complaints of a tall person
I have a couple of complaints to vent concerning clothing stores, bathrooms, and travel.
How many times have I gone to the dressing room to try on an article of clothing to find that the top of the door comes to the middle of my chest. TJMAXX!!! Especially the co-ed changing rooms!!!
Bathrooms: (the real sort ... with the tub and shower)
Why must people insist on constructing bathrooms where the shower head is positioned to spray on my neck? No joke. I have actually had to get on my knees a couple of times to wash my hair! and TUBS!!! The idea of relaxing baths are foreign to me! I can't do it. Am I really supposed to fold my limbs inside such a small rectangular box to cleanse myself?!! Where is all the comfort and luxury people suggest comes with taking a bath?!!
Also ... since some of you mentioned toilets earlier ... what's with the compact toilet stalls where one's knees touch the door?!!
Once upon a time I curled up rather nicely in an airline seat to snooze the long hours away. But now ... next to impossible to sleep. I make a point of asking for aisle seats for the little bit of extra space i can get by stretching one of my legs out into the aisle. But as the flight attendants come clunking down the aisle with their beverages ... BAM! ... yet another bruise to trophy on my lower limbs. I believe exit rows ought to be reserved for tall individuals.
(picture of Tall Girl, Seattle, dressing room. Yes, those are leather pants! ... No, I didn't buy them ... I couldn't zip them up. Ha. Did you know my MOM has black leather pants?!! hmm ... maybe you didn't want to know. Forget I said anything.)
