“Ends with a Handshake (The Linger, The Blood Sucker, The Palm Pincher, The Bone Cruncher)”

Ryan Roth's avatar Ryan Roth

“Can we shake on it?” “But we had a deal!” “You gave me your word!” In most states, all it takes is a conversation and a handshake to form a business relationship as legally binding as one with an extensive written contract. While the advantage of an oral agreement is that you can create a partnership quickly and at little cost, you may be in for some costly surprises during tax season or when disputes arise, such as when it’s time to split the profits. A handshake is a short ritual in which two people grasp one of each other's like hands, in most cases accompanied by a brief up and down movement of the grasped hands. The handshake is commonly done upon completing an agreement. The series “Ends with an handshake” gives a face to the backroom and private deals made behind close doors or the deals in which someone does not get what they greeted upon. The series also uses slang terms for different style of handshakes.
