First off, 5'1" would be great! Second off, this is sooo
true. I cannot see over things or in crowds if I am not
front I walk away as I won't see it anyhow.
I have solved this problem by using grill pinchers to
reach the stuff at the bottom of the washer. If I am lazy
I'll launch myself up like in this photo, but the older I get
the less I wish to launch like this!
Once again, Yep!
In the house before the farm, I would lift one
of the four on the counter top to reach items in
the cupboards. By the farmhouse I decided no
more. I removed ALL the cabinets as I cannot
reach even the first shelf in them, so why have them?!?!
In the grocery, if Bill is not with me, I may end up
waiting in an aisle until a tall person comes along.
To all of you that have reached something from
an upper shelf in the stores for a short one...I thank you.
I hate asking but when I need something I ask!
Bill~You agree, right?
Highlight on the not unusually.
For me this is the pain that I get in my thigh. Since
we have these on our trucks, I do forget at times and create
Footstools are my favs and a funny thing happened to me at the DMV
in a previous state. I was told to read the vision chart and I told the clerk
I can't. She asked me if my vision was okay. I told her it was fine, but
I still could not read the chart. She asked me why, and I told her I cannot
see it as it is above my head! So in the DMV with the entire area filled,
she came around the counter with a milk crate and had me stand on it so I
could see the vision chart! I have never had that happen before or after this,
and I laughed as hard as those waiting in the lobby!
The last photo is my favorite and to my law enforcement family:
This is how things would be if I ever donned the uniform.
I'd be bold, yet one would still laugh.
For the record~kitchen chairs, the average couch, and most toilets are too tall for me and my legs dangle. If I visit your house and say I'll stand don't take it personal. At home, I have what I call my little people chairs which we found at a yard sale. I think that they were formal living room chairs for children~but I LOVE THEM. I also have my chairs at the table. They are normal for me so my feet don't dangle.
I am not a little person, but I am not close to the average height of women either. I am in the no man zone of no official title yet obviously no title either. Therefore my official title is Short to Bill's Tall.
As a disclaimer: I mean no disrespect to someone that may take offense to something I have shared. I am making light of my life and the humor I find in a world that is not often geared for me.
