do you shake hands with potential clients

  1. Never shake the left hand of someone from Somalia for that is the hand they use for personal hygiene.

    They are so poor they have no TP.

    Maybe the woman is afraid of anthrax??? Or maybe you are NOT the ladies man you may have thought!
  3. So let me guess, women you go to jail for assult and men you "high five"

    Sounds like you like to spend a lot of time in jail with bubba.

    I'll try to shake the hand of any client, women want equal rights so I treat them equally.

    I shake hands only when it is necessary. This is one tradition I wish would go away, hate it.

    In my job I have to shake hands on a regular basis. Several years ago I broke my hand while snowmobiling, I have since had this bone rebroke several times by too agressive hand shakes. It's been a year now and I think it is finally healing properly, I wish this tradition would go away to0.

    Of course. It is respectful, professional, and almost creates somekind of bond between you both, almost likeyou know eachother.

    I always shake hands with people, I believe shaking hands shows a sign of honesty. Women I don't usually shake hands with, they usually like a hug.
