Being an aspie myself... yeah. Meeting another aspie for me is similar to having a clone. You may get along great for a bit and then because they're so like you behaviour-wise (obsessions, habits won't change plans, trouble with give-and-take in conversations, etc. and the other symptoms), you realize how ANNOYING it is to be around someone who's exactly like you for a while. I'm well aware that my behaviour can drive people batty. I always seem "normal" enough, if a bit eccentric, that I don't fit in with most of the autism-spectrum people. Plus, yah. I'd rather have my socializing involve non-AS people who just understand I'm not exactly normal. When you already have social troubles, it's even harder socializing with people who ALSO have social problems.

Ugh, on another forum someone is trying to bait me into an old fight. It's especially bad since I've been depressed lately since my rabbit's death, I really don't need someone attacking me on supposedly friendly forum. She's just so annoying. She keep saying she wants people to leave her opinions alone. Well, there's a very easy way to accomplish that; keep your opinions to yourself. But then again her logic is that if someone expresses an opinion she disagrees with, it's automatically a personal attack on her. I've reported her several times but the mods have yet to do anything about it. They really need an ignore feature like the one we have here.

Why do some of the people I know only message me when they need help with something? Those people suck

I too am an aspie, and this made me cry. I am so happy that someone out there knows what it is like! Marry me? <3

Damn. :/ lol

So today I had a complete stranger complement my ass in a very flirtatious way. In front of my boyfriend. Now I know that my bf is passive, but he didn't say a word. Not one. I thought it was pretty clear that what was said made me uncomfortable, but he didn't say anything. I was in so much shock that I just managed to squeak out a thanks before walking away. It completely irked me that Ben didn't do anything. Maybe I'm overreacting.

I asked my manager weeks ago not to schedule me before 3 on Friday 12/14. I have a doctors appointment at 1030, but it's a neurologist so I gave myself a lot of extra time.
I reminded on Sunday, and let him a sticky note in his computer.
I go in tonight, check my schedule and when am I working? 9-4 12/14. Like the exact time I asked him NOT to schedule me. And then, he tells me I have to try to find my own coverage! Which I am, but it's not my fault. They re the ones who blacked Time off Requests for Nov and Dec. I asked for a Doctors appointment! A specialists appointment that I have been waiting a month for!

Ugh

^ Gotta love management amirite?

Decree from the Powers That Be. All employees must take their vacations for this year by the end of December as they will not be carried over to the next year.

Oh by the way all vacation requests are denied for December because there will be too much work going on. >_>

About being put off by the comment? Nah.

About your boyfriend not doing anything about it? Probably.

What would you have wanted him to do about it?

As I've noted on several of my posts today, I am REALLY pissed off at the shit excuse for a fabric store that is Canada's Fabricland. As a result, I wrote this and DAMN did I need to. http://shinobixikyu.deviantart.com/journal/

@Shinobi: can't help with the Fabricland drama, but could you and a friend make a duct tape dress form for yourself? There are several tutorials online and YouTube.

Tell me about it.... as of late I've been "not well", and last night I come to find out that someone who I WAS finally getting along with (she refused to work with me for over a year simply because I'm a female, and we're on the same robotics team) has actually been lying to my face and is very blunt about how much she doesn't really like me behind my back. Thanks, that helps a lot with my current mental state.

Also, I try not to be one of those people that is always complaining about their life and their problems, because quite frankly I know that nobody cares. So, I just kind of say nothing and vent on the internet here and there. Well, there are a couple of people on my team who play the "I have [x] problem" card whenever something doesn't go their way, and they end up getting their way because I'm not going to play that card and go that route. Look, if they have problems and need someone to talk to, I'm here, but if they always complain and mope while refusing to tell anyone what's going on, then suddenly open up when they need pity points, I'm going to be surprisingly unsympathetic. It just....gah. Then again, I've been really snarky and unsympathetic lately so maybe it's just me.

Regardless, I hope whatever is going on in your life works out, and that you'll be able to work through whatever is in your way. @_@
