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.

As much as i love my mum
She can be a bit... erm special.

My mother is a passionate woman, for example when my rugsack broke and i could find one i liked (i was visiting home witha friend so wanted to do some more sight seeing) she went to a late night store, found two bags that meet the description i.e. 110 litres, phoned me and described them. Okay so she wouldn't get the green/army looking one as she thought it would get me into trouble, but she did get the other one, which is a wicked one.

So yeah. One time she called my sisters bank manager and pretended to be my sis to find out how much she had in the bank.

A couple of months back she appeared at my front door (it was arranged but i forgot about it) waking me. I was being a bit grumpy. I shut the door to my room (it was a bit of a mess) and directed her to the kitchen and said i would be down in a sec to make her a cuppa, just needed the loo. I was half way up the stairs when i hear my room being opened. I turned around and shouted at her not to going into my room. She looked at me and using the voice you would with a small child said "what you hiding" and then looked into my room. I know this sounds petty BUT she is always telling me to acted like an adult and then does shite like that to me.

I do love my mum but she winds me up very quickly.

If you like i can tell you about the time she found out about my tattoos. One when i was 19 and the other when i 25.

No wonder she treats you like a child;
you certainly write like one.

I concur...
...though I'm fairly well covered so it would be pretty hard to keep them a secret.

Yeah Bob.
Leave it out. I don't belive English is his first language. The clue is most of the mistakes are with gerunds and infinitives, which are a bugger for non-native speakers. On the other hand, if English is his first language, he is a complete spacker.

Dyslexic and lazy. And English is my first language.

I should take my time more in future
