Don't say that short people don't get short thrift, because they do. I'm 5ft tall and in the course of 3 months have been spat on, sworn at and had things thrown at me, each time just because I'm small (I know because of the words they choose to shout at me!). My twin gets the same treatment. Naturally, none of my taller friends do. Can you explain why it's OK to treat small people like this? I'm similar to this. Why do they do this?
