15 Things Short People Always Hear
PoppyBarley

Growing up short means you're always the one who rides in the middle seat of the car, you're the one who's running to catch up with everyone else and you're always asked how old you are multiple times because no one really believes you when you tell them. Being the shortest one of all my friends, I hear many of these things daily.

1. "How do you drive? Can you even see over the steering wheel?"
