Happy Halloween

10/27/2009   Comment on This

The other day, riding through the neighborhood, I noticed a bunch of kids and their parents trick or treating. I thought Halloween was this coming Saturday but they want to have their special day in their subdivision.

The kid rings the bell and I have no candy. The parent looks at me like I am nuts. I may be “a little nuts,” but my kids are grown, I don't live in their subdivision, and the look of entitlement on mommy and daddy's face is overwhelming.

This is my fault I ask?

Why don't you put a note about your "special" day in my mail box so I can make sure I have candy for those little monsters?

I don't get it.

I then go out to get candy and as I drive very carefully in the neighborhood some parent with their 3 or 4 year old kid BEHIND them is walking on the street. Mom has the two dogs on the other side of the street. Why they take Rin-Tin-Tin and Sparky with them is a mystery to me. I thought if dogs eat chocolate they get sick.

This little beautiful girl darts in front of my car to get to mommy and the dogs. Thank God I have my foot on the break pedal going 3-4 MPH. I still missed the kid by an eyelash.

Daddy looks at me with his palms up and has a few choice words for the Pinker like this is my fault. I Have a few choice words for this idiot and explain that the kid should be in front, not behind you.

Accountability? None.

People are always saying” “look at the kids today.”


Look at the parents today. Maybe there is something in the well water. In the meantime no one else comes after I get the candy and my dogs get into the milky ways.

Happy Halloween.
