We never get any so we go to my friends' house and have dinner and hang out there. They usually get hundreds of kids, but this year only about 40 or 50.

This little kid made me mad though. I gave him a Snickers and Twix and he just stood there so I stared at him. He's like 5y.o. mind you. Then he says "I want chocolate!". I was like "I just gave you chocolate...". Then the mom stared at me like she was gonna eat my face off. How f***ing rude. I shoulda thrown the whole bowl at his face. HAHAHA!!!

Our houses aren't close together and the walk to the front door is longer than average so we only get about 35 kids a year.

Once when I had a new lawn seeded I tried to stop a woman with a stroller who decided to take a shortcut across the yard to the next house. She had trouble pushing it and yelled asking why I had so much mud. It wasn't mud, it was cow manure.

We used to get a lot of kids, however, the kids have gotten older even though their parents haven't, lol! We had about 6-8 groups of kids, 2-4 kids per group.

About 2000, that's because I was at work on Halloween night and im a store manager in the mall. I only had 600 pieces of candy and ran out by 5pm.

No one trick or treats in my neighborhood... because no one has kids.
