In the distant future, we probably won’t physically greet each other at all. Until then, we’ll have to muddle through somehow.

The Awkward Denial Because Of Freshly Washed Hands

The Awkward Denial Because Of Freshly Washed Hands

This is why I spend quite a bit of time next to the hand dryer or paper towels in a restroom when I'm at a party. If the restroom is crowded and you have to exit with damp hands, then I suggest grabbing a drink as quickly as possible so there's a plausibly innocuous reason your hand is wet.

The Uncertain Wave At Someone Not Waving At You

The Uncertain Wave At Someone Not Waving At You

I always look behind me first before I wave at an ambiguous waver. The upside of this action is twofold. First, you can avoid this embarrassing moment.

The Unintentional Overshot Handshake Turned Wristshake
