Autistic kid

There was a boy on the subway just now who looked to be about 14 years old. He was with his father. I think the kid was autistic, because his behavior was very like Raymond in Rain Man. He even looked like a young Dustin Hoffman in glasses.

“They shouldn’t be allowed to do that… They shouldn’t be allowed to do that…” “What?” “They’ve closed the doors. We’re not even moving. Oh, no, now we’re moving… How fast are we moving? Uh-oh, what’s that noise? What’s that noise!?” “It’s the wheels.” “The wheels are metal?” …and so on. It was quite entertaining, really.
