"My mom is the embarrassing one, although dear old dad has his moments. When I was in 4th grade, mom took me to get my very first training bra (important detail: she hates shopping). So we pick out the basic bra, and I grab it and start looking for the changing room. She stops me and says 'oh no, we don't have time for that, you can just try it on here.' She then proceeds to put this training bra on me, in the middle of the department store, over my shirt. Then of course she's got to make sure it fits, by which I mean feel me up. tl;dr I got felt up by my mother in a store while wearing a training bra over my clothes."
MovieGirl424 never could have imagined what would happen during her birthday.
"At my fourteenth birthday party my mom was lying on the couch while my friends and I all ate pizza in the dining room. My back was to the living room so I was the only person who couldn't see my mom. Suddenly my friends all started to giggle. I turned around to see my father slowly crawling on top of my mother to make out with her."
FlyinPenguin learned the hard way that you should always brush your teeth.
"When I was in elementary school, I hated brushing my teeth. I always refused to do it. My parents, specifically my mom, would always get so mad at me about this. One morning, I came downstairs to catch the bus and my mom asked me if I brushed my teeth and I lied and said yes. She said if she found out I was lying, she would make me regret it. I figured she couldn't find out, so I caught the bus and went to school. So, I'm in class with ~20 kids and my mom opens the door with a toothbrush and toothpaste in her hand. She walks me to the bathroom (which was attached to the classroom in the back) and she left the door open while the entire class watched me brush my teeth. I learned my lesson."
"I was watching tv with some friends, and my dad came out of his room, stood in front of the tv with his back to us, pulled his shorts down to expose his butt and grabbed his butt cheeks to make them 'talk' and say 'I have bad breath.'"
Maybe it's just us, but it seems like DefinitelyNotADemon probably won't be heading back to Bass Pro Shops anytime soon.
"My parents thought that they understood the 'new lingo' a few years back. I was with my family at an Outdoor World shop (huge bass pro shop) and, as per usual, I got lost.
Now them wanting to be 'hip' parents decided to pull a 'epic prank' on me and asked if they could call me up on the intercom. Some how they gained access to the microphone and said as loudly as they could...
Would DefinitelyNotADemon please come to the front so that they can get pwned by his (no joke) epic and radical parents.
They said that in a way that made me cringe so hard that I actually became nauseous.
Like a sudden Texas rain, what seemed like the whole store split their sides with laughter and the air was flooded with hoots and hollers of all sorts. Lucky for me, I was on the other side of the store and had to make my walk of shame to the front to meet my, now dead to me, parents crying because they were laughing so hard. I sprinted out of there to the car as fast as I could and refused to talk until we got home."
"My dad is a bit of a control freak, especially so about his lawn and garden. My father didn't make me mow the lawn. I was not ALLOWED to. To be totally honest, by and large he didn't like the idea of teaching me how to do any "man" stuff, he'd prefer to just do it and be done with it. I am a super advanced flashlight holder and beer fetcher, though.
One summer he had reconstructive shoulder surgery. Dad, come on, you can't be pushing the mower around with your arm in a sling. It isn't rocket science. I am happy to do it for you.
He hemmed and hawed for awhile but finally conceded I would probably have to do it. He gave me the the super complicated instructions of "pull cord, push around in straight line," before doing the most embarrassing thing he's ever done to me.
He walked with me, his good hand on the mower, for the entire duration of mowing his front and back lawn.
I was like 26 at the time. TWENTY SIX.
I was married and living on my own at the time. Also I am a dude."
"When I was in 5th grade, I got hit by a car..I was relatively fine..but my friend called my parents and my dad was in such a rush that he showed up to the scene in just his underwear. Very embarrassing but I appreciate his urgency."
"I believe I was in third grade when this happened. I had two of best friends to my house for a sleepover and we were doing something in the living room when it was time for dinner. My dad thought it would be funny to take me to the dining room by picking me up by my feet and carrying me upside down. The only problem was that I was wearing sweatpants and when he lifted me he was grabbing more pant than ankle. I was in the air for a few seconds before I fell out of my pants onto the floor bottomless and dazed. Out of the sweats and boxers and all. I immediately ran away, porky pig style to cry in private. My dad came and tried to apologize but couldn't stop laughing. At the time it was the most embarrassed I'd ever been. In retrospect... Hilarious."
