Top Tall People Problems 3


As any tall person would agree, there are a lot of tall people problems out there. As a memento of our torment, I believe us worthy of our very own Tall People Problems poster. I commissioned a talented illustrator (over 2m (6’7″) tall himself so he can relate) to do the drawings that you all voted to be the biggest tall people problems.
