Dec. 6 (UPI) -- A 6-year-old who noticed some holes in the Santa Claus story used his school-required letter to St. Nick to air some of his grievances with the jolly old elf.

Sarah McCammon, an NPR reporter, tweeted the letter her precocious 6-year-old son authored to Santa Claus, and the note didn't include any requests for presents.

The letter reads:

"Dear Santa,

Santa I'm only doing this for the class. I know your notty list is empty. And your good list is emty. and your life is emty. You don't know the troubles Ive had in my life. Good bye.


Im not telling you my name."

"My 6yo Santa skeptic was told to write a letter to Santa at school. So he did..." McCammon tweeted.

She explained in a follow-up about the "troubles" her son alluded to in the note.

"PS - the 'troubles' in his life? His brother. Don't call child services," she wrote.
