Thoughts and illustrations on living with Asperger's Syndrome.
Ikr.? I just try to pay attention to the cashier as they're ringing stuff up. Sometimes it'll remind me of something I forgot. Chris
They'll get you every time, it's always something...
OH MY GOD, YES.
this has happened to me many times. and not just at grocery stores, either...it's happened to me at coffee shops, libraries and my local 7-11. basically anytime i'm in a place where I have to wait in a line.
Where there are lines, there are line shenanigans...
Spot on. Queue etiquette. Who made the rules?!
And the NTs wonder why I wear earplugs and sun glasses at the grocery store. The other thing I hate about lines is the guy standing four inches from my back and breathing on my neck. Talk about meltdown. I now put the empty cart between me and the person behind me. Makes them mad but they seem to be mad no matter what.
I like a cart buffer zone myself.
This is me, every time I go to the grocery store alone. Social anxiety at it's finest.
And don´t forget the feeling of wanting to crawl in some hole when you´re back home. Sometimes I need hours to stop feeling embarrassed :-( Hubby doesn´t get it - even past situationsbushwack me sometimes if they were worse enough. Years later I still want to crawl in some hole remembering.And a "get over it already" doesn´t really help me.....Thanks@Matt for again putting into words what I feel but can´t express, You do that a lot, and have helped me so many timesto start communicating with my environment
