Special Helper Scunner

Posted by Santa Claus on November 25th, 2012

You might remember Scunner did not do so well with the reindeer.  I am still trying to find a new job for him here at the North Pole.  Your ideas have been a great help.

I thought that maybe I could use my own special little helper.  After all, I am very busy this time of the year.  An extra pair of hands would be very helpful.  Scunner liked the idea too.

I told Scunner one of his jobs would be taking notes from one department to another.

‘Aye Santa that will be fine.’  He smiled and so we set off for our day.

To be honest the morning went really well.  He was very helpful and polite.  I was very impressed.

A bit later, Scunner had a note for the doll department.  I was walking down the hall when he zipped by me in terror.

‘Santa, help me,’ he wailed as he hid behind my leg.  ‘They all want to give me a cuddle.’

I did not know what he meant.  Then I peeked around the corner.  There were thirty or forty dolls all walking towards us.  ‘I’ll hug you better’ they were all saying.

Light bulb! I understood what had happened.

We have been trying out a new doll that hugs you when you are not feeling well.  Scunner said he had sneezed in the doll department.  Then all the dolls jumped out of their boxes and chased him.  They wanted to hug him to make him feel better!

The only problem is that Scunner is not a “hug-a-bug”.  He does NOT like toys hugging him!

I don’t think he likes being my special little helper any more.  He is always afraid cuddly toys will attack him again!  (There are many cuddly toys at the North Pole after all).

I will have to think of a new job for Scunner.  But first, I have to tell the research department that the Hug-U-Better dolls are not a good idea.

They scared me a bit too.

Merry Christmas!

    Maybe scunner wants a new job ask him what HE wants to do instead of YOU giving him a job to do. Does he like cooking if so what about a cooking job? He would apreciate a job he wants to do not one he is scared of or bored of.

    poor scunner I bet that was frightning! I was thinking that maybe scunner could be someone who is in charge of feeding the rest of the elves and the reindeers or maybe he could be in charge of the naughty and nice list.
