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.

My Mom
Wasn't too bad, but I remember one incident when I was about ten. My dad is retired navy and always keeps a gun near the front door. One day in early July I was playing with said gun, taking the bullets out, putting them back in. My mom comes inside and finds me. "What are you doing?!"
"Don't worry mom I'm not pointing it at myself"


My mom fell down. I jumped up and ran outside as fast as I could, my heart was pounding. I couldn't believe it. I ran to the end of the drive and just looked up towards the sky.
4th of july fireworks! I was missing them!
However, it took me a while to understand why my parents beat the holy hell out of me.

Did anyone
suggest maybe not keeping a gun where a 100 year old can lay his hands on it?

Culture clash!
What's 4th of July again? We only shoot our parents on the 1st day of BST.

American Independance Day, hence the fireworks

On a side-note
perhaps keeping it where an intruder couldn't get it?

Unless it's an American custom to provide a gun for guests.
