I married into a family of tall people - I'm 5' 1" (on a good day), and my MIL is the shortest in the immediate family at 5'8". My DH is 5' 11", one sister is 5' 10", another sister is 6', FIL is about 6' 1", and the 6' tall sister's husband is about 6' 6". Our wedding pictures are flipping hilarious - one short person amidst a sea of tall people! All our wedding pictures with family/friends/wedding party are outside, so there weren't even any steps we could use for posing!
On cheapskate stories, my employer is being a definite cheapskate. I've been asking for a headset for my phone since I started (cradling the phone between my ear and shoulder is bad in so many ways!), and the excuse I keep getting for why I can't have one is "we're looking to see if there are extras somewhere". I started in December - I think if we had any, they'd have been found by now! Headsets are not that expensive, and I'd be more willing to answer the phone (and therefore be more productive) if I had one.
