Just smile and nod. Fake people have a tendency of pulling people down. Resist stooping to their level. Take the higher road. Let em have whatever gratification they seek with their fake actions. Similar to a child that acts out to gain attention, try to ignore the negative behaviors, as this will only add fuel to their fires. Just smile and nod and don't open up to em. You'll be fine.

I don't. I ignore. If they can't be real, then I can't waste my time.

 In my home life, I refuse to as well. But, when I was working, I had no choice. I couldn't refuse to work with others due to their fake nature. Sometimes you cannot control your exposure to fake people.

I ignore the ones I can and take the rest with a grain of salt.

I don't. I can't stand to feed into fake people's lives. The minute I can tell that all people want is attention I automatically shut down and deal with them as little as possible.
