I’ve seen this a few times, usually after the initial wave of trick-or-treaters has passed. Some 13-year-old kid thinks he’s too old to wear a costume but can’t resist the allure of free candy, so he shows up and tries to panhandle some Snickers off me. I’ve toyed with enforcing a “no costume, no candy” policy, but I prefer the air to remain in my tires and my house to remain egg and toilet paper free, so I hand off the Halloween candy and let it go, knowing full well I’ve fallen victim to an adolescent protection racket.
