BZBrainz, to actuallyautistic

At work, we had a designated quiet space. Today I learned they reverted it back to a conference room though we have many, mostly unused. It was an emergency decompression space. When I spoke up about this loss, I was told, “If someone has a problem with bells & whistles they probably don’t belong in a hospital.” They didn’t realize it was me. “Of course you belong here—you’ve been here forever—we all have to suck it up. We’re all burned out.”

@BZBrainz @actuallyautistic ...and the reply to that, in my head, goes: "just fekkin restore the quiet spaces, will you?" 🙄

Some autistic people find making phone calls extremely stressful and unpleasant and will avoid them at all costs.

Please don’t try and force your communication preferences on others.

@JustusWingert @dcrooks @miaoue @autism101 @actuallyautistic yeah but you can slap ChatGPT in the marketing material somewhere! I'm sure it'll compensate for the lack of blockchain. You can still add that later when you're rich. 🫠

@PetitPas @theautisticcoach @actuallyautistic Ha! Had one French teacher in my undergrad studies, he kicked out a student on the first day, for daring to bring a pizza slince in class and eating it. Class started at 11:30.
Set the tone for the whole year.
Also him: "I don't make coding mistakes/write code with syntax errors." 😂

@PetitPas @theautisticcoach @actuallyautistic I guess his unconditional admiration for "les cousiiiins!" had evaporated by the time he taught us... 😅

@AlejandroP @PetitPas @theautisticcoach @actuallyautistic I guess that one was easier to swallow for first-year students, or the general population in the early 90s... 🤡
