Children can be adorable, as we all know, but they also have the uncanny gift of embarrassing their parents in public by blurting out the most inappropriate things at times.
Sometimes they repeat some of the worst things uttered by their parents without meaning any harm. And while it might be mortifying at the moment, looking back it can be hilarious.
Now, several parents have come forward and revealed the most embarrassing things their kids have said in public, according to Healthway:
1. Here come the police: One Reddit user, thatdan23, recalled one particularly embarrassing moment with his son in McDonalds. "My son saw two police officers. His comment: 'Daddy, why are the police here? They don’t eat hamburgers, they eat donuts.'" One officer was not amused!
2. What a gas: Reddit user Flippenzee shared a particularly humiliating experience with his daughter. "[I was] carrying my daughter back from the bathroom through a crowded hipster brunch spot while she shouted 'He farted!' at every single table... In case there was any confusion, she was also pointing at my face."
3. Packing serious punch: Sometimes children just seem to blurt things out of nowhere, as was the case for Reddit user openletter8. "My oldest daughter and I used to run away from my wife when we went shopping. One time, we got particularly far away, and I asked her what do you wanna do now that Mom can’t stop us? She exclaimed loudly, near others, 'We can punch a stranger!'" Yes, that gets you some pretty stern looks from strangers!
4. Serious trouble: Children can also raise alarm bells without intending to do so. This is what Reddit user adreamaway1 has come to learn. "My daughter is an only child and has an imaginary sister and brother. And she will tell her preschool teachers or strangers things like, 'We left my sister at home alone,' or, 'My brother died.'"
5. Belly laughs: Children are wide eyed and innocent. They also don't have any filters. Reddit user Shokker88 had first-hand experience with this recently. "I was in Subway with my 3-year-old daughter. A very large man came in behind us, and he had a stomach that hung down past his shirt... My daughter saw this and said, 'I see someone’s belly,' and went forward to tickle it before I stopped her. It was a game we played at home where I would tickle her belly."
6. Raising alarm bells: It is not just parents who find themselves squirming awkwardly at the hands of kids, as was the case for Reddit user I_am_number_one. "When babysitting my young cousin, she ran through the store yelling, 'You’re not my daddy!' as I chased her telling her to stop running. Target security didn’t like that too much."
7. Starving for attention: Inappropriate was the name of the game for Reddit user twillsteele who had a particularly cringe worthy experience. "My son came home from kindergarten with his backpack full of canned food. When pressed about the issue, he confidently stated that he had told the teacher he was hungry, and we didn’t have any food at home!"
