A short story on timing

I was standing at an intersection contemplating whether to turn left or to cross to the other side of the street. Five seconds into my indecision, I looked up and there he was standing at the opposite side of the road. He looks at me and waves.

“Stay where you are, I’m going to cross the road,” I tell him as I wait for the light on the little red man to turn green.
