Life Lessons: Soggy Handshakes

Wet-Ones singles are remarkably handy to have around the office for the inevitable times when you have to greet a sweaty-handed job applicant.

Of course, the etiquette problem lies with subtly wiping your newly germ-infested, soggy hand without letting the person know why you're doing it.

That's why you should always keep a plate of chicken bones handy. This way you can pull out a wipe and say "Pardon me, I just had lunch and I didn't have the chance to wash my hands before our interview."

Then you'll feel free to conduct the interview comfortable, germ free, and confident in the knowledge that I've turned the tables -leaving the sweaty-palmed candidate wondering how long it will be before they can wash their hands.
