You are still interpreting my post your way , which is OK.
To help to point you in MY direction - but you are free NOT to follow...
I interpreted your post just fine.
You said these kids didn't know how to hang an ID around their neck and you thought that was stupid.
I'm turning it around, wearing an ID at school is stupid and therefore I wouldn't do it, and that's probably what these kids are thinking too.
Of course they know how to hang an ID around your neck, it's not rocket science Smile | :)

As an extreme case - if the instruction is "do not stop on railroad crossing" and such "independent (non) thinker " choose not to follow the instruction - they may make an evening news...
Another extreme case, your government or peers say all people taller than 1.80m should be shot on sight... And you follow instructions blindly because you're apparently a free thinker who follows instructions blindly.
Unfortunately, history is full of such examples Sigh | :sigh:

There's nothing wrong with a little rebellion from time to time, especially when you're young.
