A -aged couple asked him why Santa was always so , to which he replied, “because I know where all the boys and girls live”. They complained his humour was in bad . He was shocked to receive his orders the following day. Toomey became the world’s second most famous Santa. Thousands of customers complained to Macy’s about his . He was offered dozens of new jobs around the world. He accepted one just down the from Macy’s. He told reporters: "Helping the kids - that's what it's all about, you know.”
