Give me a Blackberry or the reindeer gets it.
I don’t know about anyone else, but when I was a kid Santa Claus was one of the reasons you behaved. If you didn’t, you were on the “naughty” list and would get coal in your stocking instead of that awesome Barbie house with sound effects and a working elevator. Suffice it to say, death threats would not have gotten me what I wanted.
Apparently just the opposite is true for 13 year-old Mekeeda Austin. She wrote a letter to Santa — like a lot of kids do — but instead of promising good behavior or milk and cookies, she threatened to kill Santa, then slaughter his reindeer and feed them to the homeless if she didn’t get at least two of the gifts on her list.
At least she’s planning on helping those in need?
Normally the natural next step would be for a swift punishment from her parents alongside a promise that she will get absolutely nothing on that list. Right? Well, not exactly. Her mom, Tracey, is planning on getting her as many things as possible from the letter, because “you don’t want to get on the wrong side of her.”
The girl seriously doesn’t get what’s wrong with death threats, even if they are against fictional characters. She said, “I don’t see any problem with the letter, I want all of these things and I don’t see why I shouldn’t get them.” And if she really does get her way, clearly she won’t learn better any time soon.
All this for a Blackberry, a designer sweater, money and Converse sneakers. Oh, and the real Justin Bieber or Austin Malone.
