Skip the Shake Shows Your Stance on Handshakes

To shake or not to shake, increasingly, is the question of the day.  TechCrunch calls it the, "no-hand shake movement," as more people are hopping on the bandwagon to skip the shake and avoid the risk of spreading germs. This can present an awkward social situation when the other person offers up their hand in greeting.

John Foster created a new blue wristband, which he labeled 'Skip the Shake' or 'Fight the Flu.' They are sold in 10, 100, or 1000 packs.

So, next time you are getting ready to greet someone, make sure you check their wrist first for a 'Skip the Shake' wristlet. As a self-confessed germaphobe I am all for this straightforward communication.  I’m just not that into tacky plastic bracelets, so I’ll have to wait for the Swarovski crystal version!
