I remember this guy who I liked asking me out and me saying yes and us linking hands and walking back to our friends (he'd taken me off to ask me) and it was really cheesily romantic....and then i walked in to a table.

This is kind of dyspraxia related but mainly AS related but it's still a funny story looking back. I have always had problems with taking things literally but when I was younger, they were a lot worse. I was always really slow at getting ready for school and it used to really annoy my mum. One time, when I was eight, I was in the middle of getting dressed when my mum came out of her room briefly and said, "Do your teeth now-you can get dressed in the car". When she said that, I assumed that she wanted me to undress, do my teeth and then get dressed in the car-it never even struck me that this was a strange request. She went back into her room and I stripped naked and then cleaned my teeth. Then I just stood there on the landing naked with my school uniform at my feet waiting to get into the car. My mum came back out of her room, saw me naked on the landing and was absolutely furious, thinking I had done it to be defiant! At that point, I had not been formally diagnosed with AS-we were still in the diagnostic process so they did not realise that taking things literally is associated with AS in many people. At the time, I was very upset as I could not understand why she was so angry at me for doing what she had asked but I can laugh about it now and my mum always brings the story out at family occasions.

Ooops-sounds like something I would probably do (although I am getting better at detecting sarcasm in peoples voices now). Dyspraxic people can take things literally too so it doesn't necessarily mean you have AS.

Me and some of my friends went really hyper one day when we was all at the park and we decided to stand on the swings as there was no one else around but us. they all managed to sand on it without falling, but then it was my turn. I managed to step up and onto the swing seat then trip over my own foot wile trying to turn around to face my friends and I fell off and ended up face down in the wood chips lol

Danni suggested I post it in this thread but this just epic and horrifying at the same time, I got terrible luck and doesn't help i'm a raging stampede constantly. I can make myself hyper at any time if the time is right in my eyes, great for being a ninja.

So story is I was trying to do a few jumping and flying kicks, I landed one on my friend but I landed quite awkwardly, I'm not the most elegant on my feet as it is, poor ankles! So I landed on the slant of my foot, NOT flat, so it decided to cave over.
Twisted ankle, lots of pain, lots of laughing and I managed to fall over almost (used my other foot to keep upright).
Its happened before but the story behind it is laughable as its my own fault. :lol:

I had to go to the bank for my voluntary work once and I got muddled. I had to go up some stairs to pay the money in and after I had done so I couldn't remember where the stairs I had come up were. So I went down the wrong ones and ended up in a fire exit. I had to come up them again and people in the queue were staring at me. They must have thought I was really stupid!

I should add that I frequently trip over dodgy pavement slabs where one is higher or lower than the other, it hurts a lot when you stub your toe, mkuch more than you'd thin X_X.
Lamp posts are also a worthy foe of mine, remnants of my face remain on many of the local lamp posts.

More than once I've arrived at college to discover that my clothes are the wrong way around- so far I think I've caught it before anyone else has noticed :P

I keep forgetting things that I need, like my pencil case when I have maths. I also forget little things like appointments, and to take my medication (whoops). So far nothing too bad has happened because of my forgetfulness.
