Would you rather have an assignment?

On one of the last days of school, students were filling out a survey and were basically given free time once they had finished.  I told them the only condition was that they had to be quiet.  Apparently, this was too confusing.  This conversation happened:
Student: “What do we do when we’re done?”
Me: “Something quiet.”
Student: “I don’t get it, can you be more ‘pecific?”
Me: “Do whatever you want, at your desk, quietly.”
Student: “I don’t understand what you want me to do.”
