    My Mum just put a show about midgets on TV, so that's what sparked my thought process and me making this thread.

    I remember short people at school saying "I'd rather be small than tall, I like being able to fit into small spaces."

    Wtf are you doing with your life?

    Short folk actually ever said this?

    At my school they were too busy having the wind knocked out of them as they were jostled to the bottom of the obligatory daily 'pile on'.

    I definitely recall a few people saying it. Mostly by the smallest guy in the class whose surname was actually "Tinker".

    I thought it was a piss take for my first year.

    I remember people saying this in primary school, but I think they soon realised that there are very few moments in life where such an 'attribute' would be useful.

    I've never heard that before, maybe it was just your group of friends? I'm reasonably short for a guy (5' 6'') and quite like it really, but not for the reason you give (although as a Jiu Jitsu practitioner there are definitely some advantages to being able to take up a smaller area).

    Ignore the idiot. That was extremely rude for him to say.

    Well... eh, I guess low ceilings are less of a concern but I guess it's just the only thing they can think of to defend their height. Pretty poor defense but that's because as someone on here said, it's not like being short is useful for much. Except for that time I climbed into the gap behind a washing machine to feed tubing through the hole in the cupboard. But that's it. Rather than thinking of a crap defense, tell people who are mocking your short height to p*ss off.

    Yes. Being able to fit into small spaces is much better than being able to reach things in cupboards, the supermarket, clothes shops, and not being squished by tall people in crowds.
