Cute story, STAR!

I'll start copying some phrases made by a newscaster who enjoys kidding his co-worker on a show called "The Five." He is short and funny, too. He makes comments about Dana Purino:
"She skis on a tongue depressor." Everyday is a new joke...we all crack up.

Then there are those who use you as a Chin rest ...

The second X and I were at a Sci-fi convention. There was a lady in costume who was 6 foot tall in her stocking feet, and she was wearing stilettos! emoticon
At some point in the conversation, he said, " She makes a good Chin rest!"
She looked Down on my 6 foot X, and said, "So Do You!" emoticon

I have never forgotten this, and wherever she is, she is, unbeknownst to her, still my friend!!! emoticon

I have regularly climbed up the shelves to get items. I do not even bother looking to see if anyone is nearby, i do not care if they see me.

I will also just be jumping in the middle of the aisle trying to see if the thing I want is pushed back or something before i start the climb.
I have had tall people walk buy, grab something and hand it to be before I got enough jumping height to see if it was up there.

Ahaha, I've been known to use something like a box of spaghetti to knock what I actually want off the top shelf at the grocery store. Glad I'm not the only one! emoticon

OMG: I laughed my butt off at these; they are all so true. My biggest problem is reaching things at the supermarket. They put all the best stuff on the top shelf. So I always look around to see if there is a "friendly looking" tall person around (which is extremely rare), second thought: does this bottom shelf look like it can support my weight?, third thought, what other items are around that i could use to nudge the item off the shelf...then I have to try to catch it before it comes tumbling down on my head, lol....

I find petite sizes at JCPenney, Kohl's, Belk, Coldwater Creek...
If it's petite, I am usually going to be able to use it. Sometimes active wear is labeled "Short."

I can certainly relate to many of these "problems". For me, the biggest problem is finding clothes in Petite sizes!

Little Lady and Propman...I so hear you!!! Both actions have happened to me!

One thing I have to say...back in 2012 a few Retail establishments...Banana Republic and drat! Can't think of the other store BOTH stopped carrying Petite sizes...I'll jump back in to outline next time. Anyway they both now have brought back those sizes.

Also I got a Catalog from a clothing company that features clothing WITH PETITE sizes for those of us over age 55. I hesitate to reveal until I actually purchase from them. I have this affection for the fabric called MODAL which is much like rayon and feels like silk. The Catalog has cotton/polyester blends which is not my favorites.
