Half of Us Try to Avoid Shaking Hands With People to Avoid Germs . . . Here Are the Top Techniques

Shaking hands with people is a hell of a way to pass germs.  We might as well introduce ourselves to clients and other important people by making out with them.

According to a new survey, almost HALF of people say that sometimes they try to avoid handshakes because they’re worried about the other person’s germs.

And here are the six most common techniques we use to avoid those handshakes:

1.  Acting like we’re looking for something in a purse or backpack.

2.  Pretending to be sick by faking a cough so the other person doesn’t initiate the handshake.

3.  Holding our breath and just walking away.

4.  Pretending to get a phone call.

5.  Fist bumping or elbow bumping.

6.  Ignoring the person and not introducing ourselves

 

Plus, join Jackson on the Street at Wasatch Front Kia tomorrow (Thursday) from 7-9a to see how many handshakes he can get!
