Are You a Poser?

I constantly run into posers and it often drives me crazy. I wonder why people like to feign something they are not? The posers pollute the world and diminish the coolness of the non-posers. Are you a poser? Based on my interactions with many posers, here are the major telltale signs of posers.

I admit it, I'm a poser....

I'm really a 24 year old blonde, who's traveled the world, instead of the 49 year old grandma I pretend to be....:)
