Mall To Santa Claus: You're Fired!

When I was young, I wondered how every mall could have a Santa Claus.   Mom explained that the real Santa is very busy in December (made sense) and so these were assistants sitting in for the real Claus.

I can understand that.  But I can't understand a mall that doesn't have a screening process that would quickly eliminate grumpy Clauses.  Instead, a Maine mall had to fire Santa:

Jessica Mailhiot and her 6-year-old daughter, Chantel, went to see Santa this week. They tell WGME-TV he was rude and wouldn't let the girl sit on his lap when they said they didn't want to buy a $20 photo.Chantel says when she asked Santa for an American Girl doll, he replied she'd get an "American football."

When the mom posted her story online, others shared similar experiences.

Well, at least there was no misuse of the word, "ho."
