20 Photos That Prove Being Tall Can Be Extremely Painful


Being tall can get you a lot of attention and envy as almost everyone wishes to be tall. While being tall is a blessing it can surely turn into a curse from time to time as they go to settings arranged for average standard height. With great height comes great discomfort as a side effect of being more attractive than short people. While there are situations that short people can relate to whine all the time, tall people do have to face such tricky situations where they are the odd one out, embarrassed or uncomfortable. Born Realist has arranged a set of images for you tall guys out there so that you could share your pain with the world.
