I hate answering questions like this

•June 21, 2011 • 3 Comments

Questions without a response will receive no score.

* You observe one of your co-workers stealing items from the Store during one of your shifts. What would you be MOST likely to do?

Continue with what you are doing and report the co-worker later.

Stare at the co-worker so he/she will know you are watching him/her.

Pretend not to notice what the co-worker is doing.

Go find your supervisor and report the co-worker immediately.

Ask your co-worker to stop stealing.

* You are re-stocking shelves when you notice that some of your co-workers are standing around talking when they’re supposed to be working. What would you be MOST likely to do?

Leave the co-workers alone and wait for a supervisor to interrupt them.

Politely wait until they finish their conversation and then suggest that everyone get back to work.

Stop working and go tell your supervisor that associates are not working when they are supposed to.

The next time you see your supervisor, tell him/her that associates are not working when they are supposed to.

During you next break, talk to other co-workers about your concerns.

Take a break from work and join your co-workers’ conversation.

* I make plans and stick to them.

* After an unusually tiring hour, you notice that there are only 10 minutes left on your shift and you have only unloaded 8 of your quota of 12 product containers. What are you MOST likely to do?

Keep working at your current pace and make up for it by working faster tomorrow.

Take a break; you.ll never make it anyway.

Work faster; you might not make quota, but you will get close.

Ask a friend who has made quota to help you.

Keep working at your current pace, and let your supervisor know that your quota was set too high.

* I always double check my work.

I can’t tell you the number of times that answering questions like this has cost me a potential job. I don’t know how to answer them and I think it’s stupid to base the entire process on this alone. If I can do the job, and answer things right on the job, why can’t that count for anything? AGH.

Recently had an appointment with an independent psychologist in order to get an outside opinion on my Asperger’s diagnosis to see if I can qualify for Social Security.

At the end of the meeting, he said, “Some people’s presentation of Asperger’s is more subtle. No offense, but I’m surprised that it took you until your 20’s to get diagnosed. Yours is a very obvious case.”

So that’s two doctors on my side (one is a MD and the other is a Ph.D). I’d say it’s definite.

In other news, I added a new link:  Burning Organ Fanfic Database.

On A COMPLETELY Different Note

Yes, I’m actually trying to get this blog going (a bit) again, and I’ve updated the site (a bit). lol http://autism.typepad.com/autism/ – Called, “We Go With Him.” Go there. Good stuff.

Triple Posted!

A while back, I told you about a post of mine that had gotten picked up by another website . . . (Really?). Well, it just got picked up again, and this time, it’s been reposted at a site called The Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism. Feel free to reread it. 🙂  If nothing else, at least check out the comments!

In other news, I am now on Twitter.  Yes, I know.  I swore I wouldn’t do this, and then I learned that the cast of Criminal Minds was on there, and it was just all downhill from there.  🙂  As a friend of mine put it, it’s kinda like legal stalking.  lol

A few suggestions of accounts to follow:

  • lastcrazyhorn (me!)
  • HotchHoneys (people obsessed with Thomas Gibson’s character in Criminal Mind, SSA Aaron “Hotch” Hotchner)
  • Gibsonthomas (Thomas Gibson’s account – he’s actually really cool and posts pics of his feet and others’ on Tuesdays! lol)
  • SocialJerkBlog (social worker up in Philly who’s extremely funny and down to earth)
  • SteveMartinToGo (Steve Martin.  Need I say more?)
  • LevarBurton (Yes, from Star Trek and Reading Rainbow!)
  • GirlsArePoopie (she’s a lesbian who happens to make me laugh)

And many more.  Come check me out and click on the list of those I follow to see more.  🙂  Unlike this blog (pats it lovingly), I actually update there every day.

Woah Hey

I’ve Totally Just Had An Idea!

•December 4, 2010 • 3 Comments

I’ve been thinking that with my love of drawing and of writing, maybe I should consider trying my hand at writing kid’s books, you know?

Totally just had an idea for a story.  I could write about being an aspie and call it something like, “Did you know . . . ?”

I’m a superhero.  Okay, I know that I don’t look like much, but it’s true.  I have super hearing and super sight.  I can hear the buzzing of a fly from three rooms away.  Lights make sound and sometimes they move too.  I can tell when people are walking towards me by the way the ground vibrates.

Cool, huh?

Well, sometimes it is.  Unfortunately, there’s no off switch to having superpowers.

Etc.

🙂
