The Handshake

The Handshake

I was introduced to someone and when I extended my hand to give a firm handshake, I got in return four fingers and barely a thumb, wet noodle type of handshake. I felt like I was shaking a limp, wet and slimy COLD DEAD FISH! She gave me no eye contact, and in fact, was looking the other way! This isn’t the first time I’ve received a handshake like this.

As far back when I was a child, I was taught the importance of this simple act when dealing with first encounters. Don’t these people realize it’s the handshake that gives a favorable or unfavorable first impression?

I’ve also gotten another type of handshake, the powerful crushing Mike Tyson handshake that actually has brought tears to my eyes!

Please give me your thoughts on this simple gesture of handshaking, and any particular experiences you’ve encountered.
