It’s Halloween, and you just ran out of candy. If the neighborhood kids (or anyone else, really) were to truly scare you, what trick would they have to subject you to?
Oh boy! I would not want to be that guy – the one who runs out of candy and we have a bunch of kids in scary costumes standing outside the door with their buckets and their bags and holding them out expecting some candy. And there you are with fear in your eyes and no candy and having to open the door and smile awkwardly and explaining that you did have some candy but you are all out. The stares they’d give you at that point could melt steel.
So if I was ever in that situation to scare me all they’d have to say is “Mister, you’ve got to be kidding us.” and then they’d take axes and knives from their costumes and stalk me until I cave and give them all the money that I have on me and say “Here, take this. It’s better than money! It can buy you booze!” and cry in a corner until they decide to leave but not before threatening me once again.
Man that can be scary!
