I’m 6 foot 8 inches tall and everytime I go out someone asks me about me height and only my politeness is keeping me from using my particular brand of sarcasm. Here are some of the questions I get asked along with a answer I’d like to use.
You’re tall aren’t you?
Response: Am I? You have literally changed my life with your astute observations.
What’s the weather like up there?
Response: The same as it is where you are, I’m only a foot taller.
Do you play basketball?
Response: Yes, for that is the sport of my people!
How tall are you?
Response: Tell me complete stranger how much do you weigh?
You’d be good at cleaning my ceiling.
Response: And you’d be good at cleaning my shoes.
Can you stand next to my short friend/family member?
Response: Yes lets inconvenience and potentially embarrass two people at once.
Can you sit down so I can see?
Response: I feel for you but if I sit down I won’t be able to see over the standing people in front of me. Why don’t you stand on your chair.
Funny thing is if I used these responses they’d look at me like I’m the one who is rudely commenting on a complete strangers height.
