Sarah's parents, trying to take advantage of her interest in Santa Claus, reminded the four-year-old that Santa was watching and doesn't like it when children fight and pick on their siblings. This had little impact. "I'll just have to tell Santa about your misbehavior," her mother said as she picked up the phone and dialed. Sarah's eyes grew big as her mother asked, "Mrs. Claus" (really Sarah's aunt; Santa's real line was busy) if she could put Santa on the line. Sarah's mouth dropped open as Mom described to Santa (Sarah's uncle) how the child was acting. But, when Mom said that Santa wanted to talk to her, Sarah reluctantly took the phone. Santa, in a deepened voice, said there would be nothing under the tree Christmas morning for children who fought with their sisters. He would be watching, and he expected things to be better from now on. Sarah, now even more wide eyed, solemnly nodded to each of Santa's remarks and silently hung the phone up when he was done. After a long moment, Mom (holding in her chuckles at being so clever) asked, "What did Santa say to you, dear?" In almost a whisper, Sarah sadly but matter-of-factly stated, "Santa said he won't be bringing Hannah any presents this year." v PSAI Events Visit: https://psai.org/events/ DECEMBER 24–25 Office closed for Christmas holiday 31–1 Office closed for New Year's holiday JANUARY 7 Virtual Roundtable—Portable Sanitation Hot Topics 14 Virtual Training—Transportation and Logistics 21 Virtual Roundtable—Portable Sanitation Hot Topics FEBRUARY 11 Virtual Training—Servicing and Maintaining Equipment 25 Virtual Roundtable—Portable Sanitation Hot Topics
