Types of greetings around the world

Two businesswomen in suits shaking hands and smiling.

It has been a long time coming, but it appears we are near to the end of the handshake, as we know it.

One of the main factors  that seems to have brought about the demise of the handshake, as we know it,  may be all the bugs and viruses that have been going around recently. The handshake is being perceived as a medium that can spread germs

The next obvious step is the  fist bump, but the question is, if someone extends their hand to you for a handshake, do you respond with a fist bump, just to avoid some nasty germs?

 I think that the fist bump, will gradually catch on, even with  mainstream business circles. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that if you will get the job if you fist bump someone who is extending their hand to you expecting a handshake.

TOAD THE WET SPROCKET LYRICS – Good Intentions  (1995)

It’s hard to rely on my good intentions
When my head’s full of things that I can’t mention
Seems I usually get things right
But I can’t understand what I did last night
It’s hard to rely on my own good senses
When I miss so much that requires attention
Have to laugh at myself sometimes
And I can see that I’m not blind

There’s little relief
Give us reprieve
For all the things I’ve left behind
I’m positive that I’m not blind

I’m not afraid things won’t get better
But it feels like this has gone on forever
You have to cry with your own blue tears
Have to laugh with your own good cheer

It’s hard to rely on my good intentions
When my head’s full of things that I can’t mention
Seems I usually get things right
But I can’t understand what I did last night

There’s little relief
Give us reprieve
Imagining the world outside
I’m positive that I’m not blind

I can’t be hard on you
’cause you know I’ve been there too
Learned a lot of things from you

But life gives little relief
Give us reprieve
And when everyone is cold as ice
I clinch my fists and close my eyes
Imagining the world outside
But I can see that I’m not blind
