    It sick it piss. 1% autism it barely noticeable
    I'm NOT ****ing autism. Autism people can't drive, they can't hold 3 jobs like I'm holding, and work, even a-- I wo-do for a moving company. If I was autism would I be able to move ****ing furniture all round all day? No. Would I be able to hold signs and hand out business cards? Noo. Autism people usually can't talk, they have no speech, they're not aware of their surroundings... but I am, so...

    It seems very British that people care more about getting somewhere on time than a death nearby.

    I just keep remembering a joke someone said about how people in London, upon hearing of a bomb going off, would then just try and think of another route to work.

    Men ,especially manual workers in dangerous situations, are seen as totally disposable so nothing new here. I would be amazed if there was any empathy.

    Exactly the same principle. I'm not surprised to see this viewpoint represented and endorsed on here, because a great many posters on here routinely lack any sort of thought or empathy for anybody that is not themselves. When this has happened to me (a couple of times actually, but only one where the person actually died), I have of course been annoyed that pickups etc would now be messed up and I'd be later getting home/getting away, but that has quickly been outweighed by the 'well at least my family know I'm just late and not dead' and 'ah I'll get there eventually'.
    I can see why people get cheesed off to be honest, because you’re not really told what is going on when an event like this happens (not that this makes posting abuse on twitter right)

    There are always reasons, nothing occurs in a causal vacuum, of course. I just don't think getting narked about this stuff is particularly worthwhile anyway, nevermind once the context comes to light.

    In this situation it was clear that the person had passed. But in other cases all you here is trespassing or a customer incident, at that point we clearly don’t know if somebody has died or not. That’s when I get slightly grumpy. Because i would like to know what is causing the delays so I know whether it’ll be a while (and worth finding another route) or if it’ll be fixed within the hour. I think that is at least reasonable.

    Fair, and that is a question I will generally ask myself in such situations. I have to say that in my experience, if I ask if it is worth you finding another way to get where you need to be, I have generally got a straight 'yes' or 'no'. An anecdote that does not fit all circumstances, I know.

    I sincerely hope you're joking about this, many people with autism have the capability to do all this and much more

    Surprise, surprise, people value large sums of money more than they do someone they never even knew existed. Welcome to the real world.

    Surprise surprise, people spend hundreds on a flight (not to mention thousands on the holiday itself)and aren't happy that someone caused an avoidable crash, let's face it, airfields aren't exactly residential streets, not to mention those Hiluxes aren't exactly small either (not to mention they're solidly built), and going off the damage there, it looks as if they've hit something just as f*cking big, if not bigger, some idiot wasn't paying attention and ended up taking someone else's (or their own) life as a result. What's new?

    Some people are saying some bad and downright stupid sh*t, but I'd be pretty p*ssed if some idiot caused an avoidable crash that ultimately delayed my flight for a few hours. Death doesn't mean you can't be annoyed at something. You're essentially using the "respect your parents because they're your parents" argument, sh*t don't work like that.
    At least someone here makes sense.

    Hey!
    Can you please stop commenting on my posts!
    I feel uncomfortable and I don't know how old you are!
    My mum told me not to talk to anyone over 18 online!
    Also you swear a lot and post your racist ideologies.
