The other day I was introduced to this girl at work and I'm ashamed to say I secretly jumped with glee when I saw that she was shorter than me, as in, 4'4" or so. She was proportional, but short. Her feet were probably size 3 in kids. If I feel shitty about my height, I wonder how she feels about hers.

The first thing I said to her was "I'm taller than you!" which, really? Should I add "I'm an asshole" after that as well because that was what I thought right after I commented on her/our height. I'm thinking maybe I should apologize to her.

You should apologize to her because you HATE it when ppl make comments about your height. And you should realized that sometimes, ppl don't do it out of malice but they're just speaking the first thing on their mind and they can't help it.

Wow, that's awkward. (I know I shouldn't find it amusing, but I do, because I'm mean.)

If that was me, I would totally apologize. You didn't mean to say it, true, but it wouldn't hurt. ...I wouldn't suggest adding any "I'm just not used to finding people shorter than me.", either, since I'm sure you'd be irritated if somebody said that to you. Unlike weight, height is the one thing we can't change at all, so.

(Wouldn't it be nice, though? Some kind of shrinking or growing pill opposed to a stretching machine, since apparently those DID exist, but were used for torture. Eeeeek.)

That said, people probably do that all the time, but at least you're being polite and actually wondering about apologizing. That"s more than a LOT of people do.
