Yes, y'all are probably going to say I'm a boring person! Just read this from a different perspective.
I have mild Autism, and with that comes very sensitive ears. I can hear a dozen conversations, and have a hard time paying attention to a conversation I'm participating; I digress.
Anyway, sudden noises startle me so much, I get panic attacks. These sounds include firetrucks, ambulances, truck horns, bugs buzzing near my ears, loud jets, and fireworks.
I get scared like a dog when it comes to fireworks and have to cover my ears with my fingers. Don't judge, it's a comforting thing I do.
The one thing I really hate are the selfish assholes who shoot fireworks way past midnight! Like dude, there are people who have to wake up early for work or to take care of kids. Celebrating is one thing, but not being aware of those who are asleep is uncalled for!
