Growing Up Tall
If you haven’t hit your growth spurt, then listen up pal! There’s a few things you need to know.
I am 6’4″, and have been 6’4″ since junior year of high school. And yes, I know there are other people taller than me, but these are MY EXPERIENCES! So back the hell off.
To start, you’ll be asked to reach ANYTHING high. It doesn’t matter what it is. It could be dishes in the kitchen, or a picture off of a high shelf. Hell, I was even asked to grab a balloon that floated to the ceiling of where I work. (Granted, I did need a ladder. But still, no one else could get it.)
And DON’T get me started on if you work retail. If you work with various short people like I do, you might be called to many parts of the store to reach merchandise from high shelves. What am I, a human ladder?
Hair style and beard length are also features that you need to be aware of. If you enjoy growing out your beard like I do, chances are you will have friends that will call you “Wookie” or “Big Foot.” Right C.S.?
But if you can take a joke like I can, you’ll be fine.
Do you think it’s easy being tall? Having to duck under doorways and avoid ceiling fans? If one more person tells me “Wow, you’re tall,” I’m going to lose my shit!”
