This is the story of how Brett, with the support of his quick-thinking wife, found himself at the center of a memorable showdown. When faced with an unmercifully hot day at his son’s 7-on-7 football practice, Brett and his family decide to bring along their trusty expandable tent for some much-needed shade. Little did they know that their day would take an unexpected turn when a group of audacious intruders tried to claim their spot!
Battling the Arizona Heat
Living in scorching Arizona, Brett found himself chauffeuring his son and wife to his son’s 7-on-7 football practice.
They Came Prepared
Familiar with enduring outdoor events in the blistering heat, they anticipated another grueling day when they learned that field four was on a softball field.
But they came prepared, armed with an expandable tent to shield them from the merciless sun.
Though a bit cumbersome to carry, once set up, it offered a respite from the sweltering conditions.
Prime Real Estate
Arriving early at the field, they were fortunate to secure a prime spot with approximately sixty linear feet of open sideline on both sides of the makeshift field.
Close but Not Breaking the Rules
Following the tent seating rules, they positioned themselves close but not closer than ten feet from the sideline, being considerate of others’ views.
Satisfied with their setup, they engaged in conversation while their son went through his pregame routine.
Tent vs. Intruders
However, their tranquility was abruptly disrupted as they heard and felt the presence of people clumsily stumbling through their tent.
The Family Blocked Their View
Startled, these individuals realized their mistake, muttered expletives under their breath, and promptly established their camp directly in front of Brett’s family, leaving them with a mere glimpse of the field.
Prime Spot Snatchers
Determined not to let them settle in too comfortably, Brett spoke up, asserting that they had already claimed the spot.
Turning around, the man who barged in retorted, “Hey! You can sit wherever the hell you want! This is general admission, right? So sit wherever the hell you want!”
Brett exchanged glances with his wife and knew they were both thinking the same thing – it was time for some masterful mischief.
The Chair Vs. Tent Loophole
While the rules dictated that tented individuals should be ten feet off the sideline, no such limitation existed for those in chairs.
The only guideline was to refrain from sitting on or touching the sideline. Seizing this opportunity, Brett and his family gathered their chairs and started packing up their belongings.
The sight was pure delight as they observed the interlopers grinning triumphantly, assuming they had emerged victorious.
Little did they know Brett and his wife had something up their sleeves. They planted their chairs right in front of the intruders, leapfrogging over them.
Sharing Tent Space With Their Neighbors
In the process, they graciously offered their vacated seats to their neighboring spectators, ensuring they would enjoy some shade.
Sensing that Brett and his wife were up to something mischievous, their neighbors happily accepted the generous offer.
Savoring the Rage They Caused
Now comfortably settled in their new ringside seats, Brett and his family savored the moment, relishing the glares directed their way.
Seeking Referee Intervention
They soon noticed one of the disgruntled individuals approaching the referee, attempting to recruit him in their favor as if it were the referee’s responsibility to meddle in spectator seating disputes.
First Come, First Serve
The referee, accompanied by the complainer, approached Brett’s wife and inquired, “Which one of y’all got here first?”
Quick Thinking Triumph
Wearing a confident smile, Brett’s wife responded, “We did. They just plopped down in front of us when we were just trying to give you enough space to do your job.”
Brett couldn’t help but admire his wife’s quick thinking.
The End Zone Showdown
The referee deliberated for a moment before delivering his verdict. “Well, it’s the end zone, so plop at your own risk. But you gotta know it’s first come, first served.”
Trampled and Grumbled
Defeated, the disgruntled bunch trampled through Brett’s tent once more, this time nearly instigating a confrontation with one of his friends.
From Frustration to Spectacle
Their country manners clashing with their annoyed demeanor, they stumbled and grumbled their way back to wherever land of odd they hailed from.
In that fleeting moment, silence engulfed the surroundings – even a pin dropping would have been audible.
He Was Proud of His Wife’s Quick Thinking
Brett couldn’t help but relish the victory, grateful for his resourceful wife and the satisfaction of turning a potentially frustrating situation into a comical spectacle.

Redditors loved Brett’s story. One user said, “As an AZ resident, ill say this was a very AZ thing to happen.
Them: You can’t tell me what to do.
You: OK, I’ll do the same back to you.
Them: Goes crying to an authority figure.”
