About Me

Hi, my name is Randy Hill and I am just one of thousands of people around the world, tired and frustrated with the lack of consideration that is displayed by a growing "demographic" that I call, "the great unwashed and ill-mannered." People who can't seem to get outside their little world long enough to see the stress that they create on the rest of the population.

I've created this blog and online store as an outlet for this pent-up frustration...and also to have a little devious fun while I'm at it!

Have fun and keep it down while you're in here. Thanks.

Trick or Treat Etiquette 101

By Randy | October 29, 2007

I found the following “Trick or Treat Etiquette” rules on the Citizen-Times.com website and thought it was a pretty good list. It also reminds me that I need to be sure and get enough candy for the teenage and adult trick or treaters. Whatever happened to trick or treating being a kid’s thing to do?

• Knock on the door and say, “Trick-or-treat,” in a nice voice.

• Hold out the bag and say, “Thank you.”

• Now, if offered candy from a tray or bowl, be mindful of those who’ll come behind you. In other words, don’t grab a handful. One or two pieces are plenty.

• Don’t be greedy if the candy is unattended.

• Don’t go to the same house but once.

• Don’t roll the house or do anything criminal.

• If tricks are played, they should be clever or funny and not destructive.

• Remember awareness. If you see something wrong, such as an overturned luminary, tell someone or stand it back up if it’s not dangerous.
