When I was a permanently annoyed teenager, my mother would say it's her right to embarrass me. Why? Because she popped me and and subsequently raised me. I did not agree with this logic and loathed the way she insisted speaking Spanish to anyone she assumed spoke the language. And as I sat fuming, at least I had the comfort of knowing that I was not alone: it's a proven fact that ALL parents are embarrassing.
Twitter user @mrnickharvey has more than backed this up with an incredibly entertaining Twitter thread asking people to share their most embarrassing parental moments. The tales are pure gold, and some of the stories actually make us want to hang out with Mom and Pops!
