If you look like you're old enough to hold down a job and aren't accompanied by at least one rugrat, GTFO my porch.

High school can be ok, but by that point you're expecting high effort well done serious business costumes, or they're accompanying younger kids and just felt like dressing up to do it

Anyone that's too old will probably come by in a small group.  Give only part of them treats, and tell the unlucky one to take it up with the others.

This. Them's the rules. Gotta wear a costume, probably should be accompanying younger

The amount of Farkers okay with high schoolers going to an unchaperoned Halloween party and getting dangerously drunk is too damn high.

Yeah, the teens wearing Yankee caps and saying "I'm Derek Jeter" were king of annoying>

One year a teenaged girl in an elaborate homemade unicorn costume showed up alone at our door pretty late in the evening. It was pouring rain, and she looked like she was about to cry. I wanted to give her a hug, but she was too soggy.

In HS I went to a unchaperoned costume party.  I was wearing a grass skirt.  This was the 80s, and there was a big bowl of "punch" at the entrance where everybody just poured in their liquor.

I woke up, sitting against a wall, still wearing a grass skirt but now it was covered in vomit.

/Not good times

"Dear Penthouse.

A horny, wet teen showed up on my doorstep..."

I basically told my teens that if you're too cool to put on a actual costume, then you're just planning on hanging out with your friends and causing chaos.  Hang out with your friends some other night, or in a vaguely supervised place.

As for giving out candy, my rule is they had to say "trick or treat."  If they just shoved the collection bag towards me, I'd patiently wait...  Too cool to say "trick or treat" then you get nothing.  Most of them figured it out.

Wearing a costume? You get candy.

I don't know your issues, I ain't gonna judge you.

Hey, baby, I'll give you a "treat" if you'll do a "trick".

Everyone gets candy when they come to my door. I don't care how old they look, 5 or 85. I usually buy different candy for adults. Also I keep a teal pumpkin out so the parents of the kids with Autism know that my house is a safe one for their kid to trick or treat. Try to remember that the children with autism might be older than the average trick or treater and that they might not be able to say trick or treat.

I don't care how old you are, if you're wearing a costume, or at least an attempt at one, you get candy from me.

I rarely get trick or treaters, because my place is set back from the other apartments, and the light by the sidewalk only works at random, so it's often really dark.  If somebody comes by, they'll probably get half the bag of whatever I'm giving.  It's usually not real great - dollar store hard candy this year.

Just spit in their face, it would be more honest.

Kids get a pass, teens need to be getting high at the troubled friends father in laws house, adults no longer care and can have costume parties because they are no longer too cool to care.

Reminds me, I'm out of razors and edibles.
