Before I knew anything about autism I’ll bring the bail money shirt, I would look weirdly at someone who had to be wearing the same clothes all the time, who would calm down by rocking and who would put a song on repeat a hundred times. And with self-esteem in the basement, I would allow a person to forget promises they made, scream at me for something minor and expect me to read their mind.

Best I’ll bring the bail money shirt
Net, I don’t mind someone having issues and trying to accommodate them I’ll bring the bail money shirt. I am also happy to help when I can. Say I meet a new friend and they start stimming in front of me. That’s fine. Now, I have all the compassion in the world for sensory issues and stimming that calms the person down but doesn’t harm others. They are doing helps them calm down.
However, I would mind it if I’d ask the person what they are doing and they’d scream at me to mind my own business & accuse me of discriminating instead of telling me they get overwhelmed easier. Like silent treatments, forgetting promises and commitments. Not verbalizing their thoughts and not recognizing that the other people can’t read their minds. And if such a thing did happen, it’s not your fault for such poor planning.
