Learn about our Editorial Process Updated on 09/30/19 It's not always easy to look unique in a cookie cutter world. Once those awkward puberty years come and go and we finally stop growing, many people discover that their bodies have not turned out quite as they expected. Very tall people often wish they were slightly shorter so they can fit into vehicles and blend into crowds a bit more easily; short people tend to wish they were taller because they feel they don't get the same level of respect as taller folks. Basically, no one is ever happy, but we all learn to make the best of the cards we're dealt. People who are under 5'5" congregate on Reddit's r/short to commiserate over people making rude remarks, dates shutting them down because of their height, and other funny yet infuriating aspects of being "fun sized." Here are a few of the funniest short people memes that anyone who's ever had to ask for a boost will find both relatable and hilarious. 01 of 25 To Be Honest, She Deserved That Via Reddit Best comeback ever!
