40 Kids Who Took Instructions Quite Literally

Kids are innocent souls. What they do is so cute and adorable all the time. But most of the kids are disobedient. Rarely will you kids who are obedient enough to follow what their parents or elders have instructed. But when they follow these instructions to the last word, they don’t realize that they could go against what’s called common sense. So, go ahead and find out 40 cute mistakes who took the instructions quite literally.

In Alphabetical Order

You asked to write the words In alphabetical order. You did not show this child a dictionary. So you can’t blame him/her for their mistake. The kid has done what he/she was told to.

Don’t Play Outside

Bobby has four dimes. Agreed! Amy has 30 pennies! Agreed to this one also. The boy correctly answers the question. But when he was asked to show his thinking, he does that too, in comic book style and the teacher doesn’t want to deduct his score for literally following the instructions.

Take Out Centi Out Of The Meter

Not The Shape, Silly
