That sucks. Crushing young people's dreams since 2011... But I'd have to admit I would be embarrassed if my mother brought me... I'd probably say something like that too...

Dude; 1) FYL For all the angry glares you musta gotten and tears shed, but YDI because you don't bring older kids to see Santa. Despite how much you think "D'aw, they'll love it." Even though we complain to you. Note: When we say we hate it and don't wanna go, we mean it.

He's a good kid. I find it ironic that we call it a religious holiday, and in turn we feed a lie to kids (and then find excuses for why it's ok to lie to them).

There's this psycho-religious guy back in my home town. Last year, he and his Super Christian groupies took a cardboard cutout of Santa Claus to the gun range, and shot him all to bits. Google Repent Amarillo, and check out their Facebook page.

86 He is real, don't worry. I'll give you the coal though. Santa doesn't give coal anymore for some reason. He came into the house an I caught him but he then was taking money from me. He said there had to be some way to buy the coal. I asked where my present was and it turned out to be a picture of me and Mickey at Disney. I thought it was nice but it looked like the one I already had in my kitchen. He went on his way but I never heard my jerk neighbors getting coal. They instead got robbed. Serves them right. I am lucky I didn't get robbed. So the moral of the story is that you should always wash behind your ears.

I'm a teen and sort of agree, but heck no! If my kid did that, they'd be in so much trouble! I don't care how bored the brat is, they don't need to ruin it for kids. Although I also don't agree with telling your kids some fat dude is watching you and gives you random presents.. But whatever.

My youngest brother is 3. I actually really enjoy still talking about Santa although my other brother ruined it for me when he was in first grade and I was in fourth grade..

Don't worry, you're not the only one xD my editing skills totally did not catch that, And I'm not saying the kid shouldn't be in trouble; I'm just saying the parent kinda got themselves into this mess. As a side note: Ahem, he?

There is a very short time period (about 5-8 years) in which a child either is afraid of Santa or knows he's not real. Yeah, we teenagers are not retarded. We know that everyone will hear it, and how else do you tell people. Technically, OP's kid saved all those parents from having to explain that.

I agree with 58, but for a different reason. We try to tell our kids not to lie and that lying is wrong, but then we shove this huge lie down their throats. I find it kind of ironic: We lie about a big fat guy that will give them coal if THEY lie or are bad. What kind of message are we sending? Hypocrisy...yay!

@13: I agree. Most children that go see Santa are very young anyways (between 2-7) and are just fully grasping the idea of Santa. I'd be livid if I was one of those parents!!! FYL OP but YDI for making the oldest child wait with you in line!

83: I think it is good for kids to have something like Santa to beleive in. The world is a harsh place and it is nice when they can have something like Santa to look forward to. I wasn't crushed when i learned he was not real , but i was older and had asked my parents myself. I didn't blame my parents for "lying" to me, as you put it. I am glad I had Santa as a little girl.

You mean = they are, so it's= they're! I'm sorry to correct you, but some dickwad did it to me! Funny thing is, this is FML, which is an abbreviation. So, I don't get it. I understood you.

Grow adults have imaginary friends they talk to, think the world is 6000 years old, believe stories about a zombie who came back for a meal after being nailed to a piece of wood, and that an ark was built to house all the animals (except for a very large group of massive animals that were somehow forgotten). Is thinking a kid, probably ten, believes in a fat man giving out presents that ridiculous?

18- its people's belief. Dont put them down just because you think it is stupid. Everyone has different beliefs for different things. Im not a bible banger or anything but im just saying not to be close minded.

50 - just because a book says something with no proof does not make it acceptable to believe. I believe in what makes the very computer I'm typing this on work, not a book of fables with sometimes questionable morals, written by many authors, all hundreds of years after this supposedly happened.

134 - first law of thermodynamics only holds in classical mechanics. In quantum mechanics particles randomly pop into and out of existence, such as virtual photons. This is a result of the uncertainty principle. The universe actually violates no known laws because it's sum is with a Planck unit of zero.

SassyLilSarah: You look rainy and shiny, but digressions aside, you can't expect any kind of credibility when you use blatant straw-man arguments (basically making shit up and misrepresenting your opposition's beliefs or claims) and even less so when you basically ADMIT to not having paid any attention whatsoever to the very claims you're dismissing out of hand, along with the evidence to back them up. Go rant on a Creationist forum or something. Humor is the point of FML, I think, but not so much this kind of laughably TRAGIC humor.

My friend is scared of mall Santas for this exact reason: pedophilia. I have to agree with her, too, because Santa (if he was real) is a total stalker, and the mall Santas run over people's feet, shove lies down little children's throats along with the parents, and are creepy in general.
