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.

The ole' trouble n' strife...
I don't know if she's over-protective or just zealously adheres to guidelines, but when it says "Boil fresh water from the tap and allow to cool for 30 minutes" on the side of the baby formula tin, she always prepares it when EXACTLY 30 MINUTES HAVE PASSED. If 31 minutes have passed then she needs to start over. When I point out that the tin doesn't say "Allow to cool for EXACTLY 30 minutes AND NO LONGER!!!" then I'm just being difficult.
