Most embarrassing thing your FI/ H has done?

edited September 2014 in Chit Chat
I was just thinking about this because one of H's friends who got married, recently asked why H was late to his wedding (because he had heard rumors.) Unfortunately, the rumors were true.   H and I were in a rush before the wedding. So much of a rush that i am not sure he even got dressed with his eyes open.  We arrive at the banquet facility where the ceremony and the reception took place.  My H gets out of the car and I see it in broad daylight.  He has a long satin stripe going down the side of his pants.  NO WAY.  In two seconds I figured out the rest of the story that was two years old. 
  H's brother got married two years ago. H was the best man.  He said over and over he had no idea where his tuxedo pants went,. He thought he tore them, but he never could find them, and nnever returned them to Tuxedo Junction.  Well I guess he found them! He wore rental pants to someone else's wedding. WOW. I know you usually dress up, but a casual button down shirt and tuxedo pants... nope. He tried to tell me it was fine, and no one would notice.  Three of his friends said something to him, about his snazzy pants, on the way to the ceremony. (H put on a little bit of weight in the past two years... so did I, but I bought a new wardrobe). The pants were about 3 inches too short, and as I began to further notice, he had a split in the crotch and another in the ass.  What was holding these pants, together? Lol (magic).  H was STILL insisting he could make it through the night.  I said, are you staying at the table all night?  Fi said no, he was going to dance. "I'm sorry, honey, but you are getting pants."
  We left after the ceremony and got him new pants, and were late to the reception. Months later, they, still, call him TPT. Tuxedo Pants Tim. I laugh every time I think of this and how he thought the pants were fine and would have "made it through the night." (like it was someone on life support). I just hope these tuxedo pants never graced a business meeting in two years. Btw, not laughing at his weight gain, just the fact that he thought the pants would do.

Just thought it would be funny to hear some of your stories. What is  the most embarrassing thing your FI or H has done?

  • Oh gosh that's ridiculous!

    DH is embarrassing not in a funny way. He has a bad habit of dropping names and finance numbers. He comes off as bragging when he talks about how rich his boss is because he just bought a lamboughini or something, and then he'll brag about getting to sit next to Jerry Jones at cowboys stadium in the suite because his boss knows him, and he'll drop his salary numbers when we are discussing appliances with an associate. It's really embarrassing, humiliating.

    He has been told several times by different people it's rude and comes off bragging. He says he doesn't mean to, he was just telling the facts. He doesn't realize society doesn't think like him. I frequently elbow him to get him to stop talking.

    I feel like this gives a lot of insight into his desire to have a Mercedes.  Don't let him stretch you beyond your means! 

    A lot of the older wealthy people I know got there because they lived frugally when they were younger.  FI and I try to follow the same strategy.

     We have pretty high car standards too, and FI did finance his truck (got a great rate through the credit union, with monthly payments well within our means), but we paid cash for my car, and I paid cash for my car before that, and so did he. 

    We would also love a bigger house, but instead we're putting that money toward saving for an even better house than what we could get now.  I am by no means any kind of financial expert or trying to judge you in any way, but I hope you will consider some of my friendly advice :)

  • H embarrasses me all the time. I cannot think of a good example right now but he is very social and can be sooo cheesy. It takes everything in me not to downplay his comments or roll my eyes in front of other people. Must be the supportive wife.
    Everyone loves him though so I don't think he realizes how cheesy he can be.

    I don't what FI would tell you his most embarrassing moment is, but the one that's most embarrassing to me was when FI flipped out on my neighbor, a kindly eastern European orthodox Jewish man, who had parked so that his bumper was just barely touching the bumper of FI's truck. He was pretty rude, made a scene and insisted that they not move either car to see whether there was any damage, until a police officer had arrived to see it take the report. Of course there was no damage...and now I get a dirty look from the neighbor's family every time I walk past their house.

    ETA: I realize that makes FI sound like a terrible person but it's totally out of character for him. He's usually really sweet and patient, it's just something about his truck...

    ETA again: don't quote me...I may eventually DD in the event that FI finds his way onto TK.

    FI is the same way. I feel like he finds some way to embarrass me or FSS every time he opens his mouth in public. 

    His worst though is karaoke. He likes to find ways to make every song dirty. In a bar late at night? Hilarious. At an outdoor patio bar downtown at noon on a Sunday? Mortifying. There are families walking by with children and the patio was also connected to a restaurant filled with more children. My dirty looks never help so I am always releived when he crosses a line and they take away the mike.

    FI does the weird underwear dance from Everybody Loves Raymond... pulls his underpants up to his nipples, bends down with his arms stuck out the legs of his underpants, and then tries to grab my butt. It's really fucking weird.

    Rotflmao. That is HYSTERICAL!  I would die of laughter... I LOVED that episode!

    It was an episode of friends. Chandler was whacking it when Monica walked in on him. He quickly turns the tv to the discovery channel (it was shark week), and she thought he could only get turned on by sharks, because he did not want to do it with her.

  • DH gets frustrated easily over some things. Don't get me wrong, he is normally a very nice guy, but a few things will set him over the edge. For instance, a few weeks ago, we were walking into our apartment from the car. A new neighbor that we haven't met yet was walking by so DH says hi. Neighbor didn't respond, just kept walking. So, as we walk inside DH yells something like "I hate it when people are f-ing rude and don't say hi back". Yeah, maybe the guy should have responded, but that's no reason to be rude in return. The worst one, that still bugs me today, is mixed in with first time DH met my siblings and my wedding proposal. And I think those other factors are the main reason it still bothers and embarrasses me. But, a few years ago we spent Christmas with my family in Florida. It was the first time he met my brother & sister-in-law, even though we had been together for about 4 years already. DH is a great guy, but certainly blue collar, no college, and a bit rough around the edges. So, I think they were already iffy about whether he was the right guy for me, since I've put myself through college and have a professional career, and I was hoping they liked him. Anyway, during the trip we all went to Disney World. Apparently he had planned to propose in front of the castle with the fireworks that night. BUT, while watching the parade, some guy starts pushing behind me and hitting me in the head with his camera to get a better view/photo. DH turns and says "Do you mind backing off a little?"... the other guy is a dick and gets an attitude, and yells back with "What? Do you own this place? You don't own this place so you can't tell me where to stand!". Well, that set DH off and it turned into a full on screaming match... right in the middle of Disney, watching the parade, surrounded by kids. I thought they were going to start throwing punches, and probably would have if the dick didn't have a kid on his shoulders (yes, he started crap with a kid on his shoulders). DH claims he will never throw a first punch, but won't hesitate to talk shit or hit back. Security came and separated them, threatening to kick everyone out. Needless to say, that kind of ruined his chance to propose right then. And created a very bad first impression for my family. As we were leaving, he did propose while sitting in the parking lot, waiting for shuttle bus to our hotel. Or course I said yes, but it still felt tainted by the evenings near violence. And I had several family members take me aside over the rest of the trip asking if I really want to marry this guy and asking if he ever gets violent toward me like that, which further tainted the memory. My family should be happy for an event like that, not asking if I need a place to escape from him and telling me I have other options. DH certainly didn't start the altercation, but I don't think he needed to egg it on either, and given the surroundings, I think he really should have just shut up and backed down. But, he is not, and will never be, the type to just back down. But, I was mortified by that experience.

  • Not really embarrassing. But this is the kind of daily shenanigans I deal with when FI is in a silly mood. I don't mind, makes me laugh - but I am sure some people might be mortified.

    Ughhh mine too!!! I am SO non-confrontational and the slightest tension between people makes me extremely uncomfortable. Not FI. He's always ready to stand up for what he believes in and I'm like babe, that's not always necessary. Not every situation needs your opinion.

    And he's REALLY loud. He just talks loud by nature, so everyone hears his opinions and I'm just cringing trying to stay hidden lol

    Yep, mine is loud like that too... all the time. And whenever he gets hyped up or excited, even a little bit, he gets really loud and people think he's angry and yelling when he's really not. And apparently he never realized that he did it. I've started pointing it out to him and he's try to get better about using "that voice". Especially after he did it at work when talking to his boss and some of his co-workers worried that he was going to punch the boss when he wasn't even really angry. He just gives off the impression of being an angry & potentially violent person, when he is actually very in control of himself.

  • When FI & I were first dating, he came to visit me one weekend. I had to run to the grocery store and we were waiting in the self-checkout line. All 4 were full and there was one person in front of us in line. When someone finished and the person in front of us didn't jump immediately to the open checkout space, FI screams "NEEEXXXTTT!" I was SO embarrassed. Thankfully, he has since worked on his patience and we laugh about it now!

  • I'm probably MUCH more embarrassing than DH is.  Not even probably, for sure I am.  

    However, the one thing that he does that makes me want to crawl into a deep dark  corner and never come out is when he screws up in some way (poor mark on a test, loses something, forgets something moderately important), he loses his mind.  Swearing at himself loudly, sometimes punching walls etc, followed by pouting.  At home, I don't care and just let him have his spaz, but when it happens in public, or around my family he just looks SO childish, and I don't want them having a bad impression of him.
  • @winchestered I have no idea what it was about your post, but I seriously laughed so hard! I think it was picturing someone coming home with elk and buffalo and glucose tablets, like the most random shit ever, and I fully thought "what the actual fuck" and then you said it.
