50 Tall People Show Us Their Hilarious Everyday Struggles

Short people have their own struggles to lament about. For these height-deprived people, being tall is everything. But even tall people have their own height-related problems to share, as evident through these hilarious photos showing tall people struggles. Just like how short people wish to become taller, these ridiculously tall people also wish to become a bit shorter. You know what they say, too much of a good thing is a bad thing. While height is a desired trait and even a requirement for some professions, too much of it could interfere with our daily lives.

This leads us to think, what specific height is considered tall? If you always get your head hitting against ceilings or if you’re always mistaken for an NBA player, then you’re tall. If not, then you’re either short or just average. Now, if you’re wondering how it feels to be in a tall person’s shoes, let these funny photos show you. These tall people struggles will surely make you think twice about wishing to become taller.
