So if they did prey on kids I imagine they got payed back pretty often.
I had a similar tactic in college. I was an RA in a dorm and had front desk duty. I would call in a pizza for delivery and give a fake name and a room # that didn't exist. When the guy showed up and asked me to call the room #, I would tell him he was the victim of a prank. and would tell him I was sorry. As he walked away I would tell him I would take the pizza for a couple bucks and more often than not, I would get it. :mhcky21:
I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
