“I’m Really Frustrated,” Says Boy Waiting 8 Hours For Santa

DETROIT (CBS DETROIT) – Many metro Detroiters went out ahead of the bad weather to make a mad last minute dash to the mall but as WWJ’s Kathryn Larson discovered weekend shopping isn’t all that super when it comes to seeing Santa:

It’s been a bit of a nightmare for the Scott Nigl family from Freeland, Michigan who say they’ll have to wait eight hours to see Santa.

“We arrived at quarter to nine, which we thought we’d be okay, but now we’re going to be waiting until about five-thirty (p.m.),” said Nigl.

So how does that make eight year old Jacob feel? “I’m really frustrated,” he says in a quivering voice.

Jacob has been waiting to tell Santa he’d like a BB gun for Christmas.

Jacob’s dad says getting a BB gun will be up to Santa this year.
