Once, when a tradesman came to my house, I put out my arm to shake hands and because he was holding keys we fumbled around until I ended up shaking his little finger with all my fingers around it , like milking a cow.
It made me feel ill and still does.

 You split an infinitive in the title! Tisk Tisk!

 Now that you poignantly mention it, I did. Luckily, most folks have no idea what that means.

No worries, I see it all the time. Even in the Star Trek slogan, "To boldly go where no man has gone before."

I prefer the "Buck Howard" handshake

Me too, but in these litigious times, one doesn't want to risk dislocating anyone's shoulder.
