Seriously… they ring the bell and stand there like beggars without a costume, a smile or saying “treat or treat” or even an evil laugh. I told the first group of them (with a smile) “Sorry kids, no costume, no candy.” One of the larger boys and one of the girls said, “bitch” quite nearly in unision. I was appalled and shut the door.
Of course then I got to thinking… I’m home alone with a puppy for a guard dog and my own teens and husband are at the high school football game.
My reply this year is no different than other year in the past, it’s just that usually I have my own house full of teens staring back at the teen beggars and laughing and sort of “backing me up”.
Do you say anything to these rude twerps or just doll out the pay off?
What would you have said, if anything, in response to being called a bitch as above?
