I'm surprised that nobody's said Vegas yet.

These may not apply to every Aspie, but it does to me and others may relate:-

Pubs and bars - these are a no-no. I may be more comfortable when I go in a quiet pub with just middle-aged to old men sitting about muttering something about football or something, and sipping beer. But even then I once got an old 70-year-old taking the piss out of me in a pub (but he was a drunk alcoholic though, he didn't know what he was doing or saying, so I might let him off). But somewhere where young people gather, who are all dolled up to the nines and expect you to drink and dance and socialise....um, no thank you, I'd rather stick my tits in a bee's nest.

Shopping centres - nope, too many people give me too many looks until it becomes overwhelming. Not sure why they hate me being present in their shopping centre, but there you go. (Then people wonder why I have depression from ''I'm worse than everybody else'' thoughts).

Fashion shops - double no - the are always young girls working in these who look at you like you're a piece of s**t, which drives me away. Obviously they haven't grown up yet because the mature adult should think themselves lucky they are getting customers coming in at all, especially in the financial state the country is in at the moment. The f*****g snobby c**** should think themselves lucky they got a job at all really.

High schools - you are not allowed to have any mental disorders through mainstream high school.

Living in a council flat on an estate - in these types of places (where I come from) the council always put young girls in these flats who are on drugs and don't work and just lounge about all day drinking, and don't take prime in themselves or their homes, and they take all their aggression and mentality out on emotionally weak people on, for example, Aspies.

Hospitals - with people coughing loudly. It drives me insane and gives me ear infections from the loud sound.

By the way, why is this thread moved? It has a lot to do with general Autism talk.

3. Any sporting event ever: This is personal prefrence, but I get absolutley no joy in watching sports. If its in someone elses living room I just sit at the couch and wait for it to be over. If its in a stadium, I sit at the chair and wait for it to be over. While being told I'm unexitable because I'm not cheering when your apparently supposed to.


Personally I find sporting events to be ok with me. As a former Anfield season ticket holder (I had to sell my Kop season ticket as I can't afore it now :cry: ) I had great times at home games especially European games. 8) Tho I had bad experiences at derby matches with Everton at Goodison Park (IMHO that stadium is a hell-hole) especially when I had tickets for the Gwladys Street end due to the verbal abuse from mindless so called Everton 'fans' (The bittler and twisted bluenoses :lol:) , one does question if the Merseyside derby in this day of age is still "the friendly derby" that is hyped up to be in the media.

School is obviously the worst place for me (since I never go out anywhere), especially since I'm the only teen (as far as I know) with AS in my grade, or possibly in the whole school. My NT "friends" often abandon me and leave me to fend for myself when dealing with bullies.
CHAO, Your Avatar caught my eye instantly. I sold my Gamecube 5 years ago but I kept the Memory Card. I still have Matt the Chao (Made him like me) I miss him so much...My chao were actually my best friends. :cry:

My mum wants me to go to Las Vegas with her and her sisters, and I'm like ''no way'', although it would be a good experience. But I prefer to go on holiday to somewhere in the country, where it's more calm.

I don't know what I'd number it on a dislike scale, but I hate going to chain music stores like Guitar Center :|

It seems there's always some guy who thinks he plays guitar great, but doesn't, that sets the volume on a 100 watt tube amp to max (ear shattering :|), and then plays something along the lines of a botched metal version of "Mary had a little lamb" until I leave :P

Also, I resent being followed and harassed like I'm a wounded animal and them being hungry predators because of them wanting commission >_>

Then add that these stores are generally far too overcrowded for their size, and it's just one nightmare of an equation to walk into :|

At least metal-heads are talkative.


If you're trying to make a case for it being Aspie friendly, that argument doesn't help much. :P

Dorms. Living with loud college students with nowhere quiet to retreat to. I can handle some stressful situations so long as I have my quiet space to return to, but dorms prevent this--what with the sounds of parties and general youthful exuberance.

i quite liked vegas, 'cept for the heat and humidity. people left you alone to waste your money on games of fat chance. i, for one, am amazed that nobody's yet mentioned the army, or armed forces in general.
