Could this be part of AS?

Many people are rude and annoying. Most of them probably don't have AS. However, if you don't think those labels fit you and don't understand why people think you're a jerk, being rude, or annoying then you're probably more likely to have AS.

NTs aren't perfect.

I find when people call me those things; it is usually because they either
1. Don't like me
2. I don't let these people control me or they don't like to take "No" for an answer
3. They just are unhappy people
4. If I didn't let them get their way

I'm sure everyone gets called those things at some points of their life by some people, but it could very well happen to those on the spectrum more often due to miscommunications, especially when it comes to being called rude.
