Cuz I think, that is to say, I'm fairly certain that my H AND his mother are it, lol. Too much to go into, as we are getting ready to leave soon (because God forbid we don't allow 7 hours for a 3 hour drive, lol), but my word! I spent ALLLLLLL day with mother in law, between lunch and jacket shopping and food shopping and dinner and afterwards, with sprinklings of H in there. They are similar in so many ways, it is scary. I've thought that H could be on the spectrum for some time now, but now I'm certain. I wish I could bring him in for an official diagnosis, just so I know I'm not going crazy. They are both very intelligent. But they are both also extremely clueless! They just don't seem to be aware of others around them, it's so difficult to describe, but I think most folks here will know what I mean. While in the grocers yesterday I had to steer mother in law clear of the isles and other people's wagons countless times. The place was packed and she simply was not conscientious of this fact. Often I'd turn to check on her and she would be standing in the isle just completely oblivious that there are people trying to pass! Three times I had to actually go to her and tell her to let people pass. And every time? She's surprised any one is there. H IS THE SAME WAY, OMG!!! Lol. While shopping for her jacket (5 stores, I thought my knee would explode), every time a sales clerk would ask if we needed help, she would give them her classic cold stare and impatiently tell them, No! I finally began responding for her with a nice smile and a simple no thank you. I honestly can't tell if they are that clueless or just rude because this particular trait seems to be one they ALL have. And she refers to everyone besides herself, her family and her friends as 'those people', which is a designation I really don't care for, especially because her tone is laced with such disdain. I hate to admit it, but can be like that also, I just think he's not as bad because he knows how I feel. So i thought it was bad having to pull H out of his little world and into ours....now i have two! And this just Day One.
