Do you shake hands with a doctor?
Today during lunch we had a most interesting conversation.
The question: if you go to see a doctor and walk in to his office, do you shake his hand?
On our table, today, the French girl, the German boy and I agreed that we did, at least in our home country do so, while the English guy maintained that he wouldn't. A doctor, he argued, provided a service and hence, just as you don't shake hands with a butcher or a ground stewardess you don't do so with a gp. So unless he's the family surgeon whom you've known for years and years you wouldn't shake hands with your doctor.
What do you guys think? I think we might have touched upon a very interesting cultural difference here.
