Lost in Translation

I’ve raised this a few times previously in comics and blogs and I’ll no doubt raise it again in the future as a reminder to myself to stop putting my foot in it.I’m pretty good at interacting in a conversation (and I can produce referees who will vouch for it). The trouble is when I try to interact with people that I haven’t yet established appropriate boundaries with, I tend to cross said boundaries in a whirlwind of cultural taboo’s and social faux pas’.

Now I could tell you that it’s because I moved around a lot as a kid and had trouble making friends, or I could tell you that I’ve been double crossed by too many people to let anyone get close, but as I’ve pretty clearly demonstrated (with diagrams I might add) it all comes back to evolution. That’s not to say that I won’t be fighting it every step of the way, it’s just to say that if I do put my foot in it, please understand that I mean no disrespect, it’s merely science.

and I’m working on it…
