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.

Highly trained fighting machines but incapable of making basic travel arrangements
When I worked on National Rail Enquiries not a Sunday would go by without a mother ringing up for times to get her son back to the army, usually with the cream of our military stood next to her and everything said twice so it took forever. The entertaining part was due to the bases being awkward to get to and they usually rang up fairly late on Sunday afternoon it was often too late to get them back. One chap who had actually managed to make the call himself but with mum prompting at this point handed the phone over to his mother who seemed to think that telling me he would be put on a charge if I didn't magic another train out of somewhere to get him back would make any difference.

Worked at Preston, they obviously thought trains were jet powered.
