Kids are funny.

According to CBC News, a 7-year-old boy called the police on Christmas morning to report a crime. A crime against humanity. Even worse, a crime against Santa Claus.

Ontario Provincial Police say a seven-year-old boy called 911 to report his dissatisfaction with receiving snow pants as a Christmas gift. Sgt. Kerry Schmidt says the boy made the call at about 8 a.m. on Tuesday to complain about the gift. Officers ensured there wasn’t an actual emergency at the boy’s home, Schmidt says, adding that he believes the boy was spoken to about calling 911 for non-emergencies.

Hard to blame the kid, I mean snow pants? C’mon mom, get your head out of your ass and stop ruining Christmas. However, since this all took place in Canada, snow pants are probably pretty damn useful. You need them. Still, I wonder what was the end game here? Is mom under fire for coming up short this year or are we trying to get Santa Claus on fraud charges? After all, it’s pretty “marginal” to still believe in Santa Claus at 7.

Either way, I don’t blame him, don’t blame him one bit. Fuck snow pants.
