All too often, ladies 5-foot-3 and under get the short end of the stick.
Whether it's being crammed on public transportation, condescendingly told how "cute" our emotions are, or just being unable to reach anything, life is hard for us hobbit folks.
But although we are small, we are mighty — sometimes, tall people just need a reminder.
Here's a taste of what we're tired of hearing:
"You can always take your jeans up an inch!"
Why would I pay $50 for a pair of jeans...then pay more money to have them tailored?
"You're cool with sitting in the middle, right?"
Contrary to popular belief, I don't always want to be treated like a human Tetris block.
"I'm gonna need to see some ID."
Doesn't matter if you're 25, 35, or 105, we get IDed everywhere. I didn't ask to be born a baby human.
*Bumps into you like an idiot* "Oh, sorry! Didn't see you down there!"
Trust me, I wish I didn't have to see you up there.
"Next time, I'll bring you a step stool!"
Or, you know, don't.
"You're so lucky you get to wear heels all the time!"
My cluster of foot blisters would disagree.
"It's so cute when you're angry!"
Don't you know dynamite comes in small packaging?
"So when are you going back to school?"
I graduated two years ago, asshole.
"You're the perfect armrest!"
I'm not an inanimate object to rest your FILTHY GODDAMN HANDS ON.
"Wow, I never realized how short you were!"
*Screams internally* *Screams externally*
*Picks you up without asking*
Don't. Just, don't.
