How to Love a Snob

What do snobs and limp handshakes have in common? The short answer is that they are two of my biggest pet peeves. In some cases they go hand in hand…no pun intended. And yes, since these are two of my biggest, it means I have more. Hey, I’m working on it.

They point out your problem and offer steps to alter faulty behavior, but how long does behavioral modification last when it is warring against a resistant heart and a stubborn will?
