Being a short person is not a piece of cake. While everyone thinks you are cute and small, you actually have a hard time with people. For starters, you’ll never be taken seriously even though you are fuming with anger or irritation cuz you’ll always be ‘oh-so-cute’! People try to make you feel good by using phrases “Oh, at least you can fit into tiny space”, “you can crowd weave like a pro” or “thank god for heels, right?”, even when you don’t need them. You are the butt of all jokes and honestly, it’s just too tiring to listen to the same rant from every person you meet.
So today, we bring you 11 extremely tiring things that people say to short people:
1. “Oh, you’re so smol and cute”
No matter where you are – hanging out with friends, college or your workplace, you’ll never be taken seriously all because “you are so tinnnyyy” *proceeds to give a giant beat hug*
It’s great to hear it once or twice from your friends but ugh! it’s so exhausting to hear the same “I want to fit you in my pocket”, “you’re a perfect little pillow”. Umm, stop it, maybe?
2. “Look at those baby hands”
First of all, short people have organs which are in alignment with their height but they are not necessarily “tiny” or like a “baby”. This is stupid exaggeration which short people hear about all the time
3. “Do you need help reaching that”
“Can you reach that or do you need help” (points to a 4 feet tall object). And this is when people are not even joking.
Of course, I can reach that. And even if I can’t, I have my ways. So, thankyouverymuch.
4. ” How is the weather down there”
This is the most annoying question of the lot. Okay, even if you are the great Khali or Triple H, let me solve the mystery for you, the weather is same everywhere. Period.
5. “Oh, so you are wearing heels to look taller”
No, actually I wore them because I like wearing heels but thanks for reminding me about my short height.
6. “You make me feel so tall”
Cool story. Please enjoy your one minute of glory.
7. “Kaun se class mein ho beta?” *laughs at own joke*
Wow. This is the sort of originality that wins the Nobel, bruh. How do you manage to come up with such gems? Yes, I’m tiny and totally okay with it. WHY AREN’T YOU?
8. “I could carry you away in my bag!”
Really? Could you? Of all the quips in the world you think one where you joke about kidnapping me is the funniest?
Also, please tell me why that creepy thought even entered your mind?
9. “You finished all that food? Jata kahan hai? Itni si toh ho!”
Jahan jana chahiye. Do you need a biology lesson? Because what else could have possibly triggered such a foolish enquiry?
And quit staring at my food.
10. “OMG, you’re like a Hobbit!”
Yes, we saved Middle Earth. What did you do Sauron?
11. “How do you manage to find clothes in your size? Do you shop in the kids section?”
Well, no. I shop in the regular section, find regular sized clothes and make custom changes to make them fit. It’s annoying, but not as much as you.
