I just thought I would start a thread about being treated like a little kid or being referenced as being toddler-ish at work.
For example, at work today we were cleaning up a 100 foot tall tree that fell over last night in the wind storm. There was about 18 inches of brush and limbs I was wading through to get to the topmost branches to chip and I fell down and was on my back. My coworker then came over to help me up, but in stead of just helping me get my footing or nudging me to up a little, he picked me up from my arm pits all the way up till my feet were dangling and my stomach was exposed (glad I wasn't wearing my Spiderman boxer-briefs boxer-briefs or heaven forbid my goodnites) and then set me back down on stable ground. To top off the experience he the said just as he would to a little kid "easy there buddy, be careful". I felt just like a toddler being helped up by a parent.
Also at this job I sometimes have to sit in the middle seat of our work truck which is at least at least an inch higher than the driver or passenger seats and my coworkers (including the one who picked me up by my armpits) just love to comment that I look like I am riding in a car seat or a booster seat and they even compare me to their own kids who are all under the age of 6.
There are more examples, but these are just a few of the ways that I take pleasure from working a manual labor job. Does anyone else have experiences at work or elsewhere in which they get treated or refered to as being toddler like?
