It's Walmart.  Shouldn't he have a mart cart instead?

Of course he's not real, he's the CANADIAN Santa. He fills the childrens' stockings with poutine and Triumph cassettes, and politely says "We'll see, Wayne & Mario," when little twin boys tearfully ask for him to bring a Maple Leafs Stanley Cup-winning team."

It's definitely not when it's a family member.

/Skipping Christmas this year because my psychotic younger brother just moved back in with my parents.

Walmart Santa has got to be pretty low on the "place that it would be pleasant to be Santa at" list. I saw Nick at Cabelas the other day, he even had a couple lady elves with him.

He's a mall Santa, he's just set up by the Wal-Mart. The real story is that there's a mall with a Wal-Mart in it. Like some kind of retail turducken.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: Triumph cassettes


The sad thing about cassettes is that no one's made a good cassette player in a long time. If you want Dolby, you have to buy used or NOS.
 
2017-11-27 06:03:57 PM  
Of course he's fake. Who doesn't know that the guys at the Mall are oversized elves, in costume, sent from the North Pole to help Santa while dressing up as him?  They're effectively outsourced help, working the wish list help desk for Santa. Even my six year old knows that the real Santa would never have the time to deal with all the front-end data collection that goes into Christmas.  He's more of the COO / CIO type -- not a customer-facing peon.  Jeez.

It's in Canada (insert joke here)

But seriously, it's really close to downtown Toronto and probably the only way Wally World could get that close.

You should have known he was fake when you saw him sitting outside Walmart.  The real deal costs some serious coin.
 
2017-11-27 06:10:15 PM  
He's white.  That's not good enough for you??

I'd posted here, a few days ago working in retail during the: "Hap-Hap-Happiest time of year" about a customer who was shouting he wanted to "beat up Santa Claus", who, at the time was in our department chatting with co-workers on his break. I then had the pleasure of waiting upon said miscreant. Mean guy.
  My store was not a Walmart. Worked at King of Prussia Mall in Pa.
    Not surprised by this Walmart incident. Bet it happens often at any store with a Santa. Oh, and saw a gal go nuts on the Easter Bunny-something about her photos not coming out right......that was at the Willow Grove Mall.....

According to the mall's Facebook page, the shopping center held a Silent Santa event on Sunday in which families with a child with autism were encouraged to visit Santa before mall hours "without the distractions of large crowds, amll music and holiday lights." It is unclear whether the video took place on Sunday although it first appeared on social media this weekend.

Crazy woman aside, this is a very cool thing that the mall did for autistic kids.

I remember Christmas when I was 4 1/2 years old and asking my parents if Santa was real.   I knew he wasn't from that day forward.  I can still enjoy him though.  And all the fun parts of  Xmas.   Though we've had the husband dress up as a bastard version of the Green Man/Horned God the last 4 years or so.   The kids get a kick out of grandpa covered in leaves and a 4pt rack on his head (8 point for you easterners).

"Walmart Santa" is not a job I'd put on my resume. OTOH, you could probably write a book about the horrors you've seen.

On the gripping hand, you'd have probably drunk yourself into an illiterate stupor by then.

Santa should have just made something up about the sleigh. When I was a kid, I asked Santa where his reindeer were. He said they were sick. THAT Santa was fully prepared to bullshiat a five-year-old.

You know... in her case, it might actually work. I know autistic people who are emotionally very much stuck at a younger age; a mid-20s woman still plays with her tea-sets and basically requires her mother to work from the emotional level of a 5-year-old, only using natural language, like any adult would talk to another.

I know, this is Fark.. you're supposed to make fun of "the autisms" or whatever, not have compassion for them. :p

There are a lot of openly crazy people in Toronto. Much more than other cities in which I have lived (e.g. Halifax, Montreal). Sort of ironic because we have a world class psychiatric hospital in the city.

The Duffern mall santa isn't too bad. The Walmart is attached to the mall, and the santa is in the mall part. It is a decent mall as these things go. Which means while I hate it intensely and irrivokably, I could have it even more.

Either that or heavy drugs.  I won't make fun of mental illness, because I'm not a dick, but if you are that whacked out on drugs, you need to be secured and given help.

Stories like these make me thankful my OCD is manageable.

common sense is an oxymoron: "Walmart Santa" is not a job I'd put on my resume. OTOH, you could probably write a book about the horrors you've seen.

On the gripping hand, you'd have probably drunk yourself into an illiterate stupor by then.


Usually they just grab a employee that's older and is willing to wear the suit . (greeter )
