A word meaning cool, a 'tall' person can do anything they want, wherever they want, whenever they want: rules do not apply to a 'tall' person, since they are so amazing.

The origin of this meaning was used first at a Harkins Theatre, when a customer asked for, instead of a small, a tall drink (such as the smallest size at coffee shops). Ever since, it has been used to describe how incredible something is.
Did you see him pull off that trick? He's so tall!

Starbuck's term for "small" by default. While Short is supposed to be their "small" it's doesn't appear on the menu for hot drinks.
Customer: Wait...I ordered small, hot latte. It's supposed to be 8 oz. Why am I being charged for the "Tall" size?

Barista: Oh, you wanted a "Short". You didn't say "Short". Do you want a "Short" then, hmmmmm?

Customer: Well...uhhh...yeah...of course.

Barista: Well you should've just said so in the 1st place.

Customer(seething): You just lost your tip.
