""Why is it that we shake each others hands,
when we meet upon the street?
Why don't we shake our noses
or kick each others Feet?""
I Shook another mans hand today, after verbal introductions. and his hand fit inside mine, like it was a glove..
i thought to myself " This guy is a real man"
"Where did he learn to shake another mans hand like this"?
"he must be Old School"
i wonder if his DAD taught him to shake hands like My dad did..?
When i was small, my dad Told me how important a handshake was to being a man..
he showed me how to shake hands, as if it was, a family secret, passed down from father to son..
BUT Why does it matter..??
(here is where YOU come in, fellow ATS members)
I live in the mostly, limp-wrist-ed, Seattle area, where the best you can hope for is a limp fish, for a hand shake..
and for some reason I've put up with it,, until today.
this guy was a 45 ish guy from out of state, and shaking his hand MEANT something,, we shared a moment of respect, and Honor among men..
i did my job,, i was there less then 10 mins working,, and he paid me $50.00
and just to say thank you, the man came out and Shook MY hand, and again it was a gesture of recognition,, a tribute, to men being normal, and yet
reverent...to each other..
Society seems to have lost esteem, for Men and old ideals..
must be because Society has lost Self Respect...
what do you think??
can we get our Handshakes BACK??
or does it not matter, in our world of E-commerce
PS if you NEED to know how i get $50 bucks for ten mins work,, read this..
