What are some experiences you've had with something you enjoy that most people would question but is common for people on the spectrum.

I'll share one: I have been listening to the same song for at least an hour now.

You were unaware others had feelings and they were like objects to you. Then you are surprised someone can cry too just like you.

As recently mentioned on the Computing forum... you know your an aspie if you sit for hours watching the little blocks move around on screen while the computer hard drive defragments.

...you think you're doing great socially at a job at last, when your boss calls you in to tell you everyone has complained about you and finds you repellent.

I've done that before with Win98 and could sit there watching it for hours it was so fun! In the end I was like "will the structure ever be finished?"... Anyways, I'm not the only one who has done that then.

... The short-order-cook at the restuarnat where you usually eat tells you to not bother looking at the menu because you both know that you are going to order a blt on toasted white bread with just a little mayo and a pickle. Bonus points if the check out lady also give you a hard time.

LOL! I was once told that the cook sees me driving up and actually does put my order on the grill before I even walk in the door while the waitress clears my usual table for me. They've even started shorthanding on the ticket, "The Jo Special" rather than write out all my little modifications. Fortunately, they find it more amusing than annoying - or maybe it's because I tip well. :wink:

"Tip well! If you can afford the meal you can afford the tip and your wait staff gets paid crap!"

When I was a kid, I used to love going to the laundromat. I couldn't get enough of all those spinning clothes.

I did that a few times... back when I defragmented drives... I haven't defragged a drive in a while because they're so big now and defragging takes too long.
