How dare they have some fun!!! Leave them alone for crying out loud. Your comment makes it sound like they should be locked in a classroom all day

I expect they want him out of the way so as they can get in to the cinema to watch the film about him.

When I was that age we were locked in a classroom all day with nought but long division and the threat of a good thrashing from the cane should we step out of line or get one of the sums wrong.
Ah those were the days. Now I slave for the man with the threat of a thrashing if I don't put the right amount of sugars in his tea.

Those were the days! A good thrashing never did me any harm. I can now do mathematics and write and speak the Queen's english. How many teenagers can do that nowadays?
