Two boys of about 10 came to the door trick or treating tonight. One boy was in a wheelchair being pushed by the other, and both were dressed vaguely as Dracula. I've never seen them in the neighborhood before. I offered them sweets, but they turned them down and asked quite forcefully for money instead. As I was alone in the house, I didn't want to argue, so gave them some money and quickly shut the door. They didn't say thank you.
I was a bit suspicious of them, so went upstairs and watched them leave from behind the curtains. To my amazement, as soon as they got to the end of my drive, the boy in the wheelchair suddenly stood up and walked quickly on up the road. Then I saw that as soon as they got to another house, back in the wheelchair he went before they rang the bell. :shock:
He didn't look at all disabled, so I assume that they were using the wheelchair to gain sympathy ( and money ) from people. I think I've seen it all now :roll: :shock:
