aware people and unaware people don't mix

It must not be as inate as I think it is to asess a situation and act appropriately. I mean, upon entering a situation, your brain automatically goes to work figuring out who people are and what their relation to eachother is and what type of atmosphere you are in and what type of humor or topics of conversation or gestures or loudness or general behavior would be appropriate for the given circumstances. Right? So your brain puts things in your possible topics bank and tells your body to be still and your voice to hush and your sarcasm to halt, if that's what the situation needs. Our brains know how to do this. They are great at it. Why then does it sometimes fail completely to happen? Do some brains not have this capacity? Or it's grown too rusty? Or people have overridden it with their sheer will to corrupt? It is sometimes very hard for people with a healthy-hyper sense of awareness happening naturally all the time to understand, spend time with the UnaWares of the world.
This was all brought to mind from some experiences last night and then it made me remember UnaWare. We once knew a girl named Anna (on-a) Ware. Matt started calling her UnaWare. A more fitting, more natural evolution of a namesake has never occurred. Even Kakie pales in comparison. There are more UnaWares in the world than I ever knew.

Wow. It's true. You should have seen my ward yesterday. (Also, I linked to your blog through "please remember", and that through a friend's blog. So there you have it.

UnaWares ruin my life and my dignity.

And they don't even know it.

This post is probably about your brother's inappropriate behavior at your place of employment. I can sense that. He picks the wrong humor and gestures. His sarcasm rarely halts. It's OK, I'm sure he already knows this and is simply incapable of (unwilling to) change. So he's not really unaware. He's a jerk.
