There's no candy here

Posted By on Fri, Oct 31, 2008 at 1:16 PM

So, it's Halloween, but everybody isn't in the giving mood. For goodness sakes, we're in a recession and have you seen the price of chocolate lately?

Here's a message to the kids: Don't knock on the door with the light off. Inside that house may be a person who lost their job today and they don't want to give you a damned thing.

If the light is off, you could be disturbing a groove. What if this is the only chance that a two-wife-having police officer has time to see his mistress? He's the one getting all the candy and probably not going to share. And then there is someone like me, who really doesn't want to be bothered. I feel as if I have the right to toss eggs at any beggars, ur, trick or treaters who knock on my door.

Think about it -- Charlotte residents complain about homeless people asking for money for food, but these same people dress their kids up in ridiculous outfits and encourage them to beg for candy. Something in the water doesn't compute.

Moral of the story is, if the light is off, just don't knock.
