here". Thank you for asking
// Not being able to swap clothes with friends
// All shorts are "short shorts"
// You hit your head on your friend's chandelier/light fixture ALL THE TIME
// The hairdresser has to stand on a stool to cut your hair, even after lowering your chair as much as she could. Don't judge me! She was just under 5 foot tall!
Are there any other tall ladies out there?! Did I miss any??
