Only extreme if it's the first time it's happened. However, I doubt this was the first time that it had happened, or OP would have said something about an accident or such that kept him.

Hopefully, they weren't helicopter parents.

Boyfriend's mom, glancing at her husband with a sly smile: "Well, I think the three of us can still salvage the evening!"

Boyfriend's dad: "Oh… yes. How'd you feel about coming back to our place, watching a little NetFlix, and just seeing where the night takes us?"

I was joking that OP's parents weren't helicopter parents who didn't stop at simply overseeing their child's life—taking it further by intervening when they realized one of their son's dates was going awry and trying to complete it themselves.

Helicopter parent: n. a parent who takes an overprotective or excessive interest in the life of their child or children.

I was joking about them taking it one step further and actually intervening in their child's life. But, by all means, ignore this post like the one before it.
