I'm with you on hating writing and drawing by hand too Dan. I am embarrassingly bad at drawing and I way prefer typing to handwriting. So much easier!

Haha, yeah!! Let's just slate Christmas!!

The other thing is that it throws use routine-loving neurodiverse types into disarray with extra bank holidays, doing different things on different days, and random short weeks.

Philip, good points!!

I've got another one... PASSWORDS!!!

I understand the need for them, but I seem to spend my life clicking on the forgotten password button unless it's the password I usually default to. Is there also any need to have such requirements of a password? £ isn't a real word, neither is @ or # or ?. If I struggle to remember the normal word type of passwords, how the heck am I going to remember one with all those in? And to add insult to injury, people say you shouldn't right them down. WTF??

Ahhh I hate passwords so much too! I think this is why I have avoided online banking. My bank pin I remember by sequence rather then number. My work gate pin the same although I can remember it but if someone asks me the code there and then.

People not putting things into context and then expecting you to know what they're talking about.

TLAs - also known as Three Letter Acronyms. Terrible for anyone with a short-term memory problem and also frequently "hidden behind" instead of using the simple words "we" and "us". To my mind anyone communicating whilst frequently using these comes across as a faceless bureaucrat rather than a human being - apologies if this causes offence to anyone :-)
Even worse when used with a possessive apostrophe - ugh!
I'll now get off my soapbox and go cook some dinner.

I think for me it would be:
1. Netball - all that leaping and pivoting. It's just not for me.
2. People who say "but you had it a minute ago!" when I lose something. A lot can happen in a minute!
3. Wasps. They're pointless and they're a pain.
I am so with you on wasps. I turn into a child when a wasp is around and run away, lol.

For me, it would be:
1. Sports in general
2. The saying "but you seem happy" when I have clearly stated I am depressed
3. Animal cruelty, although I am not sure if that is a valid thing to put in Room 101, as they are normally frivolous things
