Autism stories at the gym

We’re all autists, share your stories of pain. I’ll start:
>see open lat pulldown cable machine
>every other machine and free weight is busy
>girl next to it doing tri pulldowns finishes set
>she moves to it just as I walked over
>goddammit.png
>ask her if she’s going to use the lat pulldown machine
>her: ”Yeah, but you can go first.”
>me: ”No, it’s okay, I’ll figure something else out.”
>turn around and speedwalk to the locker room
>hear her going: ”Oh…”
>later
>doing dumbbell incline press
>see her in mirror
>she looks at me in in the mirror with a slightly disappointed look

        I’m so glad COVID fucked my memory up, I’ve forgotten most of my most embarrassing memories from childhood. I’m not nearly as awkward as before because of it. I can’t wait until I get dementia, I’ll be a social butterfly(cruel genie, this is sarcastic).

      No you're not. I go to a large gym that rarely has more than 10 people in it when I'm there. I wear my earbuds to listen to audiobooks and people always walk up to me and start talking like I can hear them. It's gotten to the point I just blurt out "I can't hear you and I don't want to talk." So fucking rude and annoying but I bet they think that of me since I blow them off.

      Not really, I spend a lot of my day talking because of the nature of my work so I’d like a reprieve so I can focus on my lifts for the day. The other gymanons are probably really cool people and it’s not even a slight on them, it’s just I want to listen to my music and train upper body in peace.

      this one isn’t really that bad but i still feel bad because he’s a nice guy and he’ll probably think im a dick for not knowing his name. im pretty sure it’s ming or something like that but it was so loud in the gym when he said it it just sounded like gibberish

      I’m terrible with people’s names. I have a bro at my gym that I had to ask his name the second time. It’s not bad at all, as long as you remember his name the next time. Maybe you could ask for his social media to get his name?

      Did the same shit today. Wanted to deadlift byt some guy was front squatting <1pl8 on the only deadlift platform instead of in either of the squat racks. Fucked around doing pull ups and shit until he finished. Didn't want to say anything because I'm visiting family, it isn't my home gym. Would have asked to deadlift between his sets but he had squat wedges set up in the middle of the platform, would have had to reset them every time and that would have been a pain for both of us.

      Anyway I know I'm autistic but fuck that guy. Squat in the rack.

        I understand the benefits of discretion, but I'm just not looking for someone who might have any reason to roofie me, or hit on me. I also simply do not care if they think I'm anti-gay or not. I won't associate with the gays, simply, no amount of prudence would change my ways because it's just not a possibility I would entertain.

          I don't like the term homphobe, purely because people wrongly associate it with fear rather than hate. Phobias have, reasonably been associated with fear, but now unreasonably extended to cases where aversion is better suited. Like hydrophobia, for example, so stuff like this really ruffles my feathers.
          Same reason I don't like the term holocaust. It refers only to the garden gnomes that were killed during that time, and even assuming 7 million garden gnomes were killed the remaining 5 million non-garden gnomes massacred during that time deserve more respect than to be remembered as a side note the murdered semites.

      The real autism is not realizing that asking "You're not gay are you" after giving someone your contact information has the same energy as some guy asking a girl "You're not single are you".

      He probably didn't respond because he thought you were gay. You ask if someone is gay before giving them your information because the implication is that it's a dealbreaker. Giving someone your information and then asking sounds like you are hitting on them coyly.

          You are treating an autist as if they have control over their intonations. I can almost guarantee you he like most autists asks questions in a flat tone and it's up to the person they are interacting with to figure out what they are actually getting at.

          It's one of the biggest problems that autists tend to have. They don't intone shit. You can read their general emotions for signs but the actual tone of their voice is flat. If an autist is having a friendly conversation and asks a serious question only he knows its serious because his tone is exactly the same as when he was talking about Godzilla fighting Superman four minutes ago.

      He probably didn't respond because he thought you were gay. You ask if someone is gay before giving them your information because the implication is that it's a dealbreaker. Giving someone your information and then asking sounds like you are hitting on them coyly.

      the real autism is this take
      what a retarded take lmao

    I don't have a gym one but I have a military PT one

    >Doing some bullshit military body cardio routine
    >PTI is walking around helping people
    >We're doing squats, just after doing pushups
    >PTI walks past me and remarks that my form is good
    >I say "thanks I do them in the shower every day"
    >PTI thinks I meant pushups
    >Is visibily confused
    >Say nah I mean I do squats in the shower in the morning, like somehow that is better
    >PTI just say ok good work and walks off

    I started doing it when I was /fat/ and had gut problems, as squatting aligns the bowels and helps everything flow good.

    I am dangerously autistic and should not be allowed to leave the house but thankfully half the military is as well so I get away with it.

    Pic related cause this is the first google search result that came up and I happen to know the PTI in the picture.

      1. It would be easy to argue it’s not “sexual” as you didn’t mean it that way, and
      2. Even if it was harassment cause “the intent doesn’t matter, how it’s perceived does” and bullshit like that, you could argue that you didn’t know and it was meant to be a joke.

        Yeah those guys were mostly a bunch of fags and I think they were just afraid of backing me in order to cover their own asses. Thankfully I wasn't formally reprimanded or disciplined but it was certainly eye opening to see this group of men turn into complete pussies at the drop of a hat. I agree with you on your arguments , but I think you and I both know that logical arguments don't mesh well with sexual harassment nonsense , and the girl is always right. I found a much better company now so I'm not even bitter

        I think the real hiccup is the "Thanks, Thanks, Thanks."
        Instead of that abomination of the English language, I would probably say "Oh nice to meet you, Im Anon."
        Then, because we are meeting at the gym, I might offer to workout together, which I would say right after introducing myself (aka, saying my name) and it would look like: "Anyway, do you want to workout together some time?"
        However, working out together may not be the best practice for you because (and i personally relate to this) you probably want to be able to focus on your lifts instead of dealing with women when lifting. In that case, you can offer something different like getting coffee or food elsewhere: "Anyway, do you want to get coffee this Saturday?" or something like that. Better yet, I personally (without personal experience) believe it might also be better to say something like "Hey we should get XYZ this Saturday." Rather than asking it as a question, and instead asserting it.

      I've been just as weak as you or more but no one made fun of that, haven't been to the gym in years but it was pretty chill place when I did (around 10 years ago). Barely any women in the weights section and everyone entering would make a round to greet others in with this bro shake. Trainers, sport players, bunch of local hooligans without necks and among them me, a pathetic high school boy doing a 30kg bench press. No one gave a fuck unless you what you were going to do would hurt yourself or your form was terrible.
      But my friend who has visited a lot of gyms said it just depends on the place and its customs, also much more women now.

        He rapped over Daft Punk— It was not a fucking improvement, unless you’re some gay zoomzoom that ejaculates every time a moron rapes our earholes by speaking over another person’s music. JESUS IS KING was good, and I think Kanye is sometimes based. That said, he’s a plagiarist eternally sponging off the success of others, and his abortion of a rap track that was “Stronger” holds ZERO merit. Go fuck yourself.

        Are you mad at china for plagiarizing and making money?
        Are you mad at morons making money?

        Yes and yes. Piracy is one thing, but I hate plagiarism, as well as censorship, revisionism, trannies, music garden gnomes, etc...

          probably funny joke but in case it's real: There's no way to know if he likes you, he might have just helped you out because you looked like you needed help.

          Just meet eyes next time you see him and smile, he'll do the rest if he's not autistic and likes you. Or you could find an excuse to talk to him like working in on the same machine.

      Are you sure you're autistic? Wouldn't an autist think she was being totally literal?

        Let me guess, you heard that autistic people take everything literally... and you took it literally.
        Well boy, do I have some bad news for you.
        (truth is autistic people read social situations like a computer programme. "If X equals Y, then Z." You build up a set of pre-programmed cues in your head to bring out in case you ever get in a similar spot to the situation that made you consider the possibility it might happen in the first place. Of course, you only have cues for things you've thought about, so it's easier to just read the room. So you can see the problem.)

      Why don't you just skip the 'hyping' (overthinking) part and try just going in? Maybe turn up in your gym clothes and just lift without the locker room breakdown you keep having. Also why aren't you going back to the same one? Do you actually think a single person there remembers you?

    Squat 160
    Deadlift 260

    People all stare at me while I do both likely because it's girl and children lifts.

      It's autism bro, I have the same thing. I've got the biggest squat in my gym and after I finish a set I intentionally walk with my head down so nobody makes eye contact and compliments me.

        At least he's trying. After two centuries of feminism we're still waiting for the first woman out of a population of 4 billion to break programming and realize she's equally capable of making the first move.

        ffs What's German for "set" then? Probably some horrendous compound word with 67 letters.

        Full nazi here. Sätze is correct. "Sets" and "sentences" are homonyms in german.
        Just like a "date" (fruit) and "date" (rendezvous).

          Maybe it's not a difference in definition but because a sentence is a set of words so they just call it a set.

            In mathematics, a set is called "Menge". But since "Menge" also means "amount", it's kind of weird to use it.
            That'd be like saying "I only have 2 amounts left" when saying that you have 2 sets left.
