Yes this is another autism thread. I am curious to see what results I get here for which person in the story has AS vs what results I got at the autism forums. I didn't make this story up, an NT did to paint a picture about aspies and he said which the aspie was.
At work someone is working on the computer and another person is going around picking up trash. He comes to someone's office and the person is in the way and there is no way the person can get to the trash.
"The boss told me to take out the trash.".
"Yes, but could you please wait a moment because I'm right in the middle downloading something and I don't want to screw it up. Let me quickly finish this and then I'll get out of the way and let you get to my trash can."
"The boss told me to do it now"
"I know, but please just wait a moment"
"He told me to do it right now. He didn't say anything about waiting for anyone to finish what they are doing."
"I know, but I'm right in the middle of .....oh ****!! Now look what you've made me do?! Couldn't you have waited?"
"The boss told me to take the trash out now."
Who do you think is the aspie, the trash picker upper or the person doing the downloading? Or would you say both of them have it?
