Apart from the not-having-fun thing, that is...

Does anyone else relate?

Sort of. It's not one of the Onion's funnier articles, anyway.

Yes,at work I do.The real irony is that I am pretty sure they are "making fun" of people like me.I agree with the writer however.
I am at work to work.

At home however,all I have is fun....I come to WP to socialize,read good books,go out and collect rocks,play with my bunnies or visit my favorite thriftstore.....(are we having fun yet.....thats my usual response when I was forced to go to what others found to be fun....socializing.)I will treat myself with completely nonproductive activities....like refinishing furniture or making a collage......ah,good times.Who said aspies cant have fun?

The Onion is my favorite newspaper. Much better than the Houston Chronicle.

I can relate to that at work. I could not join in the small talk and would rather read a book at lunchtimes. I got the sack from most of my jobs where I felt unable to join in. They always find a way to get rid of you if you don't follow the sheep, sorry NTs. :roll:

I can relate. I am not one for making small talk, but I do talk about my cats often. I am glad to work in a place where people have pets.

I :heart: the Onion.
Passionately.
Though, I do have to admit that's not that funny.

Exactly. I'm probably keenly aware of this as, at previous jobs, any minor "goofing off" was seized upon as me being a bad employee. Because I'm not good at office politics, I can't really get away with anything. My best bet is to be 100% on task at work, and offer no opportunity for criticism.
