Embarrassing Moment:
When working for my last employer a middle aged man came in with a very attractive much younger lady for work done on her vehicle.  When the work was completed I asked who was paying for the work and the young women pointed to the man.  I commented along the lines of “that’s what dads are for” to which the man replied “I’m not her dad, she is my girlfriend”.  My only response was to shake the man’s hand and say “congratulations”.

Proudest Moment(s):
When my daughter Sarah graduated from university and when my son Daniel got his wings as a pilot
