For some strange reason, average height people always want to let short people know that they’re short. It isn’t a surprise to us, we know, and feel like saying to you, “Wow, that’s news! I’ll alert the media!”

Yep, the short comments are annoying, so don’t feel guilty using one of our great comebacks below.

Salma Hayek was teased for being short
Even Salma Hayek was self-conscious of her height when she was younger.
I felt like Ugly Betty many, many times. I’m very short so when I was growing up, people made fun of me as if it was like a birth defect, a deformity… like I was in a circus or something. I think we all have something people point out to you when you’re a kid and then you point it out to yourself nonstop. – Salma Hayek
Things worked out OK for Salma, she certainly didn’t let her lack of height stand in her way.
