Most Embarrassing And Dumbest Things That Parents Do And Say

Britgirl
I love my parents dearly but sometimes they nearly make me die with embarrassment with their antics. There must be some pretty iffy things your parents do. Unburden yourself by adding it to this list.

The Top Ten

1 Mum on car washes: "I know a place where they do good hand-jobs. Cheap too!

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

2 Dad farts on upward motion on esculator

...so everyone walks into the stench! There's no escape. - Britgirl

3 Mum, on a woman talking about blindness in a radio interview: "She doesn't SOUND blind!"

And what about "she doesn't look deaf"? - gabimartgrena

What?! I despair. I do, straight! Haha! - Britgirl

Yeah, really! People these days... Not sounding blind. - MoldySock

4 Dad starts frantic jogging on the spot after trying on jogging bottoms in a sports shop.

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

5 Headline in paper: MARKS AND SPENCER PROFITS FALL - (Dad:) "That's cos I didn't buy my pants from there this year."
6 Dad on his bodily outbursts: "I keep farting out my bum!"
7 Mum on the loudness of motorbikes: "You'd think they'd turn the volume down on those things, wouldn't you?"
8 Mum on Sharon returning to EastEnders: "She's just like a soapland coldsore - irritating and unsightly!"
9 When they pick you up and are overly pleased to see you.

This is so annoying and very embarrassing. The act so emotional like they haven't see me in decades.

If you're Asian this is very true when you visit relatives or when they come to visit.

10 "Sorry about him. He's easily embarrassed."

This wouldn't have happened if YOU DIDN'T EMBARRASS ME IN THE FIRST PLACE!

The Contenders

11 Mum on One Direction: "Which one's Nigel, then?"
12 "This isn't how I raised you"

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!

13 Start a random argument with random people
14 Start singing in public

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

15 Dad on my brother dropping his iPhone 5 in swimming pool: "Oh I know what you mean, son. I dropped 20p down the loo once!"

The thing is, he really thought it was as bad. My brother just sloped off, defeated... - Britgirl

16 Dance in the streets in front of you
17 "You know son, in my day"

I find it funny when parents continually do this! - Curti2594

18 Curses in front of their children

My parents right here...

My parents say “oh s***” all the time, but I’m not allowed to say it

19 Tell relatives an embarrassing story about your childhood

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.

20 Speak to you in baby talk
21 Call things you do "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

22 I ban you from video games
23 Not flush the toilet after using the bathroom

Story of my life right here.

24 When they acknowledge a complete stranger
25 Tell relatives lies about you
26 Start singing out of nowhere
27 Start dancing out of nowhere
28 Yell at you in public
29 Give you a dirty look in public
30 Point at you
31 Roast you to your relatives
32 Yell at you
33 Spank you
34 Threaten you
35 Shave their baby girl’s head

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.

36 Play dumb

My dad pretends that he doesn’t know stuff so that I can do things for him
