This is a thread for your daily height-related problems. Short and tall people are both welcome.

I'll start: knee-level bathroom sinks.

When I was in China I had to duck to get past a good 80% of all of the doorways. I understand space is tight, but 6 foot doorframes just sounds like a terrible idea.

Over 6' + good posture = car rides in the back seat suck

I've hit ceiling fans so many times by stretching or putting on shirts.

not being able to take full advantage of kitchen storage—can't reach the top shelves even with a stepstool :( I do jump up onto the counters sometimes.

I'm not really incredibly tall but being 5'8 in a large group of 5'2 asian girls makes group photos very awkward. Do I squat down? Do I stand in the back? Or do I stand on the side and sorta lean in towards everyone?

What's the worst to me is being at a party or something and not being able to hear anyone you're with because they're all 5'3". I usually just give up and pay no attention to conversation.

Buying extra-long custom beds. With custom fitted sheets and custom mattresses.

(Non-custom double-sized comforters and comforter covers are long enough, though.)

@ratchetkoala: 6'. I like having a footboard, though. Also not accidentally hitting said footboard while having my arms above my head.

@jrisk: I wish that worked; I'm just too wide and flop around too much.

I didn't care about posture until my early mid 20s but really wished I did while growing up. Really important for physical health and just looking better in general. Easy to slouch when you've had a big growth spurt when younger.

when your abysmal self esteem/body image may or may not be a result of the systematic social dehumanization of short male-bodied people that you've dealt with your entire life and results in being condescended to like you're a child/rampant body-shaming/a reduced likelihood of ever being taken seriously

when I was seeing pediatric oncology for my yearly checkups up until last year, I could not comfortably fit/lay on the examination bed. I almost broke the computer screen stretching out my legs

I switched to the young adult survivorship clinic and it is better

Couldn't reach things well before but now post-surgery I can't lift my arms above my head. Literally needed help getting a ginger beer out of the fridge today.
