Super Tall 17-Year-Old Is Handing Out Business Cards To People Who Won’t Stop Asking About His Height

If you are tall and you’re always being bombarded with “how tall are you” type of questions,  you can learn a lot from this 17-year-old! Logan, a 6′ 7″ (2,04 m) high-school senior from Holly Springs, bought 100 business cards for just 10$ that answer all these annoying questions right away.

He estimates that people ask him about his height 5-10 times a day, therefore his stock is already running low. It was the “best investment yet,” – says Logan.

The whole thing went viral when a girl named Heather was working on a group project with Logan, and of course she couldn’t resist the temptation to ask him about his height. Once she was handed a business card, she immedeately tweeted a picture of it.

“Omg so this kid I’m doin a group project with is mad tall n I asked him how tall he was and he pulled out his wallet n handed me this,” – wrote Heather.

I'd still have questions even if he handed me that card... Like... "Oh, but how tall is it in cm?" ^_- No, but, really, I understand because I'm tall too. And I'm a woman, somehow men are expected (and preferred) to be tall, tall women are considered more of a rare sight. However, I'm "only" 178cm, so technically that's not TOO tall, so I'm bombarded by comments and questions as well, but not as frequently. Lucky me.

200 cm. Same as me. Since I am not thin as Logan, people don't believe me with picture, but once they met me, it's the same kind of questions, about "really", "basketball" and "weather".

My fiancé is 6' 4", and I'm 4' 10". We always get stares when we're out together! :P It's a good way to meet new people actually!

In high school, senior year, my 6'2 started dating a freshman who was just under 5ft. Whenever they walked around campus holding hands, it looked like a dad taking his 10 yr old daughter to school... It didn't get ridiculous until he knocked her up... Imagine a girl who looked 12 yrs old at best, cuddling with a 20 something ex football player gone soft... In reality, she was 14, he was 18, so still illegal but a little less disturbing.

Passing out rude comebacks is no better than the person asking the questions. Logan better print a boat load of business cards. People asking him how tall he is, will NEVER stop. - I'm a tiny gal, and I've always loved it when people are interested enough in me to engage in a conversation. It often has been the "ice breaker" for somebody who wants to know more about me.

You don't know how annoying it is! Most people think it's just fine to take the pee! They wouldn't ask a fat person what they weighed so why should us tall people not retort rudely?
