He should be grateful his Hustler hoodie doesn't qualify as a "costume"
It's true. Halloween sucks if you're a jerk.
can we get an approximate age on this gentleman?
If you're wearing a costume, then you're trick or treating. If you're wearing normal clothes, you're asking strangers for food door to door.
Wait, he's dressed as Uncle Fester, right?
I refused candy to people not wearing costumes, but my mother got really mad and took over with giving out the candy. I believe If you want the candy then put out the damn effort! I wasn't even trick or treating but I still dressed up, and I was a damn awesome butterfly!
He should try it while pushing around a small child. I gets candy too!
I'm 27. My friend is 22. We both made costumes and went trick-or-treating this year (I went as Snorlax, she as a duck). No costumes, no candy. Simple as that.You're never too old for free candy and you're never too young to put in SOME DAMN EFFORT for your costume.
"You're never too old for free candy"I think you're getting close to the cut-off point. Unless you want to be known as the 'special' person in your street, as you wedge your 40-year-old ass into your home-made costume and race 5-year-olds down the sidewalk for the pick of kid's treats.Go to a freakin' party.
Seriously, 27? That's disturbing.
I greatly anticipate the Our Valued Customers Commentors comic strip.
Hey, why not? Repairman Jack did it, and Jack's as cool as they get. So just wedge your ass into that Creature from the Black Lagoon costume and trick-or-treat like there's no tomorrow!
I think at 27 you are twice the cut-off age. Once puberty starts to kick in you no longer qualify.
I gave someone an emergency trick or treat ride this year when their vehicle crapped out at the last minute, and sat in the car while they took their kids door to door.* I was absolutely stunned to see that probably 3/4s of the trick or treaters I saw were 16 or older, with no kids with them. When did this start?*And yes, I did feel creepy as fuck sitting alone in a parked vehicle in the dark as throngs of children passed by in costume. I was neither oblivious of nor comfortable with the situation.
This guy probably gets pissed that he doesnt' get money without having to work for it either.
Anyone old enough to shave is too damn old to trick or treat.
How did this guy come to this conclusion? Do he perform some sort of sociological experiment one Halloween for his Research Methods class?
@Dr. Tarr: What is wrong with you? The cut-off age should be the age where you start going to halloween parties. For me that was 17.
Wow. that's pretty sad. I mean, most lazy assholes a least get one of those shitty store-bought masks and where it with normal clothes...
No costume, no candy. It's like an unwritten law.
Wow, what is wrong with you people? So s/he's 27 and goes trick-or-treating, so what? I don't see what the big deal is. Adults get sold costumes all the time, and not just for parties. If someone wants to dress up and have fun going door to door to get the treats, I don't see how that's so terrible. I was never lucky enough to celebrate Halloween or trick-or-treat because my mother was a religious fanatic and when I finally got freedom, I was already 18 and 'too late'... But maybe someday I'll trick-or-treat even though I'll be 25 next year.
The last time I went trick or treating for myself, I went with a friend when we were 13. When we got "aren't you a little old for this" for the third time at the fourth house, we gave it up. Trick or treating is for the kids. There's no reason for adults to horn in on it.
No, anonymous, adult costumes are just for parties. If you are over twelve and going door-to-door for candy then you've got some issues to deal with.No wonder so many kids in their twenties still live with their parents these days. The want to be pampered little children their whole lives. They have no self respect.
Adult trick or treaters freak me out. Who wants to open the door to a bunch of strange men in scary costumes?
I had to stop trick or treating last year, because my Silver Surfer outfit was starting to freak people out. No one wants to see a grown man wearing a silver bikini bottom, holding a garbage bag and an ironing board. Okay, that's not my story, it's a comedian I can't remember the name of. Seriously though, I did catch a couple teens a few years ago without real costumes. I asked them where their costumes were and they looked at each other like "Oh crap..." But then they gave some half-assed explanation of their half-assed "costumes" and I reluctantly gave them some. We don't get many t-r-t'ers here anyway.
Once you’re an adult, you can always just go to the supermarket and buy as much candy as you want. You don’t need anyone’s permission. So adult trick-or-treaters must be doing it for the experience rather than the candy.There’s something disturbing about the combination of the shaved head and the “Hustler” hoodie. If it were one or the other it wouldn’t matter, but together it seems more perverted somehow.
