Today, after finishing a song during karaoke, a man came up to me and held out his hand. Quite flattered, I shook it, said thanks and that I was glad he enjoyed it. Turns out he was next and just wanted the microphone. FML

80- poor you, your reading skills aren't advanced enough to comprehend what OP wrote. She was probably really good and got a little in over her head.

Yup, It's all about confidence! You know your awesome, just show it! Act like you don't care! Haha
All I can think of when reading this is that stick man, troll, boss face lol

Armedcracker - Are you suggesting that people who sing karaoke are losers? Last I checked, karaoke is a fun way to either A) show off your singing skills and have fun or B) laugh at others who suck but still have fun singing.

There's only one loser I see here.

A) This isn't even close to my rudest comment.
B) I tend not to say stupid shit like that.
C) I don't really care about thumbs (up or down). I try to say things that are amusing, and I occasionally succeed.

I usually upvote because I find the comment amusing. Except once when I was skimming & automatically thumbed up DocB. Once I noticed all I could think was, Nooo! I've become part of the horde!! D: Now I always make sure to read it first.

No, shaking hands is not arrogant. It's quite normal to pass the microphone to the next singer, though. If someone holds out their hand, it's one thing to shake it in confusion, but assuming they did it because they wanted to congratulate you on your performance and saying "glad you liked it" before the other person even said anything seems quite presumptuous and / or arrogant to me.

I've done this... 3 years ago, in my freshman journalism class, one of my friends held her hand out and I shook it, thinking that's what she wanted when she just wanted to take my paper up to turn it in for me. Needless to say, she still teases me about it. :P just laugh it off, OP. it happens :)
