My dad embarrasses me, thankfully I don't have to put up with it, but I know mum does, my dad is very overweight and doesn't look after himself properly and why should it be mum's job? He's old enough to know better and he looks a state, he smokes a pipe too and it's always in his mouth like a dummy! I know how mum feels, I just have to see it when I visit them once a month or so.

My father had a car that was hand painted. Brush strokes. He also didn't tape the windows properly so there was paint on the windows. His philosophy was it didn't matter because it got him from A to B. When he drove us to school, we would tell him to drop us off a block away so that people didn't see... He will also go to the big shopping mall wearing a pair of his old grey dress suit (tuxedo) pants that got too ratty and are now sporting oil from having been worn while working on the car. Along with that is a skin tight t shirt about some fitness show, stretched appropriately over a pot belly. On a cold day he will add the horrible tweed coat that has the fur around the neck. He will cap it off with a Gilligan's Island type towelling hat (in bright red of course). And he will wear that hat into the mall totally oblivious to the odd looks that everyone must give him for the strange clothing ensemble.
