The whole family turned, wide-eyed, open-mouthed in unison at her. She really had no idea how bad that sounded. - Britgirl
I try to avoid voting for the top item but this one widened my eyes and dropped my mouth. Britgirl your parents sound just a wee bit ditzy. - happyhappyjoyjoy
If you insist...
I got jaw crapped. - SuperBacca
...so everyone walks into the stench! There's no escape. - Britgirl

Yeah, really! People these days... Not sounding blind. - MoldySock
Oh God. I can picture being in this situation. Jeez. How embarrassing. And I hardly go into sports shops at all and just hate being dragged into one. Especially if this happens. - PositronWildhawk
I pretended not to know him...until he shouted my name to "come and have a look at my jogging! " - Britgirl
If you're Asian this is very true when you visit relatives or when they come to visit.
This is so annoying and very embarrassing. The act so emotional like they haven't see me in decades.
This wouldn't have happened if YOU DIDN'T EMBARRASS ME IN THE FIRST PLACE!
And that's when she finds out you date a hot girl when an ugly fat one she likes asks you out
That is so annoying. Like, yes, this is how you raised me.
I hate when that happens. god!
I don’t give a crap about how you raised me!
We're Asian and my dad constantly sings karaoke during banquets in Chinatown. His singing is HORRIBLE!
Drives me nuts sometimes because they choose the worst places or they've already been Drinking - Curti2594
My relatives are Asian and they CONSTANTLY do this to me, my sister, and my cousins. our ages range from 7-26 years old. Very awkward.
The thing is, he really thought it was as bad. My brother just sloped off, defeated... - Britgirl
(at family party)
Random relative:*tells toddler cousins that what I am currently doing is "cute"*
Is using this word embarrassing? Really? I've had it said to me and I use it quite often too. Oh...I think it's...cute! - Britgirl
Well if you're 20+ years old that would be embarrassing.
If you're ugly. - SuperBacca
I find it funny when parents continually do this! - Curti2594
My parents right here...
My parents say “oh s***” all the time, but I’m not allowed to say it
We're Asian. My mom did it in public once at an Asian restaurant in LA. The other people at the restaurant could've heard what my mom said because she spoke it in Cantonese and a lot of people that were at the restaurant were speaking cantonese as well.
I covered my face and groaned in embarrassment. I WILL NEVER LIVE THAT DOWN.
Snooping leads to touching, touching leads to moving stuff around, and moving stuff around leads to stealing. If I had snuck into their personal spaces, rearranged all of Dads tools, threw away all the books Mom doesn't read anymore, and took half of their possessions to give to Salvation Army without permission, they'd lose their crap too.
Story of my life right here.
Asian parents commonly shave their babies’ heads, regardless of the baby’s gender. I am Asian. There are pics of me as a baby WHILE I WAS BALD, and every time my younger cousins look at the pictures, they ask me if I was a boy.
Thanks, mom, for turning me into the tomboy that I am today.
My dad pretends that he doesn’t know stuff so that I can do things for him
I am 26 YEARS OLD and I am STILL:
-not allowed to buy things with my own money
-not allowed to leave the house unsupervised
-required to ask permission before going on certain thrill rides at amusement parks
-have a set bedtime/curfew
Very common with Asian parents.
Once they saw a pic of me as a kid with a boy (I am female) and the first thing they asked is “is that your boyfriend”?
WHAT. THE. HECK!
by the way, the other kid in the pic was my little cousin.
