Maybe that’s why I have always gotten on well with autistic folks who “just say it” without concern for anything other than the matter at hand. Some would describe this as “brash,” but I have always liked the efficiency of just saying what is to be said.


Cheers,
Ian

Re: Dos and Don't with an AD/HDer

Maybe that's why I don't like comedians. I hate waiting for the punchline, especially when it's clear where the joke going.

I hate the rambling. The only thing I hate more is when somehow I patiently manage to wait for twenty minutes and then they still don't answer the question.
