Comments: The Not-So-Hidden Lessons of the Four Way Stop

Amen to that, my wife will actually take alternative routes as to avoid to dreaded 4-way stops......

It reminds of a long ago post about those damn stop lights on west circle drive on HWY 14, I used to live in the manor and know exactly what you were getting at....Those lights are out ot get ya.

And those lights are STILL terrible. Especially around 5 p.m. No rhyme or reason to them. Damn they're annoying!

This may sound odd, but it's surprisingly effective:

When walking in a crowd I will actually signal my intended direction when approaching someone head-on. I point my flat hand in the direction that I'm going to go around the person I'm approaching, and unusual though it is, it's rarely misunderstood -- they go the other way and I rarely end up doing the "stranger dance".

In driving, if the other person hesitates, I just go. of course sometimes the blockages are just unavoidable in cars.
