    Remember back a while ago when I talked about this friend that wasn't showing me the proper respect I felt I deserved.

    Well having not spoken to him for close to a year on a larf I decided to call just to see what he's been up to/if he's changed his behavior in regards to me

    *Let's just say he reacted a bit over the top to prior talks;for example he once asked me if I collect weapons.I said no as I don't like the idea of weapons in the house.He replies "Might as well lock yourself up in a rubber room then"*

    Unfortunately no he hasn't with is probably not exactly his fault as he has been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome

    He's got a problem with people who don't agree with him.In fact if you don't agree with him he takes a "Fine I'm not talking to you then" type attitude.And I've spoken to his friends,they have noticed problems with him too.So I doubt he has as many friends as he bragged about

    Basically I "apparantly" said something mean to him(apparantly is in quotations because he never explained what) and before I could ask what he acted like a 10 yr old basically saying "I don't like you anymore bye" just before RUDELY slamming up the phone.Prety much what happened was that in a discussion topic my logic was too much(he agreed with my viewpoint saying "You know that makes sense") so he couldn't rebuttal so instead he hung the phone up :rolleyes: 

    But that's just the Aspergers,because that's not how a normal adult would react.He's pretty ego-centric which is a symptom of aspergers

    At least it can't be said I don't give 2nd chances.

    But I guess I was stupid to try.After all like any ex be it a bf/gf or a friend.While ANYONE can change if given a chance.Usually they don't and an ex is an ex for a reason :redface2:

    After reading through that laundry list of symptoms, I think half if not all posters on internet message boards have some degree of Asperger's Syndrome.

    At least it's not Assburger Syndrome.

    That one's even more embarassing and socially debilitating.

    I doubt it's a sympton and more like he's got a lousy personality. I'd stay away from him if I were you. Doesn't seem like he's worth being friends with but that's just me.

    Who cares if this guy's got arsecandle syndrome? You gave him a 2nd chance Shaun, and he acted like a twat.
    Don't give him a 3rd.

    I knew a guy with that syndrome, and he was the most annoying person I've ever met. That syndrome really can make a person into a complete social disaster.

    I'm sure there are plenty of people with it who are not complete social morons, but this guy sure wasn't one of them.

    Speaking as one who has said syndrome; I for one feel that, that ex-friend of yours truly is a extreme version of the carrier... Or whatever one would term such a person as being afflicted by it; I ain't too big on medical lingo.

    Personally I sure hope I don't come off as that type; anyway I say you gave him a chance, that's that... And IMO, collecting weapons is stupid, unless it's lightsabers, but that's just because lightsabers are C O O L. (Can you tell I wish I had one, those Force FX things are friggen expensive though... Or whatever lightsabers are the hyper realistic ones with the 150$+ price tags.) Well; I shouldn't say stupid per-se... Just really... Creepy in certain respects; I mean I understand there's a market for things like movie prop swords and the like, but why would you want to collect them? One's all you really need for a decent display piece, and don't even get me started on guns, man, the only gun I ever intend to own happens to transform and shoot plastic pellets. :D

    When I knew him 5 years ago he was a nice.But it seems that he's let his muscles,6-pack and new found popularity go to his head.

    The way he acts with me I don't see how he could be so popular

    No chance of that happening

    Sent him an e-mail ealy this morning telling him my distain for his attitude.And told him to not e-mail me or even call me.

    I work with children with autism, aspergers, PDDS (specific and nonspecific) ect and if they are low on the spectrum for their disorder then that behavior is expected. Like the whole "Fine I'm not talking to you" attitude as if you don't mean anything to him, well you don't. Low spectrum cases of autism, you don't have those feelings of love or attatchment, hes probably like that to his own mother. I mean, sure children with the disorder have life skill classes and what not and are taught to to show love and know how to show those emotions, but they don't feel them and don't relate to them. But anyway, I say don't take anything he says to heart as it is his disorder. Just move on, cause he won't care anyway

    Lol

    Don't know how he got through but he sent me an e-mail.

    Pretty much to just get the last word in :rolleyes:  although I told him not to reply since I blocked his address

    Oh well,if getting the last word makes him happy.Then I'm glad he got his kicks

    There's that immaturity that attitude and annoyance Honestgabe and MMM talked about

    This is indicitive of what would probably happen if the same situation arose with a potential gf.

    To be honest I don't know

    It's just the type of pose that comes naturally I guess
