Height Insight

(A customer is getting a suit jacket fitted. She is rather short.)

Me: “Okay, may I have your height?”

Customer: “Height? What’s that?”

Me: “How tall are you, ma’am?”

Customer: “Oh, yes…height. Of course. I think I’m, like, 5’12”?”

Me: “Okay, so about six foot?”

Customer: “No, 5’12”. Didn’t I just say that?”

Me: “Yes, ma’am. 5 feet 12 inches would be the same as six foot.”

Customer: “Well, they’ve changed it since last I checked.”

    So, she’s 6 feet, but you call her quite short? How tall are you?

      Maybe the editors changed the height and didn’t think it through. Or the customer got the inches wrong.

      • Neil Fairweather

        I’m pretty sure the point is that the customer got it significantly wrong. Possibly they are 5’½”.

      It was probably part of why op was confused. The customer obviously didn’t know how tall she was, which showed even more by saying she was 6 feet tall when she obviously wasn’t.

      That’s what I think anywaus, do with it as you will 🙂

      I’m 5’1″, and I rarely find people who are shorter than me. Same height as me, sometimes, but almost never shorter than me and who are my age range.
