Some people just have difficulty with clothes. In 3rd grade I somehow managed to wear my step dad's jeans to school...backwards and never noticed until I got home. I put shirts on inside out and backward frequently, and have people at work point it out lol.

Maybe it means you have dyslexia problems and you get scatter brained and put things on wrong. My god I was 8 when this happened how lazy can someone that age be. People do make mistakes sometimes it doesn't always mean they're horrible people.

No, I don't think OP's appointment was for autism.

34 - I'm going to assume you were replying to me and not 29. The term "mental retardation" is a clinical term used for some mental deficiencies, such as Down's Syndrome. It's not an insult when used in that context.

35 they don't use the term mental retardation anymore barrimg imsults. its no longer used in professional settings. And many autistic people have average or above average intelligence when it comes to book smarts. mostly lack in the common sense / social skills / communication department. they are like normal people trapped with a miswired brain rather than anything akin to downs syndrome or anything that would make you act like you an age much younger than you actually are. the common trait of flapping arms around and such falls under communication issues with people in the autistic spectrum . hence why the now defunct term mental retardation came to be. the most common term not is either the specific learning disability or disorder that affects the patient or simply intellectually handicapped. and they are not nonintelligent enough that they don't know retard or mental retardation is an insult. it's mostly use by teens and younger as such. maybe adults too whom were children when the phrase was new and "hip". but in any case they know and thus the term is very hurtful. even for autistic children. it's even worse probably because they can't vocalize the hurt well if at all.. p.s. autistic people can use the Internet pretty well. this includes ones whom are low functioning in real life. not all. but many.

I wasn't actually even referring to autism in general. Most disabilities that fall under the autistic spectrum aren't even severe enough to use the term mental retardation, that mostly is just for those with learning disabilities. But I believe most people just associate autism with Down's Syndrome, thus the generalization.

I think wearing a shirt backwards is much more common and understandable than wearing pants backwards. I can only see that happening with sweat pants but it probably wasn't, if it was appropriate enough to wear to work. It boggles the mind I tell ya.

I mean often if you have a hectic day it is possible to hold the urge to use a bathroom as you can be pretty occupied. Everyone makes silly mistakes at some point though unlucky op.

How do you not notice the extra room in the back, and kind of tight in the front. Are they elastic waist or did you have to zip them up in the back?
