    Clapping

    I have discovered the lost art of "clapping."

    When walking downtown, I see most drivers waiting to pull out onto the street with their heads turned looking away from me. I am not about to walk in front of their car unless they can look me in the eye.

    So I clap. Three times.

    They turn just in time to see me cross in front of their car. I go my merry way on the sidwalk while they resume looking for a space in traffic as they tell their cell-phone buddy about the weird clapping people in Atlanta.

    One-way traffic is a very smart idea, except that drivers will never look your way if you are walking against traffic.
