Scene 214: Pampered Chef Party

I'm at my friend Vanessa's house.. she's having a Pampered Chef party. The soccer mom doing the demonstrations sees me and says:

Soccer mom: Do people ask you how tall you are all the time?
Me: Yup, all the time.

I'm thinking this is where it's going to end... I kinda have to give her props for having the forethought to realize that I get asked all the time. Good critical thinking skills there, lady. BUT THEN, with deliberate indifference to the conversation we just had, she goes ahead and asks anyway!.....

Soccer mom: How tall ARE YOU?
Me: 6'5"
Soccer mom: Wow, you're so tall.

Thanks for the update, asshat.

That's funny! The soccer mom didn't know when to quit while she was ahead:
just like people giving depositions.

The spouse thinks you're lame for using the word "asshat", he thinks it getting to much action.

I think it's still appropriate as long as you pronounce it "as shat" and not "ass hat."

These people usually don't say that sentence UnlesS they are going to ask your height anyway ... :-/ The ones not saying anything at ALL, are the real forethinkers *grin* and I use to realize that first a long time after we've parted... *grin again* If you showed up in court in a catsuit ;;) I can bet the old judges would get a heartattack! *lol*

I was reading your blog and just laughing to myself because I know EXACTLY what you deal with! I am 6' tall and almost everyday some short person will come up to me and say....WOW....YOU ARE SO TALL.....Do you play basketball?
So thanks...it definitely brightened my day.

Has your blog finally succeeded in getting the word out? Have people finally stopped harassing you?

 
At 6:58 PM, Blogger Cladeedah said...

Yes, absolutely. I told you guys one person's whining could totally make a difference.

Wow, you've gone harrassment-free for quite some time. I might have to hire independent contractors to ask you stupid ass questions.

I can sympathize. My wife, while not as tall as you are, has some of the same problems. She is 6', but as a Hispanic woman she is taller than most men, let alone Hispanic men. The comments are endless. SInce I am 6'4" we get asked about when we will be raising the basket ball team.

You should post more. Dig the blog. I'm 6'4 and the first question I get just about every time I meet someone is "How tall are you?"

Wow you're tall!! To which, I invariably reply "Sweet Jesus!! All these years and I never knew!! I just thought all you assholes were short". The end. The generally leave me alone at that point. So I feel ya. I am a little over 6'4 barefoot.

First of all, thanks for making this site. Us tall people have to be heard.

Do people think that because you're tall, and in my case also blonde, that you're also very stupid?? Why would they try and remind you all the time? I've even had people taller than me tell me I'm tall!

I tried the "I always thought the rest of the world was short" comment a few times, but people looked at me so hurt that I stopped.

Hey have you ever been to China? Pointing at tall people is the national sport there.
