Put Out An Empty Candy Bowl On Halloween

Need some last-minute Halloween candy, because you were either too cheap to buy any or you ate it all yourself? Here’s a hack: you actually don’t.

Instead, put out an empty bowl. Think of it as a costume for your house: you are dressing it up as a house that was giving out candy, but has since run out. What an honest mistake the fictional you made! Just trying to bring a little joy to the kids in the neighbourhood while being lazy, and now look what’s happened.

Nudge the narrative along with an appropriate sign: something like “Please only take ONE, thanks. Happy Halloween!” Underline the “ONE” several times. Then trick-or-treaters will get mad at the greedy kids who must have come before them, and not at innocent little you.
