Stop shaking

By Gungahlin Al 1 May 2009 25

We should stop shaking hands, says the Chief Minister.

Or to be fair (as he explained on CM Talkback on 666 this morning) the Prime Minister and his health experts asked those present at COAG yesterday to go forth and promulgate the message – stop shaking hands and “engage correct coughing etiquette.”

So good RA readers – how carried away with the swine flu media hysteria are you?

Would you stop shaking hands? How? As in: how does one NOT accept a proferred hand at an event or wherever without causing offence? “Sorry – you might be contagious…”

What’s Your opinion?

I sometimes tell my dogs to stop shaking, but they just sit there, shaking anyway. Chihuahuas are shaking dogs. Like in the ad.
