What is shaving across the grain?

Some of us shave across the grain in stubborn areas. Your first pass should always be with the grain. But if your skin isn't too sensitive, you can re-lather and try shaving sideways, across the grain... essentially shaving at a slant. This will give you a closer shave, but those of us with extra sensitive skin should stick to shaving directly with the grain only.
