A person whom your parents know, from that job they had back in the day, whom they've never quite been able to shake off. This person will continually reappear at social gatherings involving other family friends, who all seem to just orbit around the periphery of your parents' lives for years and years, like a fly buzzing around your head that simply won't die.

Ngoc is my enforcer. When someone misbehaves I give her the nod and she puts the misbehaving student in check with a rolled up copy of Family and Friends. As you can see, I have great classroom management skills.
