    Bad, bad, bad idea. I sort of laughed at some of the people commenting in the story, saying they thought it was 'inappropriate'. Inappropriate???? How about waaaayyyyyyyy nasty and self-righteous. Man, is she in for a pumpkin-smashing, toilet-paper wrapping bring down on her house some time after Halloween.

    No one is obligated to pass out candy on Halloween. If you go door to door asking for something, in my opinion you need to take or not take whatever you are willing to give them. I know many people pass out religious literature along with their candy. If people do not like that, then they will not go to that house or throw the papers away.

    Seriously? You don't see anything wrong with someone who happily gives out candy to the skinny kids but gives a note to the overweight kids saying "You're fat. No candy for you."????? We're not talking about religious literature here. Good grief.

    I am saying it is an entitlement attitude to think that someone has to give your child anything. The person might be a jerk, but they do not have to give anything at all to anyone.

    Um, see I don't think my kids or any kid has a sense of entitlement when they walk up to a lit house with a pumpkin out front or whatever on October 31st. It's Halloween for crying out loud. The people that don't want to give out candy typically turn out the lights or leave for the evening. So, even if a kid does have a sense of "entitlement" (and the use of that word I disagree with in the context of this debate) for candy, then so freaking what? I sure as heck expected to get candy when I went trick or treating. Isn't that the whole point of it? You ring the bell, the door opens, you yell "Trick or Treat", you get candy.

    Anyway, this has nothing to do with entitlement or whatever. It has to do with an idiot woman who feels she has the right to fat shame kids on Halloween, of all nights.

    Then don't give out anything! But to pick and choose what kids get to have candy based on your standards and NO knowledge of that child's health or anything is pretty sick to me.

    It's not like I'm mad that she's giving out only almond joy's and I hate almond joys.

    Ya I think nothing is better than giving certain kids a nasty letter. Way to make Halloween fun for everyone. A Halloween Grinch if there ever was one.

    Well sure no one is obligated to hand out candy. That doesn't mean anything you decided to do otherwise is a nice or good thing to do.

    I mean if she passed out notes that said "I hate you" would we be saying thats okay because no one is obligated to hand out candy?

    I do not see anywhere in the OP where it says that some kids are getting candy and some are not.
