From a Dec 9 status report by Crystal Rain, Director of Santa’s List:
Preliminary list approved by Santa without little comment, pending SBI Coal Determination Unit’s final recommendations, with one minor exception. Santa rejected personal recommendation from SBI Chief, Mr. Elvis, due to lack of sufficient reason given for Coal Determination Unit review. Approved list includes Mikey Richardson in “good” column.
Union of Santa’s Elves Local #1 has agreed to mandatory overtime from Dec 18 to Dec 24 only, not to exceed 20 hours per elf.
North Pole Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Reindeer submitted annual plea for alternative means of locomotion. Suggestions forwarded to Santa’s Sleigh Operations HQ as usual; agreed to allow SPCR to perform no more than 3 surprise reindeer condition inspections before Christmas.
All in all, business as usual. Let’s have a great Christmas again this year!
