Lately, I'm more often annoyed by fake flavors in food. A recent raspberry muffin mix made nice muffins but the fakeness of the raspberry flavoring was horrible. That goes for many other flavorings of real food that isn't actually in the items. Yuck!

People who are nice to others to their face then talk crap about them behind their back. If someone doesn't like me I want them to be honest about it and not lie to my face.

People! Some just can't be themselves. They're the thieves of the soul. They steal bits and pieces from anyone and everyone and then plagerize their empty lives on the blood, sweat and tears of others.

People who insist on showing you who they want you to think they are, rather than sharing their true nature. I know they’re afraid that what or who they aren’t enough and so the need to impress with exterior extravagance, but they’re not fooling anyone. And the attention they receive in return is just as fake.

Lips and those puffy cheeks. They look soooo fake. Why do they do that? Marlo and Goldie just to name a few celebs my age who have had their faces done do not look younger...just fake.

I still do not understand, and do not think I ever will, why lemonade is made with fake lemons, but washing-up liquid is made with real lemon juice.

Does that seem right to you?

(And don't get me started on how they get the non-stick teflon coating to stay on the pans.)

Feelings. I hate when people fake their feelings. If you're sad, let the tears fall; if you're furious, throw things. But if you're not truly experiencing those emotions, don't pretend. Everyone reacts to things differently, so there's no need to fake a reaction just because that's what people expect in a given situation.
