slatestarscratchpad:

I am on call Halloween and will be spending the night at the hospital.

I am planning to put a bucket of candy out on a chair on my porch with a sign saying TAKE ONE.

Do you think people will steal all the candy? Do you think they will steal the bucket? Do you think they will steal the chair?

(if it matters, my neighborhood is somewhere between middle class and lower-middle-class)

I have had people steal double-handfuls of candy out of a bucket I was holding, while looking me in he eye, then run away, so, yes.
