Wait for instructions!

Sylvester stood by the railway line and read the sign;

Stop, it said, await instructions.

He wasn’t a patient sort of a fox but he waited. Waited for five full minutes before he ventured to cross the line, cautiously.

Just at that exact moment a fast train came roaring down the line. Sylvester made a mad dash to cross the line before the train came bearing down on him……

And he just made it. Next time, he’d wait a bit more, just to be safe.
