Like so many accidental managers, Santa is absolutely brilliant at many aspects of his “day job”.  
Or in this case – his “one day a year” job. 
He gets the job done – you can always rely on Santa to get the job done on time, and to the highest standards. He might only have one night to deliver all the presents, but he makes sure at the start of the night that he has everything he needs, and he gets his head down and gets on with the job, and doesn’t give up until all the presents have been delivered before the children wake up on Christmas morning. 
He never lets a customer down – whatever the customer asks for, Santa delivers, on time every time. Bicycle, Xbox or dolls house, it will be there, in perfect condition, on Christmas morning. 
He always looks the part – you can rely on him to be well turned out on every occasion, in full uniform and instantly recognisable as Santa. 
But there are definitely 7 signs Santa is an accidental manager
