In my teens, I was average height – 5 feet 2 inches. Unfortunately the world has grown around me, and I am told that I am short and the average height for a woman is now around 5 feet 5 inches.
Fine! But why has the world changed to suit all these giants and does not accommodate those of us are now deemed to be midgets?
Today Bearsy and I went out for lunch. I went to pay the bill and could not reach the counter let alone the credit card pay-thingy… even standing on tippy-toe. Fortunately, I had sufficient cash to pay the bill.
Progress is one thing, but those monsters of 5 foot 5 inches plus could manage with lower counters, whereas we smaller mortals could do with a little more consideration.
