    Most hardscape clientel work in office atmospheres.

    Breeding grounds for germs.

    So with the threat of the Swine Flu on our shoulders, do you still shake hands when meeting with prospective and current clients??

    Ya know, about 2 years ago I had heard that Donald Trump does not ever shake hands. He says hands are filthy. I agree.

    Yeah, since the swine flu outbreak, I don't go out of my way to shake hands.

    Anyone offering a flu clinic at their company?

    You worry too much, just carry some hand sanitizer in your truck.

    Hand sanitizer is the biggest crock. You need soap and warm water.

    I'm more concerned about getting to go out and do estimates since things suck here lately. So in other words not worried about swine flu.

    Wouldn't that be all the more reason to be cautious??

    Kinda hard to do any work if you're at home sick with the swine flu. which is why precautions are necessary?

    Kinda like it's hard to run the administrative aspects of a company if your computer gets stolen, therefore one would not leave their laptop on the front seat with the doors unlocked in a grocery store parking lot.............

    Sneeze into your hand when you meet them and they won't want to shake your hand.
