GAH I have Asperger's Syndrome, and It frustrates me to all hell when they state the bloody obvious to me. For example, when I was in 6th grade: "John! Stop playing with the tape measure, It's not a toy!" Another kid would then take the teacher's words and use it on me later, making sure to also insert the underlined portion in his/her sentence, when they also find me playing with the tape measure again later on. Why the hell do they feel the need to say the underlined portion? Had they just told me to stop, I would've just stopped. But because they had to add that portion, I got mad and started a fight over this, and told the teacher that I am not stupid. More sayings that somehow piss me off: "Don't touch that, you're not old enough" (I am 21 now, but this was when I was helping my dad pack stuff up in a bag, when I was 14 and he had beer)...for some reason this one still pisses me off when I am in the presence of this being said to ANOTHER PERSON "Don't try to drive the car, you don't have your license yet" "Don't touch anything in the driver's seat of the bus, you're not the bus driver" "I can do whatever I want because, It's MY computer" "John, don't touch that, It's MINE not YOURS" When people say sentences like that to me, I seem to have a complete meltdown and go crazy towards whoever that person may be. If they were just to use simple commands such as "Stop" or "Don't touch that, please" I would be ok, and just comply to their request. But because they feel the need to "clarify" things, I get MAD and ANGRY. But yet when its something like this "Don't cross the street, the light is red" or "Open the door, It's nice and cool outside" I am completely FINE with it, I don't throw a fit, and I am ok, I just comply. So do I just hate specific sentences or something? I don't get it either, and I am the one who gets irritated! Do I just chalk it up as me having a huge amount of negativity to sentences with suffixes? Ha ha. I feel sorry for my roommates who have to deal with me, but I am sure they only like me because I clean up the apartment.
