A new study in the "American Journal of Infection Control" found that a fist bump is way more hygienic than a handshake…a fist bump passes about 95% fewer germs than a handshake.
We all need to get on board with how we great each other because I’m getting sick of it. We just don’t know what to do. That’s great that fist bumping passes less germs…but next time I go in for a “fist”, the other person will probably go in for the “shake”…then there is that awkward moment where I switch to “shake” and they switch to “fist”, and then the next thing you know I’m shaking their fist. Then there are times that someone goes in for the bro hug and you aren’t prepared for it…or vice versa, and then someone if feeling odd for awkwardly pulling another person closer to them. Then there is the fast slap shake thingy…someone inevitably is “that guy” that grabs the hand going in for just a slap.
My point…it’s a dumb one, but it’s still a point….we need the President's help on this. We as a country need to have one set way of greeting each other. Why do we even need to touch each other any way? Let’s be like Japan…lets bow…or let’s make it our own and just have a simple head nod as a greeting. We know what to expect and we will stop these awkward greetings all together.
Bam. Off my soap box.
Now here is something funny. Dogs never seem to learn their lesson no matter how many times they do something…this video is a great example… a mailman in Oklahoma posted a 12-second video of a bulldog running face first into a FENCE trying to get to him. He says it does it every single day.
