35 People With Autism Discuss The Strange Things Non-Autistic People Do

18. SMALL TALK

“My wife’s big family loves to sit around the dinner table and just chit chat for hours after they finished eating. I can’t do it. I just don’t understand it. They all live within 20 minutes of each other and see each other every week or so. It’s not like everyone is coming from across the country to meet up every 6 months. There’s not 3 hours’ worth of conversations to catch up on. I usually eat in like 20 minutes and then go upstairs to play video games or whatever with my nephews.”

19. CLUB LIFE

“I understand how people enjoy nights out at clubs- but I quite honestly find the idea just so confusing. You pay money to get into a crowded hot and very loud room- you try to talk to new people but can’t hear them- and you buy overpriced drinks that you will inevitably spill inside said hot and crowded room.”

20. ENJOYING THINGS CASUALLY

“People who can watch a TV show or have a favorite animal or play a videogame and just… not have it be a special interest. How do you do that? When I like something I need to know everything about it and there isn’t a minute goes by that I don’t think about it or reference it somehow. How do people just consume content in moderation? What’s it like just enjoying things casually? Don’t you feel guilty when you change interests and one of your previous interests gets shelved because you’re focusing on something new? I don’t get it.”

21. VENTING

“Venting.

All the days my mother just vents the things that happen in her day but every time I want to give her some advice or a solution to the problem she just ignores me and keeps talking. The same goes for a lot of people, just rambling about their problems without really looking for a solution

I kinda understand why they make that but I just hate it. Why you wouldn’t want to hear solutions but expect people to listen to you?”
