The 180-degree rule is important even in scenes that have a single person - imagine a character saying "I'm going to the store" - we cut to a shot of her walking right to left and then cut to a shot of her walking left to right - the implication is that she's headed back, she's either been to the store, or forgotten her car keys. Simply deciding where to put the camera has given us a shortcut - we don't need a store, cutting back and forth tells the viewer that they've been there.
