When I was downtown this afternoon I found myself quickly catching up to a woman on the sidewalk. When I was about five feet behind her, she turned around to look at me and I got the impression she was concerned for her safety.

Several years ago I had read an article about how to be considerate in this exact situation, and as far as I could remember it advised pretending to cough and crossing to the other side of the street, so that's what I did. While crossing, I thought I saw her keys sticking out between her knuckles.
