I used to watch Seinfeld, but can't think of an episode revolving around "stuff". Unless it was everyday minutiae-type stuff, but that was pretty much the show's M.O.

I play the game at the gas pump ("Release the hounds!"), though, where I try to get the number to land on an even dollar amount. If it doesn't, it's "classic overkill".

Are you master of your domain? Not that there's anything wrong with that!
Don't you complain a lot about your autistic son?

Wow, this was totally out of the blue, and uncalled for.

Complain? No. Have I talked about him in a thread on the subject of autism/asperger's? Yes, and respectfully so. I would prefer to keep my son, and his autism, out of your "argument" - whatever that is. Better yet, how about you just not bring him up again at all?

WTH is wrong with you?

Neemy, as have I and everybody else here, draw from our personal experiences when we respond to threads. That's not complaining, that's sharing.

Sharing our experiences to help others or emphasise with those going through similar things is hardly complaining.

Don't you 'complain' about your lack of social skills?

No kidding. That was an asinine thing to say...even for him.

No, she doesn't, and you need to leave her child out of this.

This is a guy who has self-diagnosed himself as having Asperger's... good grief.

Yes, obviously an expert...not. Anyone who would bring someone's child into an argument is not someone you need to pay any attention to, ever.

You criticised others for having what are normal run of the mill problems. How is looking after somebody disabled run of the mill?
