Are Hugs Ruining Your Life? You're Not Alone

"What about my female employees? They’re awesome! We all bond and hang out after work. But I’m their boss. Is it hug or shake when we run into each other at Whole Foods? The more I think about it, the more I spiral counter-clockwise down the toilet of anxiety. It all adds up to only a few seconds of awkwardness per day—and maybe I read into things more than others would—but I hate the thought that I may be inflicting awkwardness on the women in my work life by greeting them like a deer greets headlights."
—Finally someone dares speak about the tyranny of affection under which we all cower.

A coworker? It's never hug, what's wrong with America these days? Why would I ever want to be hugging my boss?

@messica What if you're boning them?

@BadUncle Boning without affection is a capitalist-American specialty.

That's not awkward. Awkward is running into your martial arts master on a sidewalk and bowing in public.

Jack Donaghy was, as usual, correct: "What is this, the Italian parliament?"
