Mom Fired After Skipping Work To Go See Son Play In Little League World Series
In possibly the most un-American story we’ve come across today, the mother of a Little Leaguer was fired from her job as an office manager for a CPA when she chose to take off from work and cheer on her son’s team in the West Regional.
Billie Ann Tomei is the mother of Cole and wife of Trevor Tomei, who’s an assistant coach for the Petaluma National Little Leaguers. She had sick days, but her boss was out of the office and needed her to cover.
Mrs. Tomei essentially told her boss to go screw himself.
“(My boss) wouldn’t let me take time off,” Tomei told the Press Democrat. “He told me, ‘If you go, write yourself your last check.’ So I wrote myself my last check.”
Do not mess with a dedicated Little League mom. They will cut you, or, at the very least, leave your office without a manager to go cheer on their kid in a national tournament.
Petaluma National lost to Tennessee in the U.S. championship game, but at least Cole Tomei knows that his mom is awesome. (Fiscally responsible? Maybe not. She did kind of quit her job to see a little kids’ baseball tournament. But, yes, she’s definitely attained “awesome mom” status, which is more important than having a job anyway.)
