10 Problems Only Tall People Can Relate To

January 28, 2020

There literally is no easy way in life. Especially when it comes to body image. Everywhere you turn, people are always offering you unsolicited advice about your size, height, shape, even skin. And it gets really tiring. We came up with a list of the weirdest most annoying, and outrightly funny things that tall people can relate to.

1. Everyone calls you names like Agali, Tallie, Electric Pole.

And they actually expect you to like it.

2. You always stick out among your friends.

4. Everyone thinks you should play basketball.

They don’t even care if you are interested in the sports or not.

5. Finding the right shoe size or even proper trouser length can be a stress.

Because none of these designers ever think that there are tall people who need shoes and trousers.

6. If you’re a guy, everyone assumes that your ahem, something, is long.

Can’t I just be tall in peace?

7. This is also not excluded from the list.
