Most common remark I've ever heard:
You're so short!

Most common questions:
Are you old enough? Can I see your ID?

Nowadays, I usually reply to the short remark with a glare and silence, but I'm at a lost at how to react to the age question. I am a bit flattered at them thinking I am younger than I look, but it gets really annoying after awhile because I at least want to be taken seriously at times, but who wants to take a 15-year-old seriously?

The short thing would really get on my nerves too, but as for being carded? Eh. I get carded all the time still, sometimes even at the movies.

I've had some worse short comments, my latest being "Is it funny that I'm almost as tall as you when I'm sitting down?"

As for the age thing, it's not at places where I need to be carded necessarily. I was just at work.

Aww, thank you! And may I say I want to eat your kitty in your icon? So cute!

Anyway, about the short comment, you're right. I never go up to a fat person and say "Omg you're so fat!" but people are always making mean comments about my height, like "Omg you're so tiny!" or "Is it funny that I'm almost as tall as you when I'm sitting down?"

I find it funny because people really just don't think when they say stuff... They tell ME I'm tiny! Like hello... I'm not even that small. People are stupid.

At least we can rejoice in the fact that we're not 6'5" girls.
