Pet Peeves: Halloween Edition
Good times with this. Teenagers not in costumes thinking they're A) intimidating, and B) going to get candy from me.
Next up, costume contests and the jerkoffs who vote in them. Don't get me wrong, I dig a good party with a contest like this, but why does the cave man/woman always win, or the lame cliche costume of the year (usually a politician, or a dead dictator/public figure)? If skin is all that gets you going, go a titty bar and enjoy. Halloween costume parties are fun to watch slutty chicks wear the uniform they want to wear all year long, but how do you let them win the contest? Guys can be such losers.
Lastly, cheap candy... People give out some really ****** stuff anymore. When I was a kid, you'd get a decent haul on just your neighborhood, and the candy was usually decent quality. Now though, man, people just suck. They get the crummies candy, half of it old, and a lot of it winds up getting tossed because it's not really good anymore.
I'll add one last one... ******bag gangs of kids trying to act, again, intimidating, in the line to get into the local haunted houses... It's actually wound up being a major issue and shut down some of the old, better places that used to be here. Thankfully the best one here has sort of a security patrol of costumed people who will also shut kids up and keep them in line.
Plus it's an awesome haunt. Love that place and wish I could make a 2nd trip this year.
