Arthritic fingers/hands; Should I pull a Bob Dole?
I've had opportunities to meet a lot of people lately, and I'm starting to flinch when they put out their hand to shake mine. I'd like to offer my hand, but it's been painful attempting this form of greeting and I don't quite know what to do. I've been thinking about pulling a Bob Dole and stuffing my hand under my arm, or Howie Mandel who offers up his knuckled hand. What would you do in this instance? I hate the idea of having to explain every single time, yet I'd like to keep what limited mobility I have left in my fingers. yikes...What should I do?
