– A Nigerian lady has taken to Twitter to share her displeasure after a man waved at her after giving a handshake to her male companions
– According to her, this is highly disrespectful as he clearly did not shake her hand because she is a woman
– Many social media users have since reacted to the post with opinions of their own
Twitter user, @Queen_Minic, recently left social media users buzzing with reactions after she went on a tirade about a man waving to her and shaking the hands of her male companions.
According to her, it is the height of being disrespectful as he clearly did not shake her hand because she is a woman. She further explained that handshakes are not masculine and not all girls decline one if offered.
She wrote: “So I was in the company of 4guys today , a friend of theirs walked in , “handshake” them and waved at me. This to me is the height of being disrespectful and stupid. If you cannot handshake me all because i am a woman , then don’t bother doing so to your fellow gender. Handshakes ain’t masculine and not all girl declines a harmless handshake .”
“Men see handshaking as a formal way of greeting even to total strangers. Why then do y’all play the “not shaking a stranger “ card whenever it has to do with a lady? What exactly is the problem?I sincerely want to know. I have gotten my heart broken countless times , maturity demand I don’t judge my past with my present. I will never capitalize on my past relationships to punish my present.”
“That you have been snubbed by girls in the past doesn’t in anyway make it right to walk in the gathering of people , handshake just a particular gender and leave the other. While majority of ladies see it as nothing , there are few of us that find it totally disrespectful. Handshakes are formal way of greeting regardless of the gender.”

Still on Twitter gist, it is no news that Nigerian tailors have a reputation for either missing deadlines or delivering something entirely different from what a customer may have ordered and this story is no different.
On another episode of ‘What I ordered versus what I got’, this Nigerian lady literally had her heart broken by her tailor after she got something different from what she had ordered.
