An outward expression of interest and excitement while truly feeling indifferent or annoyed on the inside. Typically exhibited in the workplace.
False enthusiasm is when you say to the boss: "Another new tracking sheet for us to use? This is a great tool to help us be more productive! I can't wait to start using it!"

While Thinking: "If I have to fill out one more freaking tracking sheet, I'm going to go insane."
