Being short has its drawbacks but it's nice not having to duck under things (like when I'm hiking I can just walk right under the trees while some of my friends have to always duck). I also had a loft in my dorm room and could sit on the bed without hunching forward cause my head didn't reach the ceiling (whereas my roommate would hit her head all the time on the ceiling when she got up )
I feel like both heights have negatives and positives.

5'2. Having to grab things off high shelves in stores often involves me asking if I can stand on a nearby crate.

Being 6'10 I have seen that the basis of the two groups the major problem is that the world is made for the average person so the basis of our problems will be too tall/short for things. And as for being tall (which is generally seen as a positive trait) its generally okay if you have an area with enough room. I will say life is that extra bit annoying when you add on being left handed and tall, since barely anything is made with you in mind.

It gets really tiring having to touch your toes to use sinks and blow drying hand dryers in public restrooms.

I'm 5'8 1/2

I'm tall for a girl. I keep getting asked "how tall are you?". Guys get deflated when they find out I'm a wee bit taller than them. I feel people looking at the back of my head when sitting in class so I try to sink lower in my chair so they can see the board.. hopefully. Some sinks in restrooms are low and I have to bend over the sink to wash my hands.. after awhile your back starts to hurt. Then theres hitting your head on a canopy or banner cause you're too tall.

I'm just over five foot, so about 5'1" or 5'2" depending on who is measuring me. I am small for a girl. I can't reach the pedals when I learn to drive and reaching up for anything on the top shelf in a kitchen cupboard is nigh on impossible, among other things.

I am 5''7 and 16. So im pretty short.

The negatives for me are :

Not being able to reach things

I play basketball . So for me being taller would be nice.

I'm just barely above average standing at 5'8.5, so the tall find me short and the short find me tall...

I'm just tall enough to have some minor everyday annoyances but not long enough to have an advantage while engaged with tackles or to go up and get the ball in coverage. I wish I had a few more inches, well not that it matters anymore anyway...

Well you summed it up pretty much. - Also I can't reach the shirts I want in some stores, and chips for that matter. u__u
Cleaning is also a horrible task, when you can't reach.
SHORT PEOPLE JOKES.

My ego is too big for my body, which surprises a lot of people too.

I'm 6'3.

I get to see over people in crowds/queues

but

People ask me to reach stuff on high shelves in shops. I hit my head when i stand up on buses, I sometimes duck through doorways, people tell me I'm tall as if it's something I didn't know, and no leg room ever
