In, Thanks

What's your most embarrassing Dad story?

The big family Bar-B-Q and we ran out of propane....

We have video of me as a baby where mom is blaming dad for the messy apartment.

Got to love baby barf on new suits!!!

Pick us!!

I'm in!

Hey Dad's always need stuff! Like this !

Dad opening the door to my date in his bathrobe, messy hair, and bad attitude!

My Dad is super talkative and he has been divorced for years.. He is all guy and whenever we go anywhere he hits on every girl he sees. They call it charisma...I call it awesome life lesson moments. BTW He is really good at it...

Pretty much anytime we go out to eat in public together! (Sorry Dad)

When my 1.5 years old made a big show in a grocery store for candy

I love my dad. He is absolutely amazing. I've been his little princess all my life. It'd be nice to give him something this Father's Day since I'm always broke. Plus, I owe him a couple thousand dollars. lol

Most embarrassing? When, at his 40th birthday party, my dad told my girlfriend that he was sure that she and I were going to make him a grandfather before he turned 40!

Good news is he's now 63, I've been married to that girlfriend for 18 years and we have two boys.

All's well that ends well, right?

Love my dad. Nothing real embarrassing. Just an awesome, loving dad.

Love my dad, but at times he can be very embarressing. When Six Flags came out with the idea of Putting $1 off per coca cola cans, he decided to horde tons of cans that we all drank. He eventually used them all to bring my whole family, 4 siblings, and my parents = total of 7 including me and pay using black garbage bags full of cans. Thank god I was only 10 yrs old, but we save over 300 in ticket fees using cans. Now that I think back, it was such a hilarious moment with my dad hahaha.

I took my dad out to dinner, and he flirted with the extremely young waitress by telling her lame jokes. She took it well, but I had to sit through it with a fake smile (or was it a grimace?). Not sure what bothered me most, the bad jokes or the flirting, but I think it was the jokes....

Dad hired Best Buy installation services to hook up his entertainment center. When I visited Dad, I noticed the mess, using all low-definition sound & video options. Needless to say, I took pictures of the work, marched into his local Best Buy, showed the manager the pictures, and demanded compensation. Of course I re-cabled the system using all component-video & optical-audio cables. This was many years ago, so HDMI wasn't an option for his TV. I don't know what was more embarrassing, hiring Best Buy contractors or seeing the over-priced monster-cables he purchased (which we promptly returned).

My Dad has always been there for me. I love him and respect him for his dedication to our family!

squeeze my fat cheeks

Remember those pants in the late 80s/early 90s that had the velcro waist and wild neon designs? They were called Jammerz or something like that? My dad had a few pairs.

Can't recall anything really embarrassing that he's ever done... He's always been there when I needed him.

Seeing him wear his wig...

I used to be embarrassed when dad bought mega-packs of toilet paper when there's a sale.

Fell asleep on a crowded train "standing"

It involved drinking too much.

Me and Dad only had every other weekend together due to parents divorcing. But one of mine & Dad's favorite things to do was go out to eat. I loved Chinese but my Dad wasn't so sure about that funky looking strange sounding cuisine. I finally talked him into it one weekend and he agreed to try out my favorite food. We went and had the sweet and sour chicken, egg foo young and few other items. We finished our meal and sitting there letting it digest and chatting. We leave and make it maybe a mile and my dad got the runs, he said he couldn't control it. He had to pull over and lined the passenger side seat with newspaper we had in the LTD and had me drive rest of the way home. I was only 14 then. He NEVER ate another bite of Chinese food after that.

Went out to dinner with my husband and parents. My Dad generously offered to pay mostly to be nice, but also because he likes to act like a big shot. The server took his card and came back and loudly announced, "Sir. Your card has been declined, do you have cash? If not, one of our washers is out sick maybe you can do some dishes." Dad and my mother looked mortified until my husband cracked up. We had paid beforehand and tipped the waiter too for his part. (My parents now think this is funny and no longer mind the "kids" picking up the tab.)

Any foray into public. Thanks Dad!
