In all our hardships, there is the real issue that we are all human beings. And it is an absolutely natural reaction for any human being to notice that someone else is short. Let's face it -- you can't help BUT notice. Yes, I agree that you cannot hide the fact that you are short. But the act of noticing does not make one an asshole, as you pretend in your posting.
You have to understand that the person who tells you to "get on with your life" doesn't KNOW to say anything else in the circumstance.
