Halloweird

(I work at a bakery located in a mall. Since we’re considered a “family mall,” we have a lot of events for kids, like all day trick-or-treating on Halloween. My first Halloween, they have me handing out candy to long lines of waiting kids and parents. A mom and dad with their baby come up.)

Me: “Here you go!”

(I hand the baby a piece of candy and the mom snaps a picture. I smile and say goodbye while going back to handing out candy to the other children. A few minutes later they come back, gesturing towards their baby.)

Me: “Oh, ma’am, I can’t give out more than one…”

(They just smiled and nodded at me and didn’t say anything, just looking at me and then back at the kid. At that point, I was pretty sure they didn’t understand a word I was saying. Suddenly, they stuck the baby next to my head and the mom snapped another picture. They smiled and left, very excited. I guess I was baby’s first trick-or-treat. I like to think that in a few years when the little girl looks back, she’s going to have a good laugh at the confused look on my face.)
