A scene from dumb and dumber comes to mind. When one of the men sees a girl with some skies and asks if they are hers, she says yes, he then asks, "Both of them?"
I have one of these dumb and dumber type friends. He always asks me questions that make me want to say "Here's your sign. " Most of the time I get to the point where I ignore him and he gets bored so he starts making up stupid little songs, last night it was, "I opened a can of peaches and put em in a bowl then gave them to the kids. Kids like peaches and so do I." He literally sang this. Sounds like he may be about 10 or younger? Nope, he's 53!
He questions me about everything, and I mean everything. Did I do this, did I do that. I give my daughter medication at night he asks if I'm sure I measured it right. He walks in when I am cooking, stands over and tells me step by step how to cook. There are times I want to look at him and be like, "Why are you here? Just go away!" Seriously, he comes over because he is bored and doesn't want to sit at home with his parents.
I'm too nice and I don't want to be mean to him but there are times when I tell him, "Look it's late, I have work in the morning, I don't want to sit up and entertain you all night, you have to go home."
Does anyone else have friends or acquaintances that are like this? If so, how do you handle them without insulting them? Maybe I am being a little snotty and not accepting enough I don't know, he just annoys me.

Aww- it's too bad the testing & the services weren't so readily available back when he was in school. Or maybe his parents were in denial. Either way, it's sad he didn't get the help he obviously needed back then. If he had, he wouldn't be so resistant to it now. It's still not too late, b/c that man will have to prepare for when his parents aren't there to help him out. If they have an ability center or a board of Dev, Disabilities in your area, they could probably help him. I know, you can lead the horse....
