Just because I'm tall doesn't mean I'm athletic, OK?

Never heard that one before!

Where's my head?

I'll give you $20 if you let me sit in the emergency exit. PLEASE. This isn't fair.

I just want to cross my legs.

Forever without a forehead. :(

And still being taller than everyone in the room.

Ugh, get a ladder.

Please, don't ask me to sit on your lap.

26. The awkward knee bend necessary to fit in photos.

Please hurry and snap the picture.

Rocking crop tops since '93.

Stop laughing. That hurt.

30. Trying to hug.

Annnnnnnd that's my boob in your face.

31. Getting a pedicure and literally never fitting in the chair.

Can't hear a word the pedicurist is saying because they are now so far away.
