The Official Rules of the American Handshake
Let's hurry through this first part — the fist bump stops now. It's stupid. If nothing else, all it does is lead to an awkward false start. You come with the hand, he comes with the fist, then you reverse roles, and now, you have TRIED greeting each other twice and failed.
