Whether you are always on your tippy toes or ducking under doorjambs, unusual heights can be pretty challenging to deal with. As a very tall person, you are just trying to get through your day without hitting your head on the car roof or stairwell. As a short person, you are hoping no one puts your favorite mug up on the top shelf or uses your head to lean on.
When you have an unusual height, people love making jokes at your expense! Whether they call you "Stretch" as you shake their hand or they belittle you as adorable and cute, you have to deal with a whole script of unoriginal teasing with your close friends and complete strangers.
However, being of average height, right around 5'7'', is really nice. Counters are the right height for cooking, your pants are always at the right length when you try them on, and your friends never pick on you for your height. Even your sleeve lengths are fairly easy to find. There are so many ways going unnoticed that your average height is perfect for everyday life.
The world is designed for 5'7'' people! Can we guess if you are taller or shorter than this height?
