Not enough reason to deny a kids' visit to Santa imo.

Suck it up, mom.

The kid cried because he knows it's true.

A little misleading. That is not the only reason he was fired. He deserved it. Don't be a Santa if you're going to insult the kids. I hope the next kid peed on his lap.

I'm surprised people are actually laughing at this

The kid is three for God's sake!!!

I'm all for ribbing but I think "age appropriate" applies.

If you told me the Rangers suck now I'd probably agree with you. If you told me that when I was 3 it would've shattered my little world. You don't do that to a little kid, I don't care who his team is.

I agree. The fact he's 3 kills this "Joke". Santa is an A-Hole.

I guess he's "Santa" because he can't get a real job.

At 3, I don't think you'd be offended. He probably cried because he didn't see Santa long. But it is still very unprofessional and if a Santa told my son stuff like that, regardless of how much he understood, I'd be pissed too.

Real job? Do you know how much these guys make? The one up the road from me makes 50 an hour at parties and 30 when he's at the mall (though he's the best one around here). At the bigger malls (typically found on kijiji) they make roughly 20 an hour.

Sure it's seasonal but they make good money.

That's not the point. Why is he saying these things to a 3 year-old? He's an adult and being paid to make kids happy.

He's three so that means he's already forgotten about this.

Don't think anyone is arguing that Santa was in the right here.

Not necessarily true. I remember things to this day from when I was 3.

Hate to be that guy, but there's a good chance that those events didn't happen.
