What are your pet peeves?
Mine include: People scraping their teeth on their fork when they're eating.
People with appallingly poor manners.
And one of my biggest pet peeves is when someone tells me I am not tall. I'm female and 5'8.5". I'm above the average height of a woman in practically every country (barring some parts of Africa) on the planet, not to mention taller than the average male in a bunch of countries. I'm taller than my parents, the same height as my boyfriend, taller than my ex-husband. Taller than the majority of my friends including some of my male friends.
I'm confused as to how this cannot be considered tall.
