Question June 30th.

What social customs do you wish would just disappear?

( Again beware of beekeeper stuff)

 

And with this question WOOF will now hand over the Questor Robes, The Staff of Interrogation and the Potions of Truth Serum to @TaleSpinner who has ways to make you talk next month.

Thank you all for participating and rest assured the obtained knowledge is in good paws with WOOF.

 

I'm gonna say handshaking. Frankly, I like handshaking. It's a nice, formal way of greeting one another, and I kinda miss it (thanks a lot, Corona).

 

However, I am a person extremely prone to sweaty hands. And boy, it sure is awkward when you're shaking hands with a bunch of people and you can tell they're trying to get away from your moist palms. I don't really want shaking hands to disappear completely, I think it's great, I just wish there was a substitution. Something like fist bumping. Something that doesn't involve my palms touching someone else. 

 

You did great, Glitterwolf! Thanks for doing the questioning!

I don't have anything against handshaking (except during pandemics), but I'd rather get rid of the belief that every handshake needs to be a firm one to show you mean business or to show masculinity/dominance. I've been accused in the past of having a weak grip on handshakes, but I don't feel squeezing the crap out of someone's hand is a polite way to greet a person.

I agree on hand shaking. Like if I know you you'll probably get a hug but if I don't know you I do t want to be expected to touch you. Some of that may be my OCD but being forced to touch strangers, in any capacity, weirds me out.

In the Netherlands we have this habit of giving 3 kisses ( on the cheeck, thank the Lord!) when we greet someone of the opposite sex.

 

I would not mind if this stopped.

Feels awkward every now and then, and I tend to not do it if I can get away with it.

 

Wait a minute, aren't things that go WOOF supposed to like giving kisses? Or is it because the custom suddenly becomes creepy when you use your whole tongue and lick their cheek? ::P:

I think most people have covered those I'd like to see disappear

 

The biggest one being the assumption that because we have instant communication then responses should also be instant...I've been training my work colleagues that I'll get to it when I have a chance the past few years, but it's only in the last few months when everyone has been working from home that they have finally understood that concept...

In a Society that is becoming progressively more antisocial, I think hanging on to the customs we have might be a good idea.

 

 

I am inclined to agree.
