Ack. I finally met a sales rep with whom I’ve previously only had telephone and web conferences. He was a real piece of work, lemme tell ya.
Anyway, he shook my hand, complete with the second hand enclosure wherein my hand was trapped between his two paws for much longer than I would have liked. He also did that thing where he pulled me in for this kind of half-hug so that my face was kind of mushed up against his chest and my body was crushed between his huge arm and his side.
As if being touched wasn’t bad enough, this guy was swimming in cologne. Admittedly, it wasn’t offensive as it could have been, but still. I sure as shit don’t want to smell like him all day. I’ve got to buy a new top. Luckily for me, my office building is attached to a mall. Unfortunately, the stores don’t open until ten. So for about a half hour, I’m going to be sitting here making myself gag every few minutes.
