Mom is on the bleeding edge of child safety.

Those things are expensive. Should have sent the kid for another round to get the replacement blades.

Holy crap. Their house is so childproof that their kids don't have access to anything as dangerous as a safety razor? Those kids will leave the house and promptly get darwinned. Sometimes I think that overparenting is worse than underparenting.

Your daughter is only 10, she's already smooth down there. Nothing to worry about.

Probably pulled it out of the same bag from the drugstore they brought the candy home in.

I once got someone's car and house keys in a little paper bag, and had to go back and knock on more doors to find out whose. Finally, "No, we haven't lost... hey those are our keys!" and since trick-or-treating was over, They gave me about a hundred packages of Whopper malted milk balls they had left over.

FTFA: "Worrell worries what could have happened if she had not checked the contents first"

I bet we can all see the horror of what could have been.
Obviously the girl would have taken apart the razor gotten the blade out and choked it down with a large coke. Or gone on a murder rampage around the neighborhood because no one was giving out full sized bars. Or slit her mom's throat in the night for not allowing her more candy. Or shaved her head in rebellion. Or cut her own eyelids off from the sugar rush (it's a hell of a drug).

Not necessarily. You can get a 10-pack of the cheapo version of the disposable Bic razors at Dollar Tree for $1.

I'm more inclined to think it was either done as a joke by someone in the area where the girl went trick-or-treating, or maybe someone ran out of candy and tossed that in the bag instead.
 
2012-11-03 01:55:15 PM  
This is absolutely f*cking hilarious.

First of all, without reading TFA I can tell you EXACTLY why this person started doing this - he (or she or them) was TIRED of having 16+ year olds coming to the house...not in costume and carrying a pillowcase...and begging for candy.

I used to hand out job applications in envelopes. We lived in a very nice neighborhood...halloween saw a pretty heavy traffic of little kids, all excited and cute and dressed up - they ALL got nice candy. THEN...later in the night, come the VANS...literal vans full of..uh...urban yoots...your Travons, your Damonts, your Newports, your Sinutabs. Note it's not about the color, it's about the AGE. I'm just saying data-wise in my case they tended to be 99% of the above. And all male - no women.

So I'm guessing this dude observed the same and started dumping safety razors. Dangerous? Hardly. Expensive? Kinda! Funny? As hell.

No, sometimes it actually happens but not at the 70s"OMG. Razor blades in apples!" level. Friends in Mastic Beach, LI, took their 7-yo trick or treating last year and in her bag of candy was a Cascade dishwasher tablet, still wrapped. They are relatively normal people, not batshiat overprotective at all. Dad went ballistic & called cops. They couldn't remember which house it came from but he flagged down every parent on the street. One other kid had the same thing. That parent laughed it off--tried to remember which house had a senile old lady or bored teenager handing out candy.

Friend wasn't so cavalier. He knew his daughter wasn't dumb enough to eat it but what about a younger kid? Still, not poisonous or really harmful but it bugged him that maybe someone thought this was an acceptable practical joke.

Since I've lived here, I've had 2 big, goofy dogs that the neighborhood kids love to play with. So, most of the kids and parents know us. I make cupcakes, brownies, and chocolate-covered pretzels to hand out. The time I did this, we'd already lived here 4 years. Every parent told their kid, "it's okay to take one at this house--we know them".

That bugged me. ALL of those tainted candy stories have been false. Why the hell can't everyone just hand out what they want without having to feel like a potential criminal? Besides, brownies & cupcakes are WAY cheaper than packaged candy.,

Razor blades? Meh. I used to slip ice cubes into the paper bags a lot of the younger kids used, then sent out my own kid to follow them and score the dropouts from the torn bags. Then she would bring home the candy and we would hand THAT out. We would generally get through every Halloween with only one small bag of candy.

SwiftFox: Psylent1: NutWrench: That's a weird Halloween gift.

They ran out of toothpaste.

Probably pulled it out of the same bag from the drugstore they brought the candy home in.

I once got someone's car and house keys in a little paper bag, and had to go back and knock on more doors to find out whose. Finally, "No, we haven't lost... hey those are our keys!" and since trick-or-treating was over, They gave me about a hundred packages of Whopper malted milk balls they had left over.


Somebody gives you a house and a car for Halloween and you take it back?

There's no pleasing some people.

I be. A step up from candy corn, yet somehow more insulting.

Usually I'm perfectly fine with calling out stupid parents but I don't really think her reaction was so outrageous. Obviously a 10 year old should be smart enough not to hurt herself but if someone is making a joke of passing out packaged razors, if they ended up in the bag of a smaller child who thought it was a toy, it was worth letting other parents know so they they could check the bags extra carefully.

She might not have known which house put it in, and it sounds like they visited multiple streets, so she told the HOA so that other parents could be alerted. It probably didn't need to be a news article but it doesn't seem unreasonable.

First of all, it's called a safety razor for a reason. Secondly, if she was worried about neighborhood safety rather than waning neighborhood exclusivity, she would have called the cops, not the HOA. And someone dumb enough to do any of this in the first place, is also dumb enough to have made the whole thing up.

Every year we hear about the candy doctored with a razor blade. It doesn't happen. The biggest psycho in town knows that the blow back from doing this would be epic. If it was ever reported it would trump everything else in the news. Trust me, the police would never be called. It would truly be a mob with torches and pitchforks.

So your problem with it is that it wasn't dangerous enough to warrant any action but also that she should have raised more of a fuss and called the cops? There aren't enough details in the article to tell whether or not she and her daughter traveled outside of the bounds of her HOA so I don't automatically assume her issue is with "neighborhood exclusivity".

Seems to me that since it wasn't razor blades in candy or anything obviously malicious she might not have thought it was something that required police attention, but that it might be a good idea to alert the neighborhood to make sure nothing bad happened. Maybe she made it up...but I'm just having trouble understanding the anger here.

Either Mommy put it there, or it's a funny joke. And if I were the cops, I'd be asking Mommy a few questions right now, because historically the only time something funny's happened with candy, the parents were involved...

/If this is an AW, I really hope it backfires.

My bet is it was an innocent mistake. Someone goes grocery shopping for last minute hallowe'en candy and decides to get some razor blades and other assorted items at the same time. Comes home, trick or treaters are already ringing the bell. In a haste grabs all the bags of candy and dumps them into a bowl and accidentally dumps a few disposable razors in the bowl too.

In the ever increasing need to grab attention on store shelves all packaging has become a generic wash of overstimulated noise. Razor blade packaging looks not dissimilar from candy packaging from dog treat packaging etc. etc.

Probably happens a dozen times across the country each hallowe'en. All it takes is one "ZOMG! WON'T SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN!" to propel a non-story into the news.

Be as the buddhist. Detatch yourself from desires. Welcome observations about your words and refine your words to eliminate observations for then you can attain nirvana. The path to happiness is to not have any situation that can make you unhappy. The world of FARK is an illusion. It is not the real world and you should not allow yourself to be made unhappy by any event that transpires within its boundaries.

Ah, the great HOA that is Florida. Can we just put up a fence that says "no admittance, unless you are a Disney World ticket holder and therefore get an extended pass for up to 14 days?"
