Handshakes Open For Business
Monday, February 1, 2010 17:33 GMTJENKINTOWN, Pa. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) A fist bump just wont cut it at the office.
According to a recent study, people are waving goodbye to shaking hands, preferring to go with alternative greeting methods like a fist bump, high five, or hug.
The threat of germs and disease has been the culprit behind the decline of shaking hands.
However, handshake expert Amy Glass says fist bumps just dont come in handy in certain situations.
She explains, A fist bump at a job interview or on a first date wouldnt go over well. It comes across awkward. A handshake says how professional you are or how open a person you are.
Since the handshake is the only way to touch each other appropriately and legally, Glass says its important to keep it alive despite fear of illness, especially in the workplace.
She provides classes on performing the perfect handshake to ensure the custom keeps going strong.
