Seeing as your arrogant/rude attitude stinks so much, you have no right to insult anybody else. Just take a look back at how you've spoken to me and others, neuro diverse or otherwise.
No, you donít. Only your inflated ego and sense of self importance makes you think you do.

Apart from covid, it's said that approx 50% of people will get cancer or dementia. If/when this happens to you and you receive your current attitude from other people, this would be a life lesson that you would clearly benefit from.

I won't because i won't be arrogant enough demand things, I'll ask or explain politely and/or take the required steps to protect myself.

Also, how do you know I don't suffer from an significant illness or disability?

You don't....

On my private property I, as anyone, can insist that certain conditions are met or entry can be refused.

I have just come off the phone after speaking to a senior manager of the chemist in question. He apologised profusely, said that this should never have happened, especially to somebody so vulnerable to covid, and reassured me that staff training/risk assessments would be taking place for all their staff. He thanked me for drawing it to his attention and we agreed upon a mutually satisfactory solution going forward. I asked him to put this on writing as, on the slim chance that this guy has given me covid, I have informed him that me or my executor will be seeking redress. He was very pleasent about it and agreed to do this as he said "I can totally understand where you are coming from".

Ego/self importance.....just look at the abrupt, rude, arrogant & discriminatory way that you speak to other people. I doubt that you interact like this in real life, so are probably a keyboard warrior and this is your only outlet.

Whether you suffer from a disability or not is neither here nor there. It could be argued that you ought to know better and be more empathetic, but it is perfectly possible for one disabled person to be guilty of harassing/discriminating against another disabled person.

Re: Coronavirus

You have been warned before about making allegations of discrimination against other forum users just because you dislike their posts. Desist at once.

Re: Coronavirus

Sorry Richard, but you do come across as someone that would be wise to give a wide berth to. Maybe you need to think more about how you do come across to others.

The issue has now been resolved to the satisfaction of all parties, so i'm happy with that. Not being the 3rd person in my family to die from covid is my primary concern.

I do acknowledge that my disability can affect my cognitive skills & ability to express myself effectively, so have asked a support worker to look through this thread regarding the two people who brought this up; he has said that he sees nothing wrong.

Re: Coronavirus

For what it’s worth, I agree with you that the delivery driver’s behaviour was unacceptable given the nature of his work, but there are those who disagree and you just have to take that on the chin. If you put your opinions and actions on a discussion forum, you’re inviting discussion. If you’re looking for affirmation, the best place is your own Facebook page, with appropriate privacy, so only your personal friends can see it.

I don't understand the fuss about masks.

Personally, if someone was to come into my home or my car I would not care if they wore a mask or not. I am comfortable with any increased risk and ideally prefer not to wear one. If I get into someone else's car and they don't care either I won't wear one.

However, when going into a store or enclosed area I am mindful that there may be people there - especially the staff - who would appreciate it if I wore a mask and for now that seems a polite and reasonable thing to do. I could refuse and point out it's my legal right not to wear a mask to make a point but it seems needlessly rude and inconsiderate.

Anywhere which would prefer you wear a mask I will continue to do so for now.

That'll be because you're a decent, considerate person, I'll wear a mask whilst those around me still are, why should I benefit from the protection their mask wearing affords me whilst not extending them the same courtesy, anything else would be bad manners. Just because bozo and his chums want to abrogate responsibility doesn't mean I have to, I'd rather not pass covid on and potentially have someone's death on my conscience just because bozo said its okay.

Re: Coronavirus

96 deaths today, cases from 10,11,12 days ago average at approx 31,000

very very basic fag packet maths and IF we see linear progression would be 290ish deaths per day coming from a 100,000 a day case rate

---------- Post added at 16:32 ---------- Previous post was at 16:31 ----------

it would appear that deaths have doubled in a week
