Of course, every short person has had the experience of not being able to reach a high shelf or taking some height-related joking from friends or co-workers. In some fields, being short is a definite disadvantage. For example, a short person has to be comparatively better at basketball or football if he wants to compete with taller players. Being short also can make it difficult to find clothes that fit properly since most clothes are constructed to fit people of average or slightly above average height.
