Mad Santa

December 23rd, 2011 · 27 comments

Writes Mimi in Toronto: “Me being 17 and my brother being 19, we weren’t particularly interested in doing the whole ‘leave Santa provisions’ charade on Christmas Eve. Our mother took offense to our lack of Christmas spirit, and we awoke the next morning to this note, along with some half eaten cookies and carrots.”

Dear Mimi and Ben, What the fuck?! No cookies, drink and carrots for Santa and his reindeer?! What kind of hospitality is that?! Sheesh. Love, Santa P.S. I helped myself thankyouverymuch

      But then again, she did call her daughter “Mimi”.

    That mother is awesome. I have to remember that when my kid is old enough to think he is “too cool” for Christmas and Santa!

      He once got thrown out of the Council of Nicea for punching Arius. The dude has a temper.

    That’s pretty wack of Santa to bitch abou the cookie and carrots, then leave them–not even half-eaten–on the plate. I’m sure he is well aware of the starving children all over the world. This is a tough economy, worldwide. The very least he could do is bring the leftovers to someone who has little to eat.

    Wait, is this note also written on the back of wrapping paper? Like the last note? Is this a Canadian thing? I’ll have to remember to write any future PANs on wrapping paper to keep up with my fellow countrymen/women!

      Well, what kind of paper would you expect Santa to use?

    For Santa to have passive aggressively raided the cookie jar and the fridge for some veggies and milk- he must have been desperate or had a long day of delivering presents. :-P

      My parents always had us leave an empty brandy snifter and a new bottle, because “it’s cold out there and Santa needs something to warm him up.” Then we’d go to bed, dreaming of dancing sugarplums or whatever, and “Santa” would lay out our presents, stuff our stockings, and drink all the brandy.

      As an adult, it is suddenly clear why they were less than enthusiastic about children jumping on their bed at 6am.

    Maybe Mom should give Mimi and Ben a copy of http://amzn.to/roJggK along with a reminder that one of Santa’s reindeer is named “Donner”.

    Sometimes just a little bit of ambiguity can help clear things right up.

    I never understood why he needed cookies at EVERY house. That seemed like an awful lot of cookies and he was sure to have a tummy ache after just a few houses. Guess I was just too rational.

      I guess he takes a lot of them home with him for the elves. He has a lot of toys to deliver, so his workforce must be huge.

      Awww! That’s sweet! In that case I would have packed them to go!

    That’s Santa alright; dropping F-bombs left, right and centre.

    Maybe it is time to tell Mum that Santa isn’t real…

      Demanding that a 17- and 19-year-old believe in Santa (and F-bombing them for not doing so) does seem a bit disturbing. But she gets bonus points for writing out “Love” instead of drawing hearts.

      I, personally, find it astounding that there are so many- allegedly ADULT; allegedly highly educated- people who (in spite of all of the evidence) STILL do not believe in Santa Clause.

    My parents always made me leave beer for Santa. My father said that after all that milk, he would be in the mood for something better, and I’d get better gifts as a sign of appreciation. Luckily for me, he and my father both liked Pabst Blue Ribbon.

      Santa has to breathe into a machine in order to start up his sleigh because of your enabling bastard father and his tempting alcoholic offerings. I hope he’s happy (because Santa sure is every time he stumbles out of your chimney.)

    Mimi’s mom should give lessons in how to be an awesome parent, or at least in how to handle disappointment with offspring in ways that are pleasantly memorable.

    (I hope Mimi shares this URL with her mom so she can see the comments… Parents like that deserve all the applause they can get.)

    This mom is pretty cool. Not as cool as my mom, but she’s getting there.
