There's nothing worse than being embarrassed by your parents in front of a bunch of people. Maybe it's because they know all of your worst attributes and hold the power to humiliate you like no one else.

And what makes it worse is that Mom and Dad don't even know they're doing it half the time, because that means disaster can strike at any moment. If they were cognizant of the fact that they were embarrassing you, then at least they could do something to avoid it.

But when they're totally ignorant, then there's no telling when you're going to be taken for a trip to humiliation-ville.


Something that Shelby Donovan learned when her mom gifted her an innocent pink YETI cup holder.

The worst part? Shelby opened the gift in front of her entire family and when she did, she was holding it the wrong way. Imagine holding this ribbed, pink monstrosity in front of Grandma and Grandpa. How do you even react to that? Do you pretend to be excited for them, completely ignoring the fact your granddaughter is holding a pink plastic dildo?


It turns out it's just a pretty innovative cup holder design.

Shelby's tweet about the horrifying incident pretty much says it all.


Of course people had to point out that it was a knock-off YETI cupholder.

Because not all cheaply manufactured plastic products are created equal, apparently.


Some people were convinced that it could still be used as a dildo.

Well like the old saying goes: "anything is a dildo if you're brave enough."
