Mom with a fear of Halloween willing to pay $65 an hour for a trick or treating professional
Taking your kids out trick or treating on Halloween can be fun for some folks, and a chore for others, but for one mother in the UK it’s an absolute nightmare so she’s ready to farm out the job.
A single mother recently took out an ad on the nanny finder site Childcare.co.uk, looking to pay someone to take her kids out trick or treating. It’s not that the woman is too busy, or simply doesn’t want to go with her kids...she’s simply terrified of Halloween.
The woman writes that she suffers from social anxiety, noting she gets “very scared at Halloween because of the costumes and speaking to strangers to ask for sweets for the kids.” She tried to find someone she knows to take her three kids out, but after failing decided to hire someone.
And she’s paying pretty well. The ad seeks someone to help get her kids into their costumes and take them out from 4pm to 8pm on October 31st, with the pay at $65 an hour.

The beer company provides drinking water after Hurricane Michael.
While communities start picking up the pieces in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael, Anheuser-Busch will be sending over 300,000 cans of drinking water to those in need. The beer maker shut down production on some beer lines for its emergency drinking water donation program, sending truckloads of cans of water to hard hit areas in Florida and Georgia.
Anheuser-Busch has been working with the American Red Cross to provide water after disasters since 1988 and say they’ve provided nearly 80-million cans of water with their partners over the years.
"This program is among the best that we do at Anheuser-Busch," says vice president of community affairs Bill Bradley. "Anheuser-Busch has always thought that it's important to help out those in need, particularly here in the United States, particularly in the areas where we live and work."
