Autism and Common Sense

I remember when I was fifteen, being asked to vacuum the living room. I got yelled at because I hadn’t done it well enough, and I was told that I had to sometimes move furniture. The next time I vacuumed, I moved all the furniture, including the heavy bookcase. Then I got yelled at again because I had no “common sense” and this was obviously not what had been meant by moving furniture.
