Turn down their offer to help with a task then yell at them for sitting around on their butt.

When an Aspie (me) offers a solution to a problem and everyone else says my idea is no good and later on, someone else comes up with the same idea and everyone agrees it's a good solution.

Assume that everything an Aspie has an issue with somehow boils down to the Aspie lacking empathy :roll:

Point out a quirk to the Aspie in the most humiliating way, by mentally taking note of it and back-stab the Aspie about it when she's not there, then wait for the next time she displays this quirk and then verbally attack her :roll:

If you are a professional social worker dealing with Aspie adults, act like you're perfect and superior, along with the Aspie's NT relatives, as if to say ''we're NT and we have all these social powers and can do this and do that and we don't worry about this or about that'', and forget entirely that just because you're NT it doesn't mean that you're perfect in every way and never have any issues :roll:

Ignore the Aspie in social situations when the Aspie really wants social interaction, and then stare at the Aspie when the Aspie LEAST wants attention, like when she's walking in a busy town by herself :roll:

Gang up on the Aspie when she tries to contribute to a conversation telling her not to ''interrupt'', then when you are all having a conversation and the Aspie is sitting quietly saying nothing, yell to the Aspie ''you're quiet!'' :roll:

I think this would annoy anyone who had to deal with this crap, Aspie or otherwise. I have a family member who will absolutely freak out if you don't answer the phone when she calls. She will keep calling me back to back until I pick up the phone, and then if I still don't pick up she will go over to my house to check on me. I have told her multiple times that I hate being called back to back, and that she should leave a voicemail like anybody else, but she keeps telling me that when I don't answer she wonders if I'm in the floor dead or unconscious or something. And they say we're socially awkward.

Sounds like histrionic disorder to me (your relative, not you)! My sis is like that, but only with my mom.

Honestly I think she has some kind of disability going on, but she is undiagnosed because she doesn't believe in therapy. She's the only one of my family I haven't come out to about my Asperger's for fear of her thinking I'm faking. Of course she might not react that way at all, as I have told her before that I suspected I was autistic. Heck anybody who knows me could figure that out.

Another way to annoy an Aspie?

Insist on medicating them into zombie-hood when what they really need is training and therapy.

Still looking for a book that does as good a job explaining NT's to Aspies as Attwood's Complete Guide does explaining Aspies to NT's!

•Play a song with heavy bass in it
•Changing plans without advance notice.
•Changing plans in general
•Make a list of ways to annoy a large community online where anyone can see it and take advantage of it :P
•Say: "But you have feelings."
•Say: "So that means you're good at math."
•Say: "Your parents must have given those vaccines, just awful"
•Use the word Retarded as an insult
•Say: "But you have friends"
•Say: "But your smart"

-Use words like "suffering" and "symptoms" when talking about Asperger's.

-Say you support not getting vaccinated, call anyone who does get their shots a sheep, and that it's a government conspiracy or some other paranoid delusion.

-Try to sell them Autism Speaks T-shirts.

- Re-interpret the rules, so that an insult that once may have resulted in dismissal, now results only in the victim being told "That's just your opinion".

- Show favoritism toward your friends for no other reason than they are your friends.

- Re-interpret the rules, so that shameful behavior can no longer be described openly by the very deserving label that it earned in public.

- Blame the person who points out troubling situations for being a trouble-maker.

This is one of my major pet peeves. I HATE heavy bass songs. Whenever my friends play them in the car it drives (hehe) me crazy

- Call their name from another room and instantly say the message while they are yelling "What?" and cannot hear you.
- Take them to a shop "just for a few minutes" and spend 1,5h there. Ignoring their messages about having a headache from sensory overload due to the loud environment.
- Ask them random questions such as "What do you want for dinner?" when they are in shutdown state after the sensory overload.
- Ignore your the phone ringing while discussing with them about how to help them avoid sensory overload.
- Say "Stop that. You are clearly manipulating me but I won't give up so it's pointless!" when they are having sensory overload and stim badly to stay sane.
- Say "In 2 hours." when they ask you "Can we go home?" due to sensory overload. When they answer "Not in 2 hours, sooner." say "In 3 hours in that case.".

- Hide behind a position of authority to act in a hostile manner toward Aspies.

- Act in a hostile manner toward Aspies, and then blame them for causing the hostility.

- Fail to explain why you're acting hostile toward Aspies, and even deny that your actions are hostile.
