Some urinals are not meant for men 5’7” and under.

2. Never being able to find dates on dating apps because people only date tall men.

3. When your girlfriend is taller than you and decides to wear heels.

You’ll instantly become a dwarf and she’ll become a giant.

4. Spending 10 minutes modifying your seat and steering wheel so you can reach the pedals.

9. Jumping up to try and reach the pull-up bar at the gym.

The height of these chin up bars is too damn high... Not ashamed to use a bench as a step stool... Shortmanproblems.

10. Never being able to reach far enough to hit the ball when playing pool.

Sometimes you just have to get on top of the table to get that hit.

Finding blazers that are 34-S is close to impossible.

12. You pretend to shop for your nephew in the kids section when you’re really just shopping for yourself.

It’s like buying fitted clothes.

For some odd reason the things you need will always be out of reach.

It’s a myth, people!
