Door Economy

I am very tall.
I don't mind this very often. I have always been tall. (I actually think short people are scary, but I'll save that for another day.) When someone calls me up in front of a room full of people to give me something, and says "Yes, I made her stand up to show that she is indeed taller than I am," I don't mind.
There are only two places and situations in the world when I ever mind being tall. The first is in public restrooms. The second is in dressing rooms.
I understand that today's economy is bad. People are trying to save money wherever they can. But please: you can't be saving enough money on doors to make being able to see over the top of them worth it. And I honestly don't want to be able to see into the next stall without standing on tip toes.
Dressing rooms aren't much better. In fact, they're worse, because I'm constantly having to watch in case someone as tall as I am walks by. Although being able to look over the door instead of having to keep opening it is convenient, and saves time on giving/receiving second opinions.
So whatever economy you live in- please remember that giants walk among you. And we would appreciate a door that's more than four feet tall.

  1. BWA ha ha! I'm sorry - I know this is a valid complaint - but you've got to admit it's kind of funny. I'm sure you're not the only one wanting taller dressing room doors and walls. Think of the poor short people next to you trying to dress while being able to see your head looming next to them! (;
