NFT: Angry Little Man at Bagel Store

figgy2989 : 7/11/2019 10:20 am
For those who haven't seen this already, the video is going pretty viral. An angry little man goes into Bagel Boss here on Long Island to get his bagel then proceeds to...well, lose his shit.

There are a few different sites out there with the video, but this link captures the before and after.

Lesson to be learned here, women on dating apps probably aren't looking for guys under 5'.

Had a temper like joe Pesci in good fellows ( too much) but besides that
Never saw an ounce of self confidence issues. Fact is guy could take over a room if he wanted to
I attribute the temper more to the crazy Italian but of course some could just be being short also
Had no fear either. Wish I had a conversation with him about it. He would throw Frazier like left hooks to my jaw until I was around 15 and could just keep him at bay :)

RC in MD : 7/11/2019 12:15 pm : link
but I remember reading several articles regarding shorter men in China going through extreme measures (bone lengthening process of the shins, etc.) to get taller because in China much of the modern culture (and number of eligible women vs eligible men being so skewed due to the one child policy) puts a pretty high premium in a man's height when it comes to job, marriage, etc. prospects.

While it's not nearly as bad in this country, I do empathize with the difficulties faced by people with some type of physical shortfalls (no pun intended). It's a rough world out there since superficiality is the norm these days.

Having said that, I've known many shorter guys (5'3"-5'5"), who carried themselves with so much confidence that even taller guys were in awe of their confidence. But these guys really focused on working on their other attributes such as fitness, humor, etc.
I'm merely short (5'7") rather than incredibly short  
Greg from LI : 7/11/2019 12:31 pm : link
My wife did tell me that I was the only boyfriend she'd ever had that was shorter than 6 feet tall

The really short dudes should seek out the really tall girls. They often have trouble finding dates too. My wife used to have a good friend who was about 6'1" in bare feet and 6'5" in heels. She was an attractive woman with a nice body and a pleasant personality, but she rarely dated because most men don't want a girlfriend who is taller than they are.
Then of course

guy who actually needs help-- needs therapy-- to deal with his perceived humiliation is now getting blown up virally to further shame and humiliate him. He's having a meltdown and I hope this very public humiliation doesn't lead to him harming himself, or even worse, harming others.

To be clear, this guy is a mean, bitter asshole. He lashed out at innocent people and looked to start trouble and welcomed the fight he received. But his anger that largely stems from his disadvantages due to his height. And it has so poisoned him that his focus and rage about only further makes him undesirable.

I pity this man and I empathize with him. Most people don't realize how disadvantageous it is to be a short man in our society. From the average heights of presidents and CEOs (which reflect the psychological impact of literally looking up or looking down at someone), but even more so in the dating scene.

Being short sucks in the dating scene. Most women want a guy who is taller than they are, or at least the same height. Then throw in that most women wear heels when they go out on dates and it severely limits the pool of women who are interested in short men.

The 20th percentile of female height is over 5'1. Throw on 2-inch heels, and a 5'3 man in the dating scene is shorter than 80% of women.

I'm 5'3 and happily married. But there was a lot of outright rejection from women who wouldn't consider dating me because of my height or would laugh at the thought of me because of my height. It sucked at times, but fortunately, I was able to get over it as a teenager and worked on improving parts of my life I could control-- my social skills, my education, my dress, my fitness, etc. I was able to play the numbers game and still went out with plenty of women where my height wasn't an issue, including many women who were much taller.

Now, there are some men on this site who are probably 5'7 or 5'8 and can relate in some way to being below average height and thinking this guy is a psycho. But there is a massive difference even between being 5'3 and 5'7. The median female is 5'4. Even in heels, a "short" 5'7 guy is taller than most women. There is still a much bigger dating pool. Every little bit shorter a guy gets, it has a more severe impact on his status in our society.

This guy looks to be 4'11 or 5'0. While I empathize with a lot of his struggles, I couldn't imagine just how much harder it was for him to find dates than it even was for me at 5'3. Some people just can't get over that hump. He likely faced a lot of humiliation not just from women growing up but also from other men.

But instead of being able to ignore it and focus on improving other areas of himself, he internalized all that rejection and it became his entire identity. Instead of overcoming his height to have a winning personality, the rage and anger won. And now he seems the entire world through the lens of being a laughed-at little man, and it has made him even more undesirable to anyone because his personality is even less desirable than his height.

He needs therapy.


This x 100. He does need help and while this wasn't the forum to air his grievances, he is right about women looking down (no pun intended) on short guys.

You could be smart, funny, good-looking...and for many women, that's not enough unless you're 6' or taller. I remember there was some kind of impromptu survey of women where many said they'd rather date a tall ugly guy instead of a short good-looking guy.

While this may be true, where this goes from stating an observation to something toxic is to begin attributing to women all of the reasons why a guy can't get a girlfriend or even laid rather than looking at oneself beyond some physical shortfalls. Incels (that's what they're called, right?) fall squarely into this group since they believe that women are solely to blame for their inability to succeed with the opposite sex, when in most cases, these dude have major character flaws that will turn anyone off whether they were 6'2" or whatever.

There are plenty of ugly dudes, short dudes, poor dudes, who have met loving people of the opposite sex. They do it because they're often not raging assholes.

The chip-on-his-shoulder Long Island bagel shop customer whose viral rant about dating turned into a brawl is going back for another bite, he told The Post on Thursday.

They just invited me over for a free bagel, claims Chris Morgan, a 45-year-old Bay Shore cleaning business owner.

Morgan said his phone has rung nonstop after he was caught on camera Wednesday morning at the local Bagel Boss location, where he was lashing out over being repeatedly rejected by women because of his 5-foot stature.

My phone is blowing up like the president, Morgan told The Post. I havent even got to my friends.

And Morgan says the rant seen round the world has suddenly changed his luck with the ladies. I got girls hitting on me I dont even know, he said.

My earlier comments stand, generally., about the problems short people face. But this guy is just a fucking asshole piece of shit.

I do think he was rejected often because of his height-- as are many really short guys-- and I empathize with that amount of rejection.

But this guy is the classic case of a shitty person blaming others for their problems.

I think it's a combination of being a bad person mixed with insecurities and an obvious mental disorder. It wouldn't shock me at all if he was bi-polar.

I listened to the interview from today on hot 97 and they told him about a dating site for short people and he said that he tried them all but then contradicted himself by saying "you have to pay" for those sites. So he is so desperate to find a woman but not enough to pay the site fees.

He literally claimed that he is a modern day Martin Luther King.
