Tell me do is it me or the NT?

Today I simply wanted a second glass of milk for breakfast and they acted like I was trying to burn down the house. Then I was trying to find my coffee and instead of helping me they sat there and told me, "There is no damn coffee!" a hundred times when I just bought some this Monday?

 

Help!

Those aren't unreasonable, for an aspie. And that's the part that the NTs miss.

Most NTs would think it's unreasonable to want a second glass of milk. But it's not unreasonable for you to want that, and as long as there's no real problem with it (cost, length of time taken to consume the milk, availability of milk, etc.) then they shouldn't turn your request down. There is definitely no place for them to react the way that you say they did, if there's a reason why they won't let you have a second glass they should simply explain what that reason is in a calm manner.

I don't quite understand what you're saying about the coffee incident, but it's not unusual for aspies to forget things like that which NTs remember - again, NTs don't always realise this.
