Guest Post- “Why do People go to Lunch to Socialize?”

This was actually last week’s post; but I have been totally swamped.  This is just a comment that came up in our wonderfully Aspie/HF asd life, and it really is too good not to share.

Why do people go to Lunch to “socialize?”

You wait in a line, to go sit down in a room, where it’s typically so loud, that you can only hear 1/2  to 3/4 of what the other person is saying. You politely nod your head and smile… except when your mouth is full of food, which is much of the meal (especially at a normal lunch hour from work,  since you only have about 30 minutes to eat, after travel time to get there.)

So there you sit, your mouth full of food, trying to talk with people who can’t really hear what you are saying…
And if the table is large enough, then you are lucky to exchange smiles and a wave.  Tell me again;  How are you supposed to be building a relationship if you can hear almost Nothing of what is said?

Add to that the food is oddly spiced or cold or too hot.  Then we have to pay for this stress.  Can you say ‘what a fantastic experience!’    Let’s do this again next week, shall we?  … eh, no…not really.
