What was your most embarrassing moment in front of your parents?

When I was 16 I had a strict, conservative Dad who imposed regular curfews.

Mostly I acquiesced but sometimes I’d try out some sass. In particular when I was with friends I wanted desperately to impress.

By now you can already tell this does not end well.

Dad: I want you home before midnight.
Me: But –
Him: Home at 11:30.
Me: Hey! I just –
Him: Be home at 10:30.

Sass never was very effective
