Parallel Synchronized Randomness

You know when you are in a tight space and you are on the same path as someone walking from the opposite direction? Yeah then you went to the right and that person also went to your right. So you moved to the left and yes, he also moved to the left. At this point usually both of you will smile and someone will have to stop and say “you first”. Unless of course both of you said that! Then it will be an infinite action and re-action that will leave both of you dead in your tracks :P

Anyway, that is called “Parallel Synchronized Randomness”. Good to know.

So what is your trick to get out of this awkward “dance”? For me, if it’s the ladies (esp cute ones), I’ll freeze and say “after you miss”, if it’s a guy then I’ll fight for my space!
