Suburban Dad Goes Viral For Cheap Halloween Candy Complaint
Beware if this guy brings his kid trick-or-treating in Rockford!
A few weeks ago a man who lives in Elmhurst, IL posted a letter on his community Facebook page about how the quality of candy he's been seeing in the past two years, it was immediately shared on Twitter as well as over 600 times on Facebook.
Kevin Flanagan originally posted the letter on Facebook and I'm curious if my brother and sister-in-law know him because they moved to Elmhurst a few years ago.
In the letter, which most of the commenters found to be pretty darn funny, Kevin says that Elmhurst is, 'an affluent neighborhood and this status should be reflected in our candy provisions for Halloween. Standard size candy is the bar (pun intended) we set for our community on Halloween. If you purchased the fun size, you don’t need to return them. Just keep in mind that 3-4 of those fun size bars equate to a standard size bar when you dole out that candy to trick or treaters..'
He goes on to say that if you don't take his advice, ' let it be known that this year, there are several of us parents patrolling and monitoring the candy distribution of houses in our neighborhood. We will be carrying around small cans of spray paint and marking the sidewalks in front of your house with a red dot in hopes of preventing others from experiencing the same ill fate and time wasted. We will also be noting your address and creating/selling a color-coded map for the 2020 Halloween season (app projected to launch for the 2021 season). Once you’re marked and listed on the map, you might as well turn off the lights and stop celebrating Halloween!'
What are you planning on passing out for Halloween this year?
