Mollie Kendrick’s Short Person Problems – The Struggle Is Real
Sometimes it's difficult to tell how tall or short a person is if you've never met them in person. If you and I ever meet face-to-face, you'll find that I'm really short. Like really short - 5 ft, 1 in.
Both super short and super tall people have problems functioning normally on a daily basis due to their height. For me, I can't reach the top shelf, climb over a fence (not that I frequently have a reason to be doing that...), etc. For tall people, I'm guessing they're not very good at doing the limbo.
Every morning, I walk into the K99 studio with a short person problem of having to pull the computer monitors closer to me. One is a touch screen, so that one needs to be easily accessible. Brian Gary keeps the touch screen monitor pretty far away - both he and Todd Harding are tall guys. I'm also guessing Brian isn't blind like I am (actually, you never know - he does have eye herpes...).
Don't get me wrong, it doesn't piss me off that the monitor is far away in the beginning of my shift. I just think it's funny that I literally have to pull the touch screen monitor at least a foot towards me! And of course, just like it's courteous to lower the toilet seat back down when you're living with or visiting a female, I push the touch screen monitor back to its original position after my show (because I think everyone here at the radio station is taller than me). Ha!
See the before and after in the studio below!
