On out of town business trips I’ve observed an interesting phenomenon that seems to occur with surprising regularity. It’s a phenomenon which I’ll call “hugging the client”. I call it that because that’s exactly what happens.
While my history as a “hugger” is spotty at best and ridiculed at worst*, I am not opposed to a good hug. I’m just surprised that, after a mere 24 hours, people known to me in only a professional capacity decide that they want to hug me. If it only happened once, I could chalk it up to that one person. But it seems to be happening with every client I meet. I guess it’s a testament to my charm and/or strong and inviting arms**?
