We. Don’t. All. Play. Basketball.

1. “How tall are you?”

How you want to respond: Thanks for asking, Complete Stranger! Do you mind if I ask how much you weigh?

2. “Are you really that tall?”

How you want to respond: No. I was totally lying to you earlier.

3. “How’s the weather up there?”

How you want to respond: Exactly the same as it is a foot below me where you are. Weather does not work like that.

4. “Are your parents tall?”

How you want to respond: Maybe yes, maybe no, maybe why should I tell you my genealogy?

5. “Can you move to the back for this group picture?”

6. “Can you wear heels?”

7. “How tall is your girlfriend/boyfriend?”

8. “Can you stand back-to-back?”

How you want to respond: Sure! Let’s inconvenience two people right this minute to satisfy your curiosity.

9. “Stand up straight so I can see how tall you are.”

20th Century Fox Television

How you want to respond: That’s more of a command than a question, really. Also no.

10. “Are you a model?”

How you want to respond: This was flattering the first time, but it got really old on the second through one-thousandth time.

11. “Did you get taller?”

Warner Bros. Television / Via persephonemagazine.com

How you want to respond: Didju shrink?

12. “Do you have to duck?”

Warner Bros. Animation / Via gifatron.com

How you want to respond: Until The Man changes this vertically-inaccessible infrastructure, then yes. I lead a hard life.

13. “Can you move? I can’t see.”

WingNut Films

How you want to respond: This is legitimately unfortunate for you, but seeing as I can’t shrink on command there’s nothing I can do. Deal with it.

14. “Can you move your seat up a little more?”

How you want to respond: Not without driving my knees through my chest cavity I can’t.

15. “Can you reach that for me?”

HBO / Via fanpop.com

How you want to respond: Yes, but if I do this for you, you’re forever indebted to me. Do you really need it that bad, Shrimpy?

16. “Where do you shop?”

HanWay Films / Via yeahmovietime.tumblr.com

How you want to respond: I climb up a beanstalk and browse the big and tall store in the clouds with all the other giants.

And the worst one of all…

17. “Do you play basketball?”

How you want to respond: With the fire of a thousand suns.
