Do Tell: What Was the Most Embarrassing Thing Your Parents Did?

It's a parent's job to love you and support you, but they are also known to embarrass you from time to time, especially when you're growing up. I can remember quite a few times when I have wanted to hide under a rock after my dad told an embarrassing story to my friends or when my mom came to my birthday wearing the ugliest outfit known to man! I know I am not alone here, so ladies, do tell, what's the most embarrassing thing your parents did to you as a child?

My dad and his fiance ALWAYS talk about their sex life. My dad thinks nothing of telling my boyfriend about his strip club visits, or how he could "break that girl in half", etc. On one especially memorable occasion, we were all in the car, and my dad starts talking about how his fiance leaves the door open when she pees, and how he "doesn't need to see what comes out of there; I eat at that restaurant sometimes!" Another time, his fiance was recounting her drunken birthday escapades, and mentioned how she puked because my dad "shook her all up hehe" while giving her her "birthday present wink wink." Those stories aren't even funny, just disturbing, aren't they? But as far as most embarrassing parental moments, they're certainly winners.

my embarassing parents story was that they were always arguing so it's not really funny but my best friend's dad (my second dad since mine wasn't much like one) would wear cut off daisy dukes - well not really daisy dukes but very short for a man - and sokcks with tevas. it was HILARIOUS and mira hated it.

My personal fave was in a room full of my friends when I was 16 she tried to educate me (in English which is probably why it tured out so badly) on housekeeping. 'Your bedroom is like your C**t, just because your not always using it.. doesnt mean you cant keep it clean.' I never recovered.

let's see...when i was younger i would sneak out and my mother never failed to end up at my friends door at midnight wondering where i was. i got caught every time sneaking out. she would call every person i knew and freak out at them about where i was. even the popular guys at school who's numbers i had but never even talked to! it was awful. my aunt katie always embarasses me by introducing me to everyoen she knows in public saying, 'look at my beautiful neice' she pinches my cheeks and my butt and smears the makeup on my cheeks. ahh!!! i embarass my little brother by messing his hair and giving him tons of kisses.

in 6th grade the cool kids at school use to hang at the 7-11 by our house and bum money off adults. my dad was up there one day and the mean/cool/hot girl asked him for some money. my dad told her that he didn't give money to little girls so they could by smokes. one of her friends said something like "oh that's (lickety's) dad. forget it". which made my dad furious. he said something like "yes i am her dad and i love her enough to make sure that she isn't ever going to be acting like cheap trash at the 7-11 so all of you be sure and stay away from her because i'm going to be remembering you". he came home and told me that and i wanted to DIE! but it marked the end of them bothering me, lol. they cut me a wide swath after that. thanks dad :)

Moose, Bean, Twit? Those are the cutest nicknames! My mom just called me "Jessy Bessy" and when my room was dirty it was "Messy Jessy." She is the ONLY person that ever got away with adding the "y" to my name. She did lots of embarrassing things when I was a kid that it's hard to think of just one. :)

I was a swimmer in high school and one summer when my family was river rafting we saw a moose swimming across the river. They are really great swimmers and my Dad made a joke that the moose liked to swim just like me. "Moose" became my (unapproved) nickname that my Dad still calls me to this day. He has the loudest voice ever and he would cheer for me at swim meets, "GO MOOSE!" I was a teenage girl! It was mortifying! Even worse, when I made it into the state competition he had shirts made that read, "THE MOOSE'S DAD" and "THE MOOSE'S MOM". Now it's kind of endearing but back then I was horrified!

The best part of the shotgun business is that I'm pretty sure that he never used it for anything else and hadn't fired it in over a decade.

Whenever guys would come pick me up (in high school), my dad would discover an urgent need to clean his shotgun.

my parents are constant embarrasments, but i love them! my dad spends 99% of his free time gardening in the yard. He wears a HUGE ladies sun hat, and tucks his shirts into his BVD's whitch are about 4 inches higher then his pants. One of the first times i brought my boyfriend to their house my dad was passed out SITTING upright on the sofa still wearing his gardening gloves and hat and snoring with his mouth wide open. When he woke up he went right back outside and finished what he was doing. wierdo! My mom just thinks everyone wants to hear about her bathroom stories. "I just had the worst diarrea, it was so messy" "im very gassy, must be the broccoli" "i cant meet you for lunch im having some kind of rash on my vagina area, i think its the heat" UGH!!!!!

Embarassing for HIM->When I was 12 I caught my dad going from the bathroom to the bedroom completely naked. He didn't know I was up already. Talk about a damaging experience *shudder*.

My dad is a piece of work: He would fart and blame it on my friends. When i came home with my first training bra and showed my best friend who was staying the night he says "there isnt anything to train!" I snuck out to meet a boy down at the end of our road, and he pulled up along side of us with a shotgun and told me to get in, and the guy to get lost. The guy told everyone at school and i was never asked out. My dad also proceeded to threaten any male within a 10 mile radius that i was off limits. and thank god because 80% of the girls i went to high school with were pregnant by junior year. He used to get drunk and sing Zeppelin in our backyard
