InTALLerance!

Ok, so I have just discovered another reason why the world is not fair for tall people.  I need some new blue jeans.  I have 2 pair right now but one is too big and one is too small. So, since Fall is finally here in Houston – it’s time for some new Fall jeans.
Old Navy is having an awesome sale today with jeans for $16  - SWEET!  I was all about that.  I mean, I am working very hard to loose some weight and I don’t need to spend beau coup dinero on jeans I may only wear for a few months.  
I was feeling good as I walked into the store.  Every woman knows that feeling of joy you feel when you know you are about to get a great deal.  It’s almost like that Christmas morning feeling you had as a kid.  Imagine my disappointment that after 15 minutes of digging looking for my size in Long’s, I found none.  Then when I asked for help in finding some I was told that Old Navy does not carry Long’s in the store.  I have to go online and buy them.  What the what?  Did I just walk into an alternate dimension?
Oh yes ma’am.  So I went to a few more stores and was told the exact same thing.  I’d almost given up hope and then I found The Limited.  I found a pair of Long’s, oh sweet Hallelujah.  I asked for another size in Long as well.  The sales lady couldn’t believe I’d found a Long because she said what all the other store’s said – you have to buy Long’s online.  The pair I found were bought online but the person returned them to the store.  God was with me.  He knows how much I need a nice fitting pair of jeans. 
I left the mall with a feeling of such accomplishment.  But, I spent way more than I wanted.  It’s discrimination – Discrimination Against the Vertically Gifted.  It’s InTALLerance
And let me tell you, I’m not a freak.  It’s not like I play for the WNBA.  I am 5’9”.  Shorter than the average model.  It’s not the money, it’s principle of it people.  I should be able to walk into a store and find my length and buy it at the same price as every other person under 5’6”.
If you feel my pain let me know, I’d like to know I’m not alone.  Let’s lift each other up.  Maybe if enough of us raise a stink, they’ll start carrying Long/Tall in the actual store.  It’s not just a world of short people – I deserve to be able to buy quality, well-priced clothes IN THE STORE!
I’m done.  Peace out!

Oh dear! I buy long in the store ALL the time. It has been about a year though. That makes me worried.
