Meet people on the bus 2

I enjoy meeting people and don't mind having a conversation with most people, within reason. I'm also a handshaker and I'm usually the first one to extend my hand. But I did learn a lesson once about shaking hands with just anyone.

About twenty years ago, I rode the bus from uptown Whittier to Long Beach, on a regular basis. While at the bus stop one day, some guy walked up to me and struck up a conversation, after a minute or so, I extended my hand and he we shook hands. When he pulled back his hand I saw that his hands and arms were filled with big, ugly, open sores, filled with puss. I didn't know whether to sh*t or go blind. I looked down at my hand and it was wet from the puss. I actually wiped it on the bench. The bus came and I got on. All I could do was hold my hand in a upright postion in front of me. I'm sure I looked odd. I got off the bus and walked about two miles with my hand in the same position. I don't know if it was my imgination, but I swear, I could feel the germs and bacteria spreading. My wife opened the door when I got home and I made a beeline to the bathroom and immediately washed my hands, with soap and water and Alcohol. Sometimes you meet the nicest people on the bus.

I wouldn't say its the equivalent of going out for a drink at your favourite pub, and in fact sometimes you end up having to listen to a complete loon, but it is possible to have a pleasant chat with stranger or catch up with a friend on the ride to work.
