Arash’s “I wish to file a complaint” Story


My name is Arash and I am an elf.I need to file a complaint!

If you if you think that Santa is a nice, jolly, old fella, then you are WRONG!!!!!

I work twenty hours a day, seven days a week. Yes, Santa Monica gives us a nice home, but it’s in the North Pole and we have to share it with three other elf families.

He does feed us well, but he makes us do all the cooking. He makes all the elves work ALL THE TIME. Of course we get holidays off…NOT!!! The only day off we get is on Christmas Eve, after we’ve loaded up his sleigh. When I am not making toys, I am either at the mall with Santa, or I am taking care of his reindeer. The biggest concern I have is for my children. They’ve never been to Hogwarts! Santa really needs to offer some sort education for these kids! The only thing they know how to do is to make a bouncy ball! Seriously? Santa has not been good to us elves. HE should be put on the naughty list, for a change! Oh, did I forget to mention it? WE DIG THE COAL, too!!! It is a very dirty job. Don’t get me wrong. I love seeing all the children’s faces when they open all the presents we’ve made for them on Christmas day, BUT THAT IS ONCE A YEAR!!!!! Well, I’ve said everything I came to say. I’ve got to get back to work. AS ALWAYS! An elf’s work is never done.

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks!
