Excerpt from Wikipedia: Sheldon is also a difficult person to work with.  In "The Electric Can Opener Fluctuation",  Sheldon finds out that the others have tampered  with his experiment, in order to make him more  pleasant to work with. He also found out that  they were considering killing him and had even  come up with a plan to do so. When Leonard comes  up with an idea for an iPhone application to  solve physics problems, Sheldon immediately  tries to seize control of it. When Leonard makes  it clear that he is in charge, Sheldon continues  to annoy the others, resulting in him getting  fired by Leonard. When he asks why, Leonard  tells him "[he is] impossible to work with".
