Halloween is one my favorite days of the year. However, it seems to bring low class people out of their holes. I lost count of the number of adults holding trick or treat bags for infants that were being pushed around in strollers. Just in case you are wondering, yes I called them all out on their ridiculous behavior. I told them that the baby was too young to eat candy and they said that the baby could suck on it. I told them that the baby had no business eating candy and that they should know better. This is where bad parenting begins. They had no shame!
Every year I post a sign on my front door that reads "NO COSTUMES, NO CANDY"! Halloween is about having fun and dressing up. You don't just get to go door to door demanding candy just because you are you. Everyone who wants candy from me must have a costume! It doesn't matter how poor you are, you can come up with a costume, even if you just put make-up on your face. I had a kid who had one black mark drawn on his face and I gave him candy. His friend didn't make the effort so he didn't get any candy.
I also lost count of the number of adults with no costumes and no infants that expected to get candy. Grown people going trick or treating with no costumes is just plain low class. Let me rephrase that, grown people trick or treating period is low class. There's nothing wrong with dressing up and taking your kids trick or treating but you should not expect nor demand candy!
Don't forget to tune in on Friday to read about women who are pregnant with twins but only want one child.
