He Did Not Cave In to Panic

This sort of group forgetfulness is not all that rare, even with protocols in place to ensure that a member of a group is not left behind. One wonders if this happens less often to individuals who are, let's say, the class comedians, contrarians, or just individuals who have more noticeable personalities within a group. In other words, do individuals who are left behind in certain situations have personality characteristics that make them more prone to being left behind? Anyways, the young man in this case handled himself well. I do wonder where the paper clip came from.

It was only a group of 12 and it is a dangerous pastime.

So I don't blame him for not wanting to go with them again!
