We are twins. Oh, how about coughing and people try to pat you on the back. NO! Dammit. But rubbers, the police thing. I learned very quick kinda like Pavlov's dog experiment. (Which is how I learn everything) When its the police, just shut down the machine! Do an override. Or be Rodney King.

I go Felix...Total "Felix" in the book 'Armor'....it's called, and rightly so, 'THE ENGINE'. Only once did I have to physically back up, near an exit, put my hands up in front of me and state I had a neurological "problem" kinda of like epilepsy and that I'd be happy to answer any questions, but PLEASE NOT GRAB AT ME... I think the new cop thought I was 5150 and the old dog came over...after we talked a minute it was cool. It looked a bit "Rainman" however I just remember how much worse it would have been had they grabbed me. Since I was not under suspicion, I was a witness, and couldn't see why the kid-cop was so eager to physically handle me in some manner. When it comes to physical boundaries/ restraint issues, maybe we were separated at birth...Everyone I know that knows me won't come up behind me, for any reason, without telling me they are there. I rarely am in a situation where someone could BE behind me, I sorta stand sentry, but on the rare occasion I have to have my back turned, like standing in line, DO NOT APPROACH ME AND GRAB...I will throw an elbow to your ribs/ face/throat...It's automatic, and since most people can prevent grabbing another human from behind, the error is with the grabber. Also, Women who put their hands over your eyes and do that "GUESS WHO " crap? Not cute. Hard to sneak up on me, but in a noisy place this has happened and the result ain't pretty.

OHH....Hey, were you the guy that punched me in the face in second grade, just because the guy behind me pushed me into the guy in front of me? LOL . OK, one more. You get a bad letter in the mail, like IRS auditing, A lawsuit, and someone wants to look over your shoulder to read it at the same time!!! Nooooooo! Give me a minute to assimilate the issue first.

it's called "shoulder surfing" and it is also a BIG no-no. NOT done....in my house, it's considered rude and oppressive to lurk over one's shoulder....this will cover my idea of personal space...put your arms out as far as they reach and spin slowly in a circle. THAT is your space for talking to most people, and do the same with your elbows and that is you space for close friends or when speaking more privately. If I KNOW there is gonna go a compulsive over-hugger or over-toucher at a gathering I am attending, (and WHY is it the people that KNOW you don't much like being touched feel the insatiable need to CURE YOU?) I sit, with my foot slung up on the good knee and the foot is just "there"..... a perfect distance-maker....Kinda hard to get past that foot in a boot. Also, sales people that try to close a deal with the "Shoulder or elbow grasp"...it's not subtle, I know the "technique" you are using and it REPELS ME and makes people like me NOT want to buy whatever you are selling.
