The kids were playing in the dirt while I was pulling weeds in the garden. Alex asked me to put the corn head attachment back on his combine for the 4th time in 5 minutes. I told him to bring it to me and I would do it as soon as I was done pulling the little patch of weeds in front of me.
Apparently that wasnt good enough, so he fired me. For 4 whole days.
me: "If I'm fired, does that mean you're making dinner tonight?"
Alex: "No since I fired you I get to pick who makes dinner and I pick Dad."
me: "So who's going to give you a bath?"
Alex: "Dad will and he'll put me to bed tonight too."
me: "do I get to do anything?"
Alex: "no, and in 4 days I'll un-fire you and then you can help me again."
me: "sweet, lets go tell Dad."
