Santa photo-op was naughty, not nice

Bah-humbug to Vintage Faire Mall! After spending what little money I had this year, it was appalling that after standing in line for 20 or more minutes to see Santa, the woman running the show would not let us take a picture with our own camera. It was appalling to hear her say that Santa was a business, and that I would need to purchase a package from them. I asked, "Since when did Santa become a business?" She just replied, "It's policy." Some people just don't have the money in these tough economic times to fork over another $20 to $30. It's enough that we spend our gas, time and money at the mall; they could at least have let us take one picture of our kids with Santa.
