This is a question Fears and Phobias

I'll level with you. I'm really freaked out by loose buttons. I'm fine while they're doing their job, but once they're free the evil bastards are a major threat to my life. Tell us what spooks you, and how you cope. Also: church bells, doner kebab salads, death.

Ginger people eh?
Did the wristbanding job at Reading festival one year; I found that the wrists and hands of large ginger people are unacceptably clammy.

I bought Captains of Crush grip strengtheners to improve my ability to be AWESOME
when shaking a persons hand. Nothing better than a person wincing in pain during the handshake, you really get your AUTHORITY across.

I, too, am guilty of this
You've just motivated me to get my CoC out and give it a good squeeze.

Is this the special secret handshake code for
"I'm a d-bag who you'll avoid meeting ever again."

I couldn't possibly comment.
Whoever said anything about there being a secret code? *cough*

there was a bloke with CP doing his shopping the other day
and he called me over and I assumed he wanted me to reach something off a top shelf but in fact he just wanted to do a gangsta style handshake

Made my day. Spastic fistbumps for the win.

they just don't want to touch you because you're repulsive

Is it still acceptable to grasp their fingers and kiss the back of their hand?
Strikes me as a little too forward, but shaking hands with a woman always feels wrong, somehow.

Only if you smirk suggestively, twirl your moustache, raise one eyebrow and say "enchanté "
That's what I do anyway

I like to turn their hand over and spit in their palm

I once crushed a woman's hand because the man who shook hands with me immediately prior to that was one of these alpha types who feel the need to assert their dominance with a power handshake and I wasn't about to be caught out twice

you fucking doofus

You should have headbutted the alpha cunt.

My first boss taught me that the firmest of handshakes was an obligatory start to a meeting. It sets the right tone apparently.

He failed to mention that this isn't recommended for dainty 5'2 women who will actually cry out in pain when you crush their fingers.

your boss was an insecure dickweed
