Dodging The Point

| Massachusetts, USA | Family & Kids

(I’m refereeing a dodgeball game at a widely known indoor trampoline park. I am currently watching over a little kids game. The mother of a crying child approaches me.)

Mother: “Excuse me, but why is my son out?! Is he not allowed to play or something?”

Me: “Ma’am, your son was hit with the ball.”

Mother: “What do you mean?! That other kid clearly targeted my son!”

Me: “I’m sure he did…this is dodgeball.”

Mother: “I don’t get it.”

Me: “You have to dodge balls. If you are hit with a ball in dodgeball, you are out.”

Mother: “This is just stupid!” *leaves with her crying child*
