Weary means tired

When you are cautious about something you are wary about it not weary, unless you actually mean you are tired of the situation

I would never actually post this on a thread where this happens because I'm visually impaired so my spelling is appalling at times, but I keep noticing this one and it irritates me for no good reason

I agree with you about what wary and weary mean. The way I pronounce them, they sound different.
