Other really autistic Dev: hey how does this work?
Me: *stop what I'm doing and go to his side* well I'm not entirely sure since I didn't write any of this but I believe it must be... Proceed to try and explain the code

Other Dev: *uses his hands in a shut up motion and raises it's voice* NO, I ASKED HOW DOES THIS WORK?!?!

Me: ok I don't know I'm just trying to help

Other Dev: literally repeats the same thing as before but even louder.

Me: get extremely annoyed and tell him wait man you really are disrespecting me Im just trying to help

Other Dev: no I'm not disrespecting you

Me: *internally screaming* ok... I'll go and do my work any other questions you have put them on slack

How the fuck can people communicate like this?

    I mean, if he's actually autistic, he probably doesn't know it any better

    At least the ones i know wouldn't

    foo: this is on first
    bar: no, Whois on first
    foo: Who's whois?
    bar: whois tells you who owns what's online
    foo: what's on line?
    bar: online is this
    foo: no, this is on first

    @Krokoklemme oh man I get it but if you are telling someone he is disrespecting you there is no room for subjectivity in there, also wasn't the first time he acted like this

    Necrobump probably, but having Asperger I can't imagine myself acting like such a cunt.. that said, I was a cunt like that a couple of years ago... Perhaps it's one of those things that takes time to learn. Please cut them some slack, they indeed probably don't know better (yet). But if they're worth their salt, at some point they'll learn.

    When someone is acting like a cunt to me, I fire back. I would answer him... "To understand how "this" works, you have to understand its surrounding context. "This" is scope dependent. Understand its lexical scope and voila... Problem solved." And then I would leave and let him think wtf I just said to him 🤣
