I can’t stay in the same room with these guys. It would just be too awkward. The type of handshake where your hand gets pushed away. All I can say is thanks. To God be the glory.
I have no such problems. I find them very easy to look in the eye. They don’t look away and so it is easy to size them up and they return the favor.
My problem starts with men who won’t look me in the eye and hold the handshake firmly but not aggressively for at least three seconds. I know immediately that I make them uncomfortable for some reason.
I only wish I was experienced in thinking I understand what makes some people tick 40 years ago as I feel now. The honest and direct ones are easy. The others you don’t trust until you are proven wrong.
My Son usually gets a kick out of how fast and accurately I sum up the officers when I meet them.
