Being 6 feet comes with its perks and can be useful in many situations. Whenever I see someone struggling to get some cereal from the top cabinet, I can always give a hand. If you’re tall enough and can jump high enough then you can dunk, and therefore be cooler than any short person.

You ever get lost in a large crowd? Well if you’re tall you have two advantages in that situation. You can be easily found because your head sticks over everyone elses’ and you can find others easily because you can look over everyone.

As a tall person, I love to impose my height onto my shorter friends by putting my elbow on their heads. It’s always fun to use people as armrests because it always seems to make their short heads hot with anger.

The more I grew, I realized how many vehicles aren’t made for us. Planes are the worst as a tall person because of the leg space being an average of 31 inches. Cars can be a whole different deal and are especially infuriating when you sit in the very back of the car and are forced to spread your legs out in order for you to fit.

One of the most frustrating things about being tall is the fact that clothing and shoes cost more for us than my shorter friends. I completely understand that with larger clothes means higher prices. But despite that I still get jealous when my shorter friends spend less on their clothing than I do.
