I have an interview tomorrow and I know for sure that a man will be conducting it. It’ll be the fourth time this semester I will have to go through my “I’m sorry, I don’t shake hands with men for religious reasons” shpeel. It’s actually getting kind of annoying now. I either have to have something in my hand or stand in an awkward position where my hand isn’t in clear view or come up with a random tactic on the spot. I wish people would just get it already, I mean we’re not that foreign :p. This freshman kid asked me to sign his petition for student senate the other day and while I was signing, he asked me if I was an exchange student after I went through my shpeel. So not cool.
Sisters, how do you get out of a handshake? Any ideas?.. help.
