With gloves or without?

How culturally sensitive are you? Do the quiz (link to: epicforyou.eu) to find out. (You can scroll down the page for the answers.)

I wasn’t fully sure whether a man should remove his gloves or not when shaking a business partner’s hand in Britain. I learned from etiquette expert William Hanson that it’s perfectly acceptable for a man to keep his gloves on in cold countries with very icy weather. He should remove his gloves when indoors. Women are allowed to shake hands without removing their gloves.
