Nobody seems to have mentioned that some of those irritating talkative people are probably autistic....


The ones I mean are extroverts who think the world revolves around them. Very loud and animated types. Could they be autistic?
Yes, they absolutely could be.

^ indeed! I know I can rattle on about s**t nobody is interested in. I have definitely autistic friends who take an enormous amount of energy because they struggle to understand boundaries. Some of them are learning as I learn to communicate better.
The interesting thing about that whole not understanding boundaries thing, is that I have the opposite problem. NO ONE seems to understand that my boundaries should be respected. That is very difficult for me.

Sometimes on the train on the way to the slave plantation, someone is screaming or playing loud music and I get a headache and I have to move to the next train. However there are only so many trains, and there are plenty of annoying customers

The Litterbox at work is like an (echo chamber). Loud talking, loud music, loud hand dryer. Confined location.

Sensory overload

And then sometimes precious lil "people" have the nerve to bother me. A couple of weeks ago, a day laborer had the nerve to scream "chino" at me from across the parking lot.

Sometimes they demand an answer, to unjustified questions.
Slave plantation??? Where are you??

Oh, right, I just got the joke. It took me awhile.

Oh yes! I LOVE sharing information. But isn't it interesting that some people take offence when we share information? They seem to think we're making a comment or criticism of them.

Does that happen to you?

Oh gosh, I can so relate. I hate when people twist my words when I am just sharing facts and they respond as if I am personally criticizing them. It's so infuriating when people do that.


That's it, exactly. They get angry and I'm left thinking 'what did I do?'

I'm sorry if I get you mixed up with other people, I'm not good at telling people apart. Just remind me of our last conversation then I'll know who you are.

That's interesting, I didn't know autistic people could be extroverts! :oops:
