How easy to chip concrete slab?

I have a 6 week old concrete slab (4" thick, 3500 PSI, fiber and wire mesh reinforced). I recently dropped a pair of vice grips from about 7 feet up and chipped the crete. I was a little miffed and didn't think it should chip quite that easily. Am I being a little paranoid or is this something to be concerned about? What about an epoxy coating to protect the floor?

How easy to chip concrete slab?

I've heard concrete takes 20 years to fully cure and at 20 years and one day starts to degrade. [My driveway is on the degrade side of the equation].
I wouldnt worry about a chip..
