How tall are you?

It seems everywhere I go, I am asked this question by at least 15 different people. They don't bother to say Hi. Instead, they walk up to me and ask me "How tall are you?"

Most of the time, I reply with "Taller than you." Sometimes I ignore them.

Another one that annoys the hell out of me is when people go up to me and say "Whoa you're tall."

Well no shit sherlock. I think I knew that. It doesn't take a genious to figure that out.

Yes, I am a tall, skinny fucker. No, I do not like being told I'm tall 15 times a day.

People are morons.:happysad:

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww sorry for you tall problem forgiven. well i'm short, almost a midget, well not really but at times i feel that way. my 12 year old nephew is now the same hight as me and calls me shorty! punk.
i see your annoyance though, i'd hate that too. although, i'd probably have to say it once to you too. cause you are a tall fucker. how tall are your parents? my sister's BF the one who's 6'5" his parents are the same hight as me, and his older bro is a bit taller then him. i asked if they had a giant gene in their family, cause i find it strange that 2 people who are both around 5'5" had giants for kids. :)

I always get questions and comments about my name, such as: "Well, that's different.", "Your parents must not like you very much.", "Is that your real name?", "Isn't that a boys name?", or "Is that short for something?" Yes, it's short for something. It's short for Psychotic Bitch. Now unless you can think of something original to say you can either leave me the hell alone, or spend the next couple hours helping me scrape your eyeballs out from under my fingernails. :mfinger:

That sucks, Unforgiven, maybe people are just strangely interested in giants, just like they are with midgets.

The one that I always get is "Where did you get that colour hair from?" or "How did you get that colour?"

Hmm.. I don't know let's think, It just magically appeared one day out of nowhere! :rolleyes:

I have to spell out my last name when people ask me what my last name is. I find it speeds things up if I just cut to the crap and start spelling before I tell them my last name.

A name change is in order.

Unforgiven, shrug it off, tall boys are the shit. When I was dating guys, I didn't date anyone shorter than 6', and that was my absolute shortest. I tried a 5'11 boy once and it just didn't work out.

I find it's just easier to say "6 foot 2" than to get worked up about it. But then again, I'm the laziest of the lazy so I always take the easy road. I can understand the annoyance though, getting asked the same question all the time can get tiring.

I kind of know you feel..I don't get it all the time..but I'm 5feet.. or 5.08 something (155cm) and I'm 18, noones thinks that I'm 18, I don't look like I'm 18 or I'm not tall enough to be 18..I get really pissed about that sometimes..but those who are rude enough to ask howcome I'm so short I get really really mad and say something evil back..something like "howcome you are so ugly?" it always makes me feel good :happysad:

It's probably because his mum had an affair. :p

One of my friends is about 6'8" and only weighs about 160. You could probably snap him in half like a toothpick. He has to duck when going on busses and shit like that, but he doesn't seem to mind the occasional attention he gets from the ladies for it. ;)

Gotta be a red head. I get that crap all the time too. Along with what color is your hair? Duh...it's RED!!! When I was a hairstylist people would come in to get their hair colored. Ohhh...I like the color of her hair....well tough shit....you ain't gonna get it out of a bottle. Another one if who did you get your hair. I stole it from a slow running clown dumbass! "Here's your sign"


I'm short too so I get the "how tall are you thing" except what they really mean is how damn short are you. :mfinger:

I get the exact opposite shit. I'm 4"10' and people I've known for years still tell me I'm short like everyday. It's even more annoying when people I don't know come up to me. When they do, the sarcasm kicks in. Like a girl 2 years younger than me was standing by me and my friends talking staring at me. I ignore her, but then she has to go and say, "You're Short and yo're 13!" So, I flick her off and tell her "Oh really. I haven't notceid. I know how annoying it is.

I am 6' exactly, it's not to much that I get the "You're tall" shit alot but, I do get it sometimes.

But what I hate is, When I tell people that my name is Donald and they sit there and stare with this weird look, then they finally say "Your name is Donald?" They laugh and say "You don't look like a Donald." I hate it......
