#1 still has to deal with some of the daily problems op does and can relate. My aunt and 2 best friends are all under 5 feet tall for various reasons and I've seen how frustrating it is for them to not be able to reach certain things or do things because of their heights. While it's not the end of the world, it's frustrating and in some cases embarrassing. -the friend who's always happy to get things off the top shelf without teasing you

I'm in my 40s and 4'11"ish. The weird thing is I'm shrinking--my height a few years ago was a shade under 5'0". But we're still taller than that Snooki chick from Jersey Shore. She's only 4'8".

#92, don't say a 4'11" woman isn't affected by dwarfism. My sister is 19, is about that height, and has dwarfism. There are different types of dwarfism and they leave people at different heights.

Lets try and be a little sensitive, Pleo.

That's a tall order, considering how high a penchant I have for making jokes. I guess I'll try not to belittle them anymore, then, if they have such a short fuse. I'd hate for anyone around here to think lower of me.

I'm not trying to dwarf the situation, at all. I was simply stating that the short comings of others are a little bit touchy. That being said, I know the difficulty of standing tall when the situation seems out of reach. So, I will definitely not lower the standings of your jokes. That would be small of me.

I'm pretty sure automatic doors work for small children, why would it be any different for a small adult? Unless the door mechanisms are different where I'm from. Here there is a sensor above the door looking down on an angle about 5 feet away on the ground. Motion is motion, no?

Yes, but they usually are aimed a couple feet off the ground so they aren't triggered by blowing leaves or stray dogs or anything. If OP is shorter than the spot the sensor is aimed, they won't pick up any motion.

Wow OP it sounds like you really get the short end of the stick.

This got voted down? It's hilarious

they should either get a sensor that detects to the ground, or supply a stick that little people can hold up so they can get in

You just like raining on everyone's parade! Yes I stick, or as I am sure OP would call it, a stick to insure they don't get the end of the stick!!

Well you are not short on options to resolve your little problem. You could carry a big stick to make those sensors notice you and beat anyone who pokes fun at little people. That's just one option

You could just pull the door open. Kinda less awkward than shaking a stick at it and all, plus you get the benefit of looking like a badass.

Im picturing that it is one of those sliding automatic doors (pocket door) rather than one on a hinge. And i find that sliding doors are a pain to try to force open, im assuming youre thinking about the handicap button thats typically on a door that had hinges ( which to me doesnt count as automatic it counts as people using it being lazy unless they truly need the assistance )

14 - The sliding doors are rather easy to pull apart to open. Plus they are also made so you can push them open for emergencies(they pop right back in). As for laziness of using the handicapped button, I believe this. I have seen people face plant a non-automatic door and then stare at it like it is broken.

14- If there was a handicap button I don't think there would be an issue, I was just simply stating that sliding automatic doors can be easily pulled open as they are designed that way.
