For as long as I can remember, I've always been pretty tall. I was big for my age growing up and stand at about 6' 1'' today. I'm not a towering giant by any means, but that's still tall enough that it becomes noticeable.
I don't just mean that others noticed my height, although that's true enough. Instead, I'm referring to the fact that we interact with the world a little differently when we're above average height.
And while I'm happy to help people reach stuff on high shelves, I also must admit that I've dealt with some of the issues we'll be looking at today.
