“Does the noise of my washing machine bother you?”
The autistic person may then start using the often very loud washing machine in the middle of the night too.
Because the neurotypical person hadn’t added the qualifier “as long as you use the washing machine between 8 am and 10 pm so that it doesn’t wake me up.”
Because autistic people don’t always find it easy to come up with such conclusions – hear what’s left unsaid – though they may seem logical to neurotypical people.
Am I right? Let me know in the comments.
