Who Should Extend Hands First for A Handshak? The Eldest Or youngest? by Nobody: 7:54pm On Oct 06, 2014
I just thought about this, thats why i raised up this thread...
For instance, Let's say obi is 30yrs old, and Bayo is 20yrs old...they both know each other wella..
One faithful evening, as obi was coming back from work, he meets Bayo on the road...
Now my question is, who should extend his hand first for a hand shake, Obi or Bayo?

Anyone,but bayo can hold his right wrist with his left hand before the handshake as a sign of respect undecided

it depends on individuals,there's nothing wrong in a younger one extending a greeting hand first

The Older, but when he fails to act rightly, his responsibilty could be taken over.

This is what I simply do because when you are blessed than some elders and you failed not to extend your hand first ... They may think you don't wanna touch/shake them ...

I just hold my right hand with my left hand and bow sef to shake elders (all na lielie joor) but Officially , If I'm your boss but you older than me .... I will just shake you even with my chest out and shoulder-up though with smile grin
