I have tried to think of what I could put in here, but I can't think of anything. Awkward. (talk) 09:24, 19 September 2014‎ (UTC) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Oh god, she's me. Someone please help her! 09:28, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

By coincidence, on a Facebook Asperger syndrome group that I'm a member of, there was this bit of dialog, purportedly from a party someone had attended: A: So, what do you work at? B: I have an invalid pension. A. Ah, I see. What's wrong with you? B: I'm not capable of lying. --RenniePet (talk) 11:14, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Surely no one would actually say "What's wrong with you?" in that situation, perhaps someone with Asperger syndrome wouldn't notice, but that's so rude. 11:28, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
Well, it was freely translated from Danish, and Danes are fairly blunt, without it necessarily being considered unfriendly. The original text:
Hørt ved et selskab:
- 'Nå, hvad laver du så til hverdag?'
- 'Jeg er førtidspensionist.'
- 'Okay, hvad fejler du?'
- 'Jeg er ærlig.'
