Shaking Hands

Women and men both shake hands today. Offer your hand at a 90-degree angle to the floor. Firmly grip the other person’s hand, not too limply or too strongly. Pretend you’re squeezing a peach or nectarine. Don’t just shake the other person’s fingers; shake palm to palm. If you can’t shake with your right hand for any reason, take the lead and extend your left hand first. If someone extends his left hand to you, respond with your left hand. If someone doesn’t want to shake hands, don’t take it personally. On the other hand, if someone pumps your arm like she was jacking up a car, stop her by placing your other hand on her elbow.
