    I am. I always find myself babysitting, holding wallets, phones, drinks, purses, pants, other articles of clothing or cock-blocking when needed.

    Anyone else?

    I need a vacation that doesnt involve hookers, porn or Eastern New Mexico.

    My birthday is this weekend and I'll be damned if I am going to be in charge....

    Being neither of the avian or female variety, it would appear I am unqualified to answer this question.

    oh lord no. i am the complete opposite. i have a few friends who are the "mother hen" type. They usually watch out and take care of everyone. Grateful to have them as friends.

    Its a positive characteristic but its your birthday, let loose.

    I used to be but it really does get boring after awhile so not anymore. Who wants to be going out only to be babysitting all the time? No thank you, I'd rather go out alone! I have no problem interacting with strangers, I find it fun getting to know new people. I still do go out with friends however but I don't have to worry about babysitting them which is nice.

    LOL! I was given that title here, too. But my friends actually know me as a Fix-It and a Problem Solver. Which is a kind of Mother Hen, but with a more active, practical focus.

    When somebody breaks their "toys" they bring them to me to fix. And I truly enjoy solving problems that people encounter, it's like a mental game for me.

    At the same time, I try to resist being the one in charge. It happens kinda naturally because of my Army career, but that's exactly why I no longer welcome it. Been there, done that, now is my quiet time, when you pass the baton to someone else.

    But still hard to do, I become like a bloodhound that's got the scent, always want to take over a situation as soon as I detect a gap in leadership & direction. Difficult for me to sit on the sidelines, but not my game anymore, so I've got to learn to let go, my turn to be pampered not pushy.

    I am the one they go to when their car breaks, needs service, a tire changed. I pick them up and get them home. I get called when they are in jail or crying or need a swift kick in the ass.

    It gets old....
