that person who is out to work their  own agenda.  After my upbringing picking out the person in a social situation who is fake should be no problem.  It amazes me that people go to so much trouble to hide how fake they really are.  My life used to be such an open book, now I share to a point and stop because of the idea that I may be dealing with one of these said people and I don't even know it yet.  I had this very encounter recently with a woman who is supposed to be a "certain kind of person"....her term not mine.  She was going on and on about how we should just be BFF's and then when I didn't fit into her agenda she turned on me....in public no less.  I had to excuse myself from the event as I couldn't put up with the drama anymore (crying jag no less, two year old tantrum).  These kinds of displays happened around me in high school, I won't play juvenile mind games anymore.  The extra unfortunate thing about it all is I have to deal with this woman, no way around it unfortunately.  So now I have to find a way to be civil without being overly friendly and not investing anything more in my dealings with her.  I have been on a path to working towards a better way of life for my own sanity but this woman's mission it seems is to totally throw me off the course I was on.  I have decided though that one woman especially one that is being mean for no good reason should not be what sways me.  I could have let myself get mired down in all this but I am making a choice to just not!!!!!
