Limp handshakes

This is me being grumpy again – just a short post, but a subject that irks me.

Why do so many people have limp handshakes? Is there anything worse that feeling a a limp, sweaty hand in yours? What is the point? When I meet somebody and shake their hand, I want to feel that they are either a) happy to see me, or b) meeting me to conduct business in straightforward manner.

Get it together, use a firm handshake (not a vice!) and look people in the eye at the same time. That’s the end of my grumpy outburst, but unfortunately unlikely to be the end of limp insipid handshakes that make my skin crawl and give me the urge to yell ‘what am i holding in my hand – a bag of mush?’
