Gao Yang, a 26-year-old food deliveryman, has always attracted the attention of others due to his height.

Measuring just 1.3 meters tall, the native of Mianyang in Sichuan province first came to Shanghai half a year ago to work for third-party food delivery company Ele.me. Because of his height, the man has always received more tips from customers than other couriers.

Gao said that while he is touched by these displays, he insisted that others do not have to show sympathy toward his predicament.

“I will remember the kindness of the customers,” he said. “I hope I can earn money from my labor and efforts, not from sympathy.”

Gao currently earns a monthly salary about 8,400 yuan ($1,250), which is considered to be high for couriers in Shanghai. The filial son said he would remit most of his salary to his parents back in his hometown.

He also said that he is glad to be a deliveryman as it affords him greater freedom as compared to a factory job and a chance to meet different people.
