If you think THAT’S scary, just wait until the kid hears how big his share of the government debt will be when he’s older.
A mom complained that her precious little boy was frightened. By the decorations at the ‘Santa’ Grotto.
(Our guess is she can’t handle ‘Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer, either.)
What scared him?
It’s a plastic ‘reindeer’ head.
Mounted, of course.
The fact that it wasn’t connected to a body was apparently a problem.
A shopping centre has apologised and pulled a reindeer decoration from its Christmas grotto after a “mortified” child asked whether it had been killed.
Mother Adele Keen forced the removal of the decoration – a plastic reindeer head mounted on a wall – from the festive attraction at The Mall shopping centre in Maidstone, Kent, after complaining on social media.
KentOnline reports that her son had been left “traumatised” and even asked whether Santa “had killed his reindeer”.
Why was there a plastic deer’s head in the first place?
Marketing manager Suzie Brindle told Sky News: “Each year the grotto features a different theme and this year is medieval castle and the plastic deer’s head formed part of this.
“Having heard that the display was causing concern, we took steps to remove the decoration after opening hours which complies with health and safety regulations. We apologise for any upset caused.”
So it wasn’t a REINDEER… it was just a deer.
The kid still freaked out.
The fact that it was PLASTIC didn’t strike anyone as a point that could have been raised with the kid?
As in ‘it’s just pretend’?
No. It’s far easier to freak out and make someone else comply to what offends you, isn’t it?
This is why — as the saying goes ‘we can’t have nice things’.
