@ NKING1982:

With regards to adv no 10, we also have more room on planes. That is a great advantage, esp on long-haul flights. I'm speaking from personal experience. I was flying 13 hrs straight from Singapore to Switzerland and since it was an overnight flight, I was able to stretch out pretty comfortably and sleep. My friend who was 5'10" could not.

OMG these are hilarious and oh so true! I've experienced every one of them!

In regards to being closer to the ground...we don't have as far to fall. lol

And lastnite when hugging everyone goodbye....there were a lot of male chests the side of my face got squished into haha The muscle-y ones weren't that bad haha

Well you know there are also lots of disadvantages of being short:
1 when people use you as armrest
2 when the sun visor doesn't even block the sun because you are too short
3 you have to wait for someone to walk by in a store so you can ask them to get something off the shelf for you
4 you can't see anything when standing in a large crowd
5 when someone drops something and ask you to pick it up, because you are closer to the ground
6 when people hug you and your face smashes into their boobs
7 pant legs get tore up from dragging on the ground
8 having to jump to reach things
9 my 9 year old can fit into my flipflops
10 teasing me by holding something over my head (out of reach) and telling me to jump for it
11 Moving the seat all the way forward just to drive
12 Capris looks like highwaters
13 I can't see through the peep hole on my own door

I like your #4 advantage Nicole. I actually thought that when I learned to snow ski at age 51. I kept telling myself it won't hurt as much when I fall. I became the queen of fast get-ups that weekend lol

More advantages of being short:
1. We will never hit our heads on a ceiling or door frame, nor have to duck.
2. People might think you are younger than what you really are
3. Don't have to worry about "towering" over people if we wear high heels
4. When we trip, it's a short fall to the ground
5. Nobody will ask you to reach a shelf for them
6. Nobody will ask you to change a light bulb
7. We can still ride the kiddy rides
8. We have cuter nick names
9. Nobody can squash your dreams of being a jockey (lol)
10. We have plenty of leg room in a car
11. Some people are more apt to being helpful..... opening doors, help carry heavy items, offers to reach things higher up

I did find one so called "advantage" that bothered me because it's a total lie! "It's easier to find clothes that fit". Just because were not growing very tall, doesn't mean we dont grow in other places!

I was always the shortest girl in class up until 6th grade. (i was only one inch taller than her) then i moved and was the shortest girl again through highschool. Both sides of my family are very short.
