    50% of the groups that came to my house tonight looking for candy were young couples with a child in a stroller. The baby ain't eatin' the candy! WTF!

    It's not easy to find a baby sitter on Halloween. We've had a few group of pre-school or very young kids who clearly came from other neighborhoods. Saw the cars pull up and unload. The kids were in costume, they said 'thank you', they were welcome at our door. And yes, some groups had kids in strollers with their group, so what? Now if it were just parents with a kid in a stroller, I'd have given them a children's book rather than candy.

    Now we've also had two groups of 30-somethings. Had it been me answering the door, I'd have asked them what grade they were in, told them 'trick' and closed the door.

    That's what I'm talking about. Just parents with a baby. I can understand groups with strollers. I ain't that bitter of an old man...for 24 at least.

    DFW area.....Wylie.
    We had a ton of kids come by, as usual. We get a lot from surrounding neighborhoods, I guess they want to maximize their candy production by hitting the entire city. We had a couple of boys that were probably 16-18 and were not even dressed up.......what's up with that (I'll try to be optimistic and pretend it was 8 year olds with real good costumes)? We had a couple of 18-22 yo girls that were dressed like hookers....I gave em a little extra candy for perking up my night.

    Yep, run into that b.s. too last few years with 16+ and no costume. Now I just say no way and shut the door on them. Pretty pathetic, then again what do you expect from an age group today that still watches Saturday morning cartoons at 19-years-old? WTF?
