Fake #126

If there's something that irritates me, it's the fake hug. When people give me fake hugs, it feels so artificial and insincere. I call it the fake hug, because it's technically not a hug. It's more like putting your arm around someone's shoulder without barely touching that person. Sometimes I try to avoid it, but other times I end up being dragged into the hug. There's no harm in receiving a fake hug but it's how I feel afterwards. Sometimes I wish I had the courage to say, "either hug or don't hug." I soon realized that I wasn't the only victim of the fake hug, and somehow I felt relieved but even more annoyed. I SAY, BAN THE FAKE HUG!
This is for prompt 5 for Contest #126.

    Sorry, I think I'm a culprit of giving fake hugs. I'm uncomfortable with hugs in general so when people hug me I can't help it. Is it hypocritical of me to join your chant? I guess I'd like to ban the hugs that force my fake hugs in the first place... So ban the fake hug! :)
