Two things today:
Have you ever made a cringe-worthy first impression?
I've made a few, but I think my wife wins the golden chalice of cringe with this one:
A few years ago she was at her boss' house for a party.
There was a mix of friends, family and co-workers.

- How long you have to make a first impression. Science has the answer!
- Concrete action steps
She playfully extends her middle finger. At that PRECISE MOMENT her boss' father turns around and intercepts the middle finger.
I like to think that time and space slowed down while my wife watched him go through different emotions. Confusion, disbelief, denial, shock, sadness, and finally disdain.
After the fabric of reality had stabilized, he looked away while saying "How RUDE."
This story makes me laugh every time. It's just the best.
Did I mention that he was also a minister?
My wife accidentally flipped off her boss' father who was a minister.
If you don't think that's funny, please go away. Leave and never come back.
- Eye Contact
- Firm Handshake
- Spontaneous Compliments
Also, don't accidentally flip them off.
