    Fired a guy at a little league baseball game yesterday

    I've been umpiring little league games for years. Yesterday we were at a game and I was the home plate umpire. This kid of 12 years takes a ball that he thinks is outside of my strike zone and I ring him up on a 3rd strike call with my patented strike em out call. STTEEEEEERIIIIIIIIIKE THREE! Gut punch motion and all. This little disespectful twerp throws his bat down and glares at me and starts to get all pissy. He kicks a bit of dirt and starts yelling that the ball was 6 inches off the plate. I laugh and tell this twerp that I had corrective Lasik eye surgery less than a year ago and that my vision is 2020. Yet he still insists that the ball was well off the plate and proceeds to yell more. I can't have some kid of 12 years belittle me in front of the public so I scream back at this kid that he's out of here and gave him my patented heeve ho call that I rarely get to use. But its a good one to. Then this poorly raised child really gets angry and throws his bat against the fence like an angry caveman. Here comes his coach but Ive had about enough at this point in time and i give this pot bellied old man the heeve ho as well. Well here comes this kid back for more even though he never left. He's slamming his helmet down pretending like his old man coach is holding him back when here comes this this kids father figure in life. I recognize this buffoon immediately from the cubicle farm on the second floor of my company. He struts onto the diamond like its a wrestling ring and this monday night raw. He begins yelling at his kid to get out of here and then starts yelling at me what a lousy umpire I am and how I can't treat kids like that. Hes pointing his finger like he means it. Thats when I rip off my mask and let him know who I am and what a lousy employee he is and tell him that he's fired and not to come to work tomorrow. I told him he'd better hunt jobs today instead of eggs. Funny how immediately this guy was apologetic. I told him to get his brat out of here. Anyhoo, that ball may have been off the plate a bit but you can't argue balls and strikes in baseball. I don't care what age group it is.

    Good.

    A real parent would teach the kid to pick his bat up and head back to the dugout. Any good hitter knows that when you have 2 strikes you simply must protect the plate. You cant let anything close go by you.

    That sure did escalate quickly, lol. But I for one don't agree with the guy being fired over a baseball disagreement. If he was a lousy employee and you were just looking for a reason fine, but to just fire him because of a baseball disagreement was bush league bro, it's all about separating business and pleasure ... I do like to see people yell on the mound though lol

    Baseball is boring without that!
