Asberger, Asperges, Aspergees, Assburgers, Aspegees, Asbeegees etc. (Those were just a few I found in less than a minute of looking, there are probably many more)
Ok, so this has been bothering me for a while, if we have a condition, we're supposed to have some form of medical diagnosis and know what it is called. It's not a burger made of donkey, it's not an autistic version of the Bee Gees, it's either Asperger's, Asperger Syndrome or Higher Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder.
I accept that some people seem to get their/there/they're consistently wrong, some people write in text speak, get confused between weather and whether, was, were and what messed up. But there is no homophone or variation of Asperger's, there is no Ass Burger to get it confused with, there is no As Bee Gees, there is no Ass Pee Gees, it's hardly rocket science!
Yeah, it's a bit irritating but I see it as similar to my reaction towards any grammar-crimes. I'm probably guilty of a few myself when I'm tired! The only thing I cannot shrug and move on from are punctuation-crimes (again, not to say that I never commit any but ...). I just can't help it when I see abused commas, neglected full-stops, over-worked exclamation marks, or capital letters that have been completely abandoned. Abuse of these small defenceless marks is endemic and must stop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Oops.)
Ok then I am guilty of all of those things,
“Yeah” “it’s “or yes It is something I have heard before these words crop up so many times,usually aimed towards me, although not this time
sorry if anyone finds it impossible to read my writing. I am also not very good at being a human being apparently so no big surprise,
so dyslexia is to be denounced as lazy and a crime against punctuation. Thank you. By the way I do my best.
pedant is a strange word I have come across many times in my life.
overscrupulous, scrupulous, precise, exact, over-exacting, perfectionist, precisionist, punctilious, meticulous, fussy, fastidious, finical, finick.
pick the bones out of that Lol.,,,,,!?!?’”; he he,
hey just saying,not trying to upset, we are all individuals with our own separate likes and dislikes, love you all x()x
peace and harmony to all. My tribe,
Hi, it's nice to see that I'm not wandering around here alone at this time of night. (I always have trouble sleeping.)
I think we were all just having a rant, it wasn't meant to upset anyone and I'm sorry if it came across as insensitive. Reading it back now it does sound a bit insensitive but it was meant tongue-in-cheek and is just an example of how we all react to our own little annoyances.
There are plenty of things I do that are annoying, trust me! Every one of those jokes you've ever heard about 'women drivers'? Guilty as charged! Pedantic? I'm afraid so, my partner takes great pleasure in changing the order of the 'Tea, Coffee, Sugar' tins in the house because he thinks it's hilarious that I can't leave them out of line :( I don't even know why I can't leave them like that!
My children have a running joke about my list-making too, I just need to have lists for everything otherwise I can't process the information properly. The weird thing is that once I've added something to my lists I might never have to check it again, I just need to know it's there for me to be able to think about it for some reason (?). I can't explain myself properly with this one because I don't really understand it myself, it's just another of my many odd quirks I guess. We all have them and they make us unique, mine keep me sane(ish).
Hey Endymion can I just say I am sorry I seem to be banging my head against yours, I really am a nice person. I get a bit annoyed at times as what I see as non important things that I cannot do or understand, I like your posts think highly of you.
sorry to come across as being mr angry,
i give free hugs to all, its my thing, virtual of coarse Lol.
take care and ,,,,oh just saw your reply, well we seem to share an awful lot of things, I get so wound up if my wife moves the tins around,even if the lids are changed so the handles are skew Wiff.
look forward to more relaxed exchanges between us,
i ramble on a lot and seldom crash out to sleep until the small hours.
by the way the ( ) is an aspie hug, or Aspergers hug Lol.
my memory is so bad I jot everything down,bits of paper every where. I have written a lot about my dyslexia and being young. Mind numbingly boring to some but a lot on here seem to associate to Them!
my key board is playing upnon my iPad,touchscreen.
forvexample I type with one finger hutvthevwords keep joining upbwith v in the middle,This is an unedited typed line of text, can you see that some words or all becomevone long line of text.maybe my space bar is faulty?
firgitvtibadd, forgot to add thisvin itself winds me up,grrr,
see even that is sooo wrong.
I don't think you're Mr Angry at all. Far from it! I've seen you around here since I joined and have only ever seen you be kind, considerate, patient and understanding with everyone. Much more so than I am sometimes I'm afraid.
I like hearing from you and you've never upset or annoyed me - I certainly haven't set out to upset or annoy you either. I think we're both just very different people but I think that's a very good thing indeed! Life would be boring if we were all the same.
You actually sound quite like my partner in some ways and with him, I think our Yin and Yang balance each other perfectly. With you and I, I just think you're a more spiritual person than me and that's obviously a good thing because (much as I wish it could) cold, hard science cannot answer all of our questions.
Sorry you can't sleep either, it can get pretty annoying sometimes to be the only on awake at this time of night / morning.
why thank you, I actually identify with an awful lot of what I have seen you write lately!
just don’t move my tea spoon or take my cup or give me a plate that isn’t my usual one. Lol.
Take care and keep talking. I do enjoy reading all the newish folks on here,I may not contribute as much these days but I do have a high empathy setting, After fifty odd years I express my emotions freely in here, my true self.
Not bad for an aspie Male Er hum.
