    He put down Jesse as a reference. When asked, Jesse said, "He was a Richard."

    This a million times. I just can't bring myself to fist bump. I've caved a few times, and it felt like I betrayed Braveheart.

    I'll make a point of awkwardly grasping and shaking a fist before bumping one.

    High-fives! Can't go wrong with a good high-five! And yell, "Woo Hoo!" when you do it.

    Maybe it's a European company -- in which case, of course, a hug and pecks on both cheeks are always good form... at least for male collegues. Not sure about female colleagues.

    Yes. Also, a good old fashioned Up-high, Down-low, Too-slow. Be sure to do the dance while rubbing the new boss's face in it. Perfect first impression. It's kinda like beatin' up the big guy your first day in the yard in prison.

    None, but if you're feeling generous and want to get me a gift to celebrate this momentous occasion, a Dayens Ampino Preamp is currently at the top of my wish list.
