Tall people know that they’re tall. Hearing a short person go on and on about their height gets old pretty quickly. After all, nobody goes on and on about how bald or portly other people are. It’s considered rude. Imagine if you were in a bar looking at someone’s bald head going on and on about it!
If you get tired of being polite next time some short ass remarks, ”You’re so tall,” go ahead and use one of our fun comebacks.
