This is a question Helicopter Parents

Back when young ScaryDuck worked in the Dole office rather than simply queuing in it, he had to deal with a claimant brought in by his mum. She did all the talking. He was 40 years old.

Have you had to deal with over-protective parents? Get your Dad to tell us all about it.

Went to Thailand for a month, inbox got full on email and had no mobile phone (this was back in 2000).

I wasn't recieving email replies due to unaware inbox was full, so stopped sending emails after a week into a month long trip.

Parents reaction to lack of email replies from me = report me missing to the UK consulate in Thailand, and phone up my girlfriend asking if she'd heard anything - making her also a bit concerned.

They were a nice suprise waiting for me at the airport, and then I had to go to a Police Station and take myself of the national missing persons list.

That is all.

How do you do that?
"Uh, hi there... I think I'm on the National Missing Persons register."
"Well... well, I'm no longer missing. Look, I'm right here."

pretty much that, showed my passport and signed myself off the list.


My parents were probably within their rights to overreact. I am a fuckwit.
