Please be CAREFUL using this on a Kitchen Counter, if you're short.

Yes, this pump seems to work quite well at releasing air from wine bottles. Goody.
But it takes a good deal of body strength , to generate the "click" that means air has been released. For a person with ordinary upper body strength, this should be no problem at all. But have you ever wished your kitchen counter was not quite so high?
Well then, Amazon-user, you're short. And unless you plan to use this vacuum pump on a low surface, you'll have your elbows extended outward, like a bird. But at shoulder level or even above-shoulder. And then you'll be pumping downward forcefully, at a small focal point in the middle of your chest. Get the picture?
I don't think this would pose any problem if your arms were not so high up in a weird position. And if the focal point where you're pumping were not so small. Hey, couldn't there be a warning: "Careful, Short People"?
I wish I had looked for a lower surface to use this vacuum pump. Maybe drunk a little less wine? Ouch!
