I don't like handshakes. I don't understand and wish they'd go away. I do them in work settings if I have to and I can do them well (no limp fish hands here) but I will wash my hands asap afterward (ocd).

At work the students will always try to get me to shake hands or do some stupid high five thing. I just leave them hanging (partially because they're students and it's funny). Some of them even do it on purpose because they know I won't reciprocate. They say as they walk up "watch, she won't do it". Then they say "Aw, that's so mean!" and I say "and what ever gave you the impression I was nice?" And I laugh in their face. MUHAHA.

I am perfectly fine with handshakes. It's my favorite form of non-verbal greeting. It's better than that dreadful "three kisses" business. But you wouldn't give grandma a handshake, that doesn't make sense.

Good idea. Might as well print this and put it on my front door.
I'd add a risk disclaimer: 'Severus does not like being an object of sucking up, flattering or being hit on. Do so at your own risk'.

I say bring back the 18th century when men used to bow and women used to curtsy. Women also wore gloves past the elbow and got to carry around parasols outdoors. As a result they had beautiful, youthful-looking skin and needed only show a flicker of wrist or ankle to get men's hearts pumping with lust. These days you have to work out for 6 months to get a tight bikini butt or inject collagen for huge Angelina-type DSLs to get a second look. :P
