I’ve occasionally wondered just how annoying it must be to work as a Santa during the Christmas period because the amount of annoying kids you have to deal with must be well and truly relentless, but it seems as though most of the people who sign up for it can hold it together because aside from Bad Santa you never really hear about any of them having meltdowns or anything like that.

Until this story taking place in the city of St Ives that is. A whole bunch of families took their children to the grotto at the Corn Exchange in Market Hill on Sunday, but were dismayed to find that Santa Claus was having a full on meltdown after a smoke machine being used in a family friendly rave in a separate part of the center set the fire alarms off. One unnamed mother described what happened:
People were in the process of vacating the building and in came angry Santa swearing using the most vile language, ripping off his hat and beard with steam literally coming from his ears… not too sure why he was so cross?
He was shouting at people to leave, which is exactly what we were doing. Very strange behaviour.
My children thankfully didn’t take too much notice. They asked why Santa was being horrible after they heard the crowd outside talking about it.
My friend’s little boy was upset as his dad was carrying him when Santa told them ‘to get the f*ck out’.
We told our children he wasn’t the real Santa. He was an imposter and will be going on the naughty list.
I guess that’s one way to get around it because kids will literally believe anything you tell them won’t they? Kinda weird that Santa would break character so badly over just a fire alarm, but maybe something else was going on? Either way I hope he got fired because he sounds like he was doing a worse job than Billy Bob Thornton in that movie. Wouldn’t have been that hard to stay in character and ferry everyone out. Just saying.
