It happens when you go to give a normal handshake and your friend tries to give you a "bro" handshake and what results is just flat out uncomfortable.

Is this when you go to give a normal shake, and the other person desperate to "outsqueeze" you, grips too soon - causing them to uncomfortably squeeze your bunched up fingers?

the awkward ones (or just plain creepy/uncomfortable/wtf) ones i don't like are:

the bonecrusher (seriously, why do men do this to me??!)

the sweaty limp-noodle (eeeehhhhh)

the fag-i-can-see-through-your-repressed-faggotry handshake (kind of like a debutante offering her hand or something, i've gotten it on several occasions)

ahahaha, i also have done the 'bro' handshake when someone wasnt going for it, which resulted in me tripping and falling into their torso instead of shoulder bumping

I always address a bad handshake and then re-initiate a good one.

Not sure if a lot of people are like me when it comes to this, but I substantially evaluate someone based upon their handshake and initial presentation.

i wonder if men laugh when i counter their bone-crushers with my weak attempt at squeezing back. i've gotten pretty good at realizing just before they try to crumble my hand to ashes and squeezing back with all my might so that they can't get the knuckles to touch. mother fuckers.

i either give a firm, manly handshake, and/or "bro" it up when appropriate

but when i want to fuck with people, my two favorites are:

1. reach out for a regular handshake...just as your hands are touching, use your index finger to quickly tickle the palm of the person whose hand you're shaking
2. reach out for a regular handshake...begin to shake the person's hand in a firm, respectful way...quickly yank their hand into your genitals

When someone's shake is so weak it's like they aren't making any effort to actually grip my hand, it makes me rage a little bit.

One of the Judges I've been in front of has a dead fish handshake. I thought that was forbidden in males over 50.

^^fwiw, some guys will hold back their handshakes when shaking a woman's hand...i don't dead fish it, but i don't squeeze with the same strength as i would another man either

He only offers his middle three fingers with a slightly cupped palm.

gross.

the only thing worse are "captain handshake" guys who try to show dominance by gripping your hand too early making it seem like you are the one with the dead fish handshake. you can usually tell who these guys are and when they're going for that move. i always shove my hand into that thumb/index finger socket to get the upper hand

It's not a bad way of blackmailing yourself into a job.

Look if you don't give me this job, I'm going to tell everyone you tried to grab my junk.

FWIW, if you shake someone's hand with your pointer finger extended so that it runs parallel with their arm, douchenuggets can try to alpha-squeeze you all they want and you can just sit there and laugh.
