I am 180cm tall (5'11'') and have a friend who is extremely short (153cm/5'0''). She is really nice and normally she doesn't get angry at people, but she often gets angry at me when I lean down to listen to her. I mean, I know she feels like I'm trying to ridicule her by doing it, but seriously, I explained to her that I'm not. She's just really soft spoken and I can't hear her in places where lots of people are, like in school. If I don't do it and ask if she can repeat herself, she gets angry, too. I don't get it.
