Here's What This Mother Did When She Found Out A Family Had Left A Bowl Of Candy Out (Video)

An unidentified family left candy on their porch this past Halloween for trick-or-treaters to help themselves – on the honor system – and set-up a camera to record how it went. As shared on Reddit, things were going off without a hitch – until this mom showed up.

The video presents an interesting social experiment for an age-old question: What would you do if you thought no one was watching? As we see in the early part of the video, the vast majority of trick-or-treaters followed the request to help themselves, but be considerate and don’t overdo it. Most of the kids helped themselves to a piece or two before moving along to the next house, but the good manners and consideration would soon come to an end.

It was not an exuberant child or a mischievous teen that brought an end to things either, but rather an adult female decked out in her costume. The children the woman was with happened upon the house and honored the request to help themselves within reason, but the unidentified woman wasn’t having any of it.

She proceeded to clean out all of the remaining candy, and even seemed to be encouraging the children she was with to help her. Comments on the woman’s actions and the example she set have helped to properly place her tastelessness in perspective.
