I just finished watching the latest season of Atypical–a story about a guy on the spectrum. It’s a comedy with some very heartfelt moments, but I tend to identify with Sam a lot. I don’t of course just blurt out things like he does, but I find myself thinking the things he says out loud. I find long conversations tiring and sometimes I wish I could just walk away from a conversation or end a zoom meeting because I’m no longer interested in what they other persons are saying. When conversations grow too long I say in my mind things like:
- yes I heard this already
- please get to the point
- why are you using so many words
- can’t you just email or text me
- please be quiet, please be quiet.
- God please make them stop talking. etc…
