Autistic Lifehack: Hearing Problems

If someone says something that you only partially understand:

DON’T ask for clarification with a generic “What?” or “I’m sorry?” (In my experience, people will repeat the phrase the exact same way without helping you to understand).

Example:
Them: “Hey, do you like pahganabasa?”
Autistic Person: “What?”
Them: “Do you like pahganabasa?”
Autistic Person: “I’m sorry, what?”
Them (annoyed): “Do you like pahganabasa?”

Instead, DO repeat the part that you did understand, and substitute a “What?” for the unintelligable part.

Example:
Them: “Hey, do you like pahganabasa?”
Autistic Person: “Do I like what?”
Them: “Pineapple pizza?”
Autistic Person: (Understands the words!)

IMPORTAINT ABOUT THE SPAGETTI PEN LIFEHACK

I had no idea it would get 18 000+ notes over night so here’s some things worth noticing.

I haven’t used it for more than a day so I’m as clueless as you about long term use and its consequences. It will probably scratch your tablet, I honestly wouldn’t know since my tablet looks like this to begin with

(yes that’s tape.)

However have som common sense people,

DON’T USE LIFEHACKS INVOLVING FOOD ON THINGS THAT COST YOU THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS OR THAT YOU CAN’T AFFORD BREAKING/TAKING DAMAGE!! USE IT AS AN EMERGENCY NIB ON OLD TABLETS OR UNTIL YOU CAN GET NEW ONES BECAUSE AS STATED, I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED IS IT BREAKS OR EFFECTS OF LONG TIME USE.THANKS!!!!
