bsteiny: Ex-husband specialized in two types: the acting-like-an-idiot-and-doesn't-know-he's-embarrassing-me type, and the making-humorous-comments-to-embarrass-me-in-public type.  I don't think he himself was ever embarrassed.  He especially enjoyed making loud comments when we were shopping, for instance in shoe stores: "This must be your 5th pair of boots!  Do you need one for every day of the week?!"  etc. etc.  The people around us would smile or chuckle, and sometimes I'd have a witty comeback, but inside I was seething.  The acting-like-an-idiot embarrassment was nothing he could help, because as nice a guy as he was (and sometimes funny), he just wasn't very bright and ended up sticking his foot in his mouth a LOT.

That's why he's the ex.  Well, that's  partlywhy.

Now with boyfriend, we generally don't embarrass each other or if we do, it's more mutual.  It might also be that I care a lot less what other people think of us than I did before.

I bet he asked you shut the fark up a lot.
