5 Options Better Than a Handshake


The leading coronavirus expert Dr. Anthony Fauci said this week that the traditional greeting of shaking hands should stay a thing of the past, even after the coronavirus pandemic is under control.

“As a society, just forget about shaking hands,” Fauci said. “We don’t need to shake hands. We’ve got to break that custom.” And just like that the CDC advised Americans to bump elbows instead the handshake.

Bumping elbows though? When we have so many other great options for politely and non-awkwardly avoiding a handshake:

Option #1: Finger Guns

Option #2: The Nod

Option #3: Vulcan Salute

Option #4: Foot Shake

Option #5: Smile & Wave

If none of these work you could always yell “BAD TOUCH” and run away.
