Embarrassing Moments with Parents

Ever had one of these embarrassing moments with your parents?

After my dad passed away in 2007, Mom made it a goal to take every one of us kids (7!) on a trip. In 2011, she took me to Canada and on an Alaskan cruise. We laughed nearly the entire time.

One day, we were approaching the gondola ticket booth in Banff and I was making conversation with the 21-year-old male cashier. He said that he was moving to San Francisco after college.

On a business trip to NY in the 100 degree humidity, my female college friend and I happened upon a Turkish restaurant. We sat down in pure exhaustion with our three bags from TJ Maxx. Yunus, our adorable waiter, pulled out a chair just for our bags and I knew we had landed at the right place. A man, providing a chair for our shopping bags? Now, that is a gentleman. I love this place already. Who cares what the food is like?
