F "Dead Fish" Handshakes
 
I wanted to get in on the F craze! What up with people who shake your hand like their own is some dead fish flapping around? Are you one of those?

A firm handshake isn't too much to ask for, is it?

And on the other side I hate it when some guy tries to break your hand.

There needs to be a firm middle ground. They should teach this at a young age.

Actually, one day, when I was about 10 or 11, my Dad sat me down and said "Son, it's time you learned how a man shake hands and this is why its important to do it right". He practiced with me, making sure I didn't deadfish or crush, for about half an hour all the while telling me why it was important for a man to have a good, solid handshake. I remember feeling pretty damn grown up.

Just one of those small "Dad" things I'm grateful for.

My boss has one of those limp wristed handshakes. The first time I met him I thought of the movie "LIFE" with Eddie Murray and Martin Lawrence.

"Your hands nice and soft, supple, like a lady!"

Thats why I call him "Jingaling"!

This is just a Catholic thing I think... but anyone ever in church during "our father" when you've got to hold hands....

I usually have an obnoxious family member to the right, and then just a random innocent bystander to the left....

The family member will try and be a clown and crush my hand... and I've got to fight back... so I squeeze back, and inadvertantly squeeze the person to my lefts hand.... man thats embarrasing....

plus I'm always afraid I have sweaty hands...

I'm Catholic too, but I refuse to hold anyone else's hand. I don't know when that tradition started because I know that wasn't the norm when I was a kid, but either way, it doesn't fly with me.

If someone gives me a limp handshake, they might as well go ahead and smack me on the ass because that's probably what he's thinking.

Cue TMC's [I]'High Opinion Of Ones Own Rump'[/I] speech.

The nerve of the guy!

I have two 12s and a 1000-watt amp baby.

Girls have lady lumps. I have Malcolm mounds.

I probably should get those checked out.

Re: F "Dead Fish" Handshakes
 
I agree, there has to be a middle ground as Matty stated earlier. I also can't stand it when someone wipes their hand on their pants or something and then extends their hand for a shake...screw that, where the hell has that hand been that you had to wipe it off????
