Dangling Legs & 6 Other Short Girl Problems
Not being taken seriously
I used to work for this non-profit agency in which I scheduled interviews for prospective employees over the phone. When those people came into the office, a lot of people found a hard time believing I was the person they’d spoken to over the phone. Finally, I asked one woman why she said this. She said that based on my voice, she expected me to be taller and older. Even people who’ve known me for years, make a point to say I have a lot of “spunk” for someone so small. Apparently, they didn’t get the memo that big personalities can come in small bodies.
