131 - grow up... I'm 6ft and I hate people talking about my height. you think it wouldn't be that big of a deal, but people freaking out every time they see you gets old. This is sort of off track, but I'm tall and suck at basketball! that's not how it's supposed to work! D: *ahem* anyway, I wouldn't have the heart to spit on somebody for trying to be funny (unless they are being an ass...I still wouldn't spit, but I'd find something else.) so the tall guy is kind of a douche..a funny douche..but a douche. and OP! ydi for being unoriginal! (I realize I just used the completely unoriginal insult, "douche"...so nobody troll on me about being a hypocrite.)
I'm 6"4' and I just felt like asking how the line "How's the weather up there?" ever took off. The average male is about 5"10', why would there be even a remote weather difference 6 inches higher off the ground? Clearly the person that thought up the "insult" had a lower IQ than the hieght difference; and the people that repeat it, even less. Kudos to the guy for his quick thinking.
It's alright to joke when its a friend, someone you know well, not a complete stranger. And I guess we should respect everyone's nature the way he is and do not laugh at it. Coz he never chose to be tall himself, that's how he is. If it has been a friend and you joke with him knowing that he is ok with it then it's fine, but if u are a true friend and u know he does not like to be joked upon his height, yo need to respect him.
Me too 137!! The worst is when random people come up to me and tell me I should play basketball. Like excuse me, I'm going to do whatever sport I damn well feel like! I'm going to play a sport because I love it, not because I'm six feet tall. I play tennis because I love it and it makes me happy.
