OT - Women get a grip!

Literally, enough with the limp handshakes! What's that all about, anyway?

I do pretty good on a handshake, I squeez as hard as I get..but I'm in a business world at work, so I have to.

I'm a stay at home mom, so not much business here, though I would say I have a fairly firm handshake...everyone probably thinks that about themselves though, huh. :) I think it's creepy to shake a limp hand.

I agree - limp is creepy and crazy, frenetic hand shaking is weird. Do you think limp hand shakers know it's limp? And what do you suppose happens when two limpy hands try and shake?

That reminds me...I remember getting my hand squashed by my high school principal at an awards ceremony. A month later at graduation, when his hand was tired from shaking 100 hands before mine, I got me some payback.

my handshake is firm but I also have bone joint problems the big "A" which make it hard to squeeze as firmly as I can and it hurts when someone squeezes too hard on my hand so if they are limp hand shkers maybe there is an underlying condition for it.

I was thinking the same thing as the last poster. You have to remember there are a lot of people out there who have pain that you are not aware of. I have a terrible time when someone shakes my hand. I know another person who can't feel how hard they are holding your hand.

I've never shaken hands with a man with a limp grasp, but maybe they power through it. It seems to be a girl thing.
