I feel like i'm getting older. My uncle (mexican side) made sure I knew how to shake hands like I meant it, that it meant something.

Even if you had a dime in your pocket! on a handshake you could count on honest money.

I'm going to start shaking peoples hands more

Yes you....I mean, he, is.

Shaking hands properly is important though.

As well as taking off your sunglasses when talking to someone.

@Amigo,
All fine unless you shake hands like one of our neighborhood association group did - I feared for my hand, and it hurt for days afterwards.

It's important, alright. Once you can fake sincerity and integrity, you have got it made.

@Amigo,
An old boss used to work on handshake - big projects - but he would follow up with a short good contract. This was interesting - he was japanese american, and some of his best clients were chinese american. In other situations, our firm had killer contracts, just as we had killer specs. Me, I hate the paper stuff, although in my own firm we did get a lawyer in on one big contract at the start.
I'm glad to be rid of all that. I've a friend who thrived on it. I think she was nuts.

@ossobuco,
I have to do an addendum - that is not about my business partner - whole other story.

When you shake hands with someone, you are shaking hands with everyone that they have ever shaken hands with.

@ebrown p,
When we have done it in business, it is (to me) an isolated and sincere event.

Amigo will get my point.

Yes, I completely get your point. Its nice when a deal on and handshake works out. It's fun. Before all the technology you were face to face with people more and you shook hands alot. They couldn't call you! They would have to assume things were getting done as planed

@ebrown p,
Too funny!

I'm actually surprised at how many people still want to shake hands, what with the infection paranoia that seems to be everywhere.

@Joeblow,
I meant to attach that as an aside only but lost my train of thought and didn't get it back until it was too late to edit.

Anyway, just wanted to add that I remember the days of sealing a deal with a handshake, though it's been a long time since I've witnessed it.

I worry about doctors. Every one I've dealt with in the past few years seems a quick handshake is in order. They work with sick people every day, right?
