I Believe in Handshakes





I'm extremely awkward when I first meet new people. I never know what to do or say. Sometimes I attempt to crack jokes, which are usually lame as hell. Sometimes I get really quiet and have a ridiculously fake smile/laugh. Sometimes I accidentally say a cuss word or five. Rarely I'm completely cool and normal.

Since I usually make an ass of myself when I meet new people, I always make sure I have a damn good handshake.

I don't like to be all judgy and stuff, but if you're a wussy when you shake my hand, I will notice. And I will always remember it.

I really don't know why I'm so passionate about having a firm handshake. Maybe it's because I'm a 5'1 blonde chick who looks 16. I don't want people to think I'm a twit or something. Like, "though she be but little, she is fierce."  B O O M.



I believe in handshakes, especially when meeting someone new or seeing an old acquaintance. Don't hug me or kiss my hand unless you're a gay male.



Thanks.

  1. I'm with ya! So very annoying when one gives you the half hand kind of shake like its the early 1900s. Especially when said person is shaking your hand before "asking you to hire them" in the interview process!!
