I'm over 6 foot and connected with someone last night over the fact we're both tall and kinda want to know other people's views on it... If ive forgotten anything in the polls please let me know and I'll add it
That's a good point and I completely forgot about that, I'm exactly the same with long ass legs and short torso so sometimes I have to buy clothes that are a few sizes too large just so it hangs lower and covers me properly...I'm tall (6'1") and quite disproportionate (long legs, slightly less than average torso) and for me, it's being disproportionate that's sometimes annoying, mostly with clothing where if the dress/trousers/jeans are long enough, the torso is way to long and ill-fitting, or vice versa, because the industry mostly scales torso and inseam together rather than separately. I have all my work clothes tailored because of it.
It's also annoying when it comes to driving - driver's seats move back only so far and that eliminates a lot of vehicles. No matter what I fit into, I have to drive in flats or sneakers which means if the occasion requires heels, I have to bring them rather than wear them.
When I had my kitchen remodeled several years ago, I asked the contractor to add 4" to the cabinet/countertop height. Finding one willing to do that was a challenge but I'm glad I was able to do so. Much more comfortable to prep and cook while not hunched over.
Fuck... I can't edit the answersThat's a good point and I completely forgot about that, I'm exactly the same with long ass legs and short torso so sometimes I have to buy clothes that are a few sizes too large just so it hangs lower and covers me properly...
I was going to add fitting into cars but I felt that counted as being feeling cramped in spaces most people would be fine in but am wondering if I should change it
Changed.Can we change "requiring more alcohol to get yourself drunk" too "having trouble finding clothes that fit" please :3
One thing is to change the possibilities you can choose from another thing is whether you can later change what you picked the first time.What do you mean?? I thought I already was able to edit the answers but now I can't for some reason
Do you reckon I should allow people to vote for more than one?? Cause I'm torn between clothing and cramped spaces so I was wondering if I should make 2 selections or somethingWe can change our votes, yes. I just did and chose the clothing one in place of cramped spaces.
Honestly yea, being tall is over rated... It does have its perks though
Oh! That just reminded me of another problem. Living in a house with plaster ceilings, mine has those "artsy" star shaped swirls in them that many houses have. But if I'm not careful while changing my shirt or stretching, I've cut open my knuckles on more than one occasion hitting the ceiling.but the real problem is hitting the blades with my arm if I'm changing shirts while standing close to one
I didn't even think about that one. Worst is when you're standing slightly off from the fan and your wrist hits the tips of the blades.Every time I stay somewhere new, I have to pay attention to where the ceiling fans are. I've bumped a couple of the lights on lower ones before, but the real problem is hitting the blades with my arm if I'm changing shirts while standing close to one!
