Hello, Goodbye

I am assuming by now that you have all heard in some form or another about the coronavirus?

So how do you say hello and goodbye to people now, without, hopefully, offending them? When you’re with people you know, you can joke about it. At my Grans 80th, we all did the elbow tap and laughed about it. It’s becoming more and more of a thing at the moment though. How does one say hello or goodbye without actually touching?

The elbow pump:

This is where you fold your arms and just tap your elbow with the other persons elbow.

The Namaste:

This is where you place your hands into a prayer position and bow, while saying “Namaste”

  1. The French are usually very touchy feely and we’ve happily settled for a wave and a shouted greeting from the appropriate distance, or further.

  2. I had chatted with a new person recently, and at the end of the convo he said…
    “I would shake your hand… but???”

    I said “oh no worries – lets just not”

    As we continued to maintain a 6 foot away zone

    You stay there – I’ll be here and a smile is fine ✌️😄
