I'm currently rotating at my hospital as I work through my residency. The title of this post are the exact words which came out of the mouth of a nurse on the floor I was working on. My first instinct when coming up with a comeback is to size the person up and determine which standout feature of theirs it worthy of a mean spirited joke.

The thing was, the nurse was black, dark skinned black. I wanted to jab back hard on her dark complexion but realized that would put me in a lot of hot water with HR. In theory though, the methodology is the same. See something on them that society says is bad and poke fun at it. I instead responded with "Ha-Ha Funny". She replied "Don't get all Short Man Syndrome on me".

I can't stand that being short is license for people to say anything to you without consequence.

Don't repay evil for evil.  Report it to HR and have her cited for insubordination to doctoral staff, harassment, and bullying.  She has no right whatsoever to be rude and hateful to you.  have a documented sit-down meeting with a 3rd person from HR, and hold her accountable. Nip this one in the bud, but don't play her game of insulting. Win the match by showing everyone how professional you are.

I've had a couple such moments myself.  I'm a VP at a college. We took on a really kind, wonderful guy to supervise all the building renovation.  Good-hearted but a little less then professional in demeanor.  He was taking a photo and started talking about how short I was, and calling me "Little ..."  I nipped that one in the bud.  Sat him down immediately and explained that would not be tolerated.  I also pointed out that I would never chide him about how enormously overweight he is.  He and I are the best of friends, and he never tried it again.  He just needed to understand boundaries.

Another time at a church dinner the pastor's very rude obstreperous son shoved in front of me in line and said, "Outta my way, shorty."  I pulled him into the library and explained in no uncertain terms that I was an elder in the church, and that he was never to ever address me that way again.

I never was bullied by either one after that ever again.
