I'm all for being sensitive to people's feelings and not trying to intentionally hurt or even offend them if at all possible. However... I'm also sick of people getting their "knickers in a knot" over the most ridiculous things and will go out of my way to further knot their knickers if I can... What has me shaking my head this time is the firing by Macy's department store of John Toomey, a man who has beem employed by Macy's as their seasonal Santa Claus for the past 31 years. YES, I said 31 years!!! The reason he got fired was for telling a joke he had been telling grown-ups for years. One couple took issue with it, went to management and Santa got sacked... Here is the exchange that caused the hoopla... Santa: Have you been good this year? Couple: Yes Santa. Santa: That's too bad. Do you know why Santa is so jolly? Couple: No Santa Santa: That's because Santa knows where all the bad boys and girls live. Mr. Toomey is adamant about never having told this joke to children or near children and there has never been one complaint until now... The couple didn't voice their displeasure when they got off Santa's lap and apparently got appalled once they went to the office. I wonder what Macy's gave them to make them happy...Hmmmmmmmmm Toomey may end up ho-ho-ho-ing a little jollier. Since this happened, a human rights attorney has appeared and his phone has been jingling all the way with offers galore... I haven't seen this couple come forward and would like to say this to them... For Kris Kringle's sake...LIGHTEN UP!!! I liked it much better when we could laugh at things that may not be politically correct and not worry that everything we say or do will be put on the Internet, with a gaggle of lawyers standing by to make a quick buck...
