We had less trick-or-treaters than expected this year, and I think I know at least one reason why: our doorbell’s battery is dead . . . I think. At least, it doesn’t work when we press it, as we found out when some friends stopped by, used the doorbell, then waited and waited before switching to knocking.
They thought our doorbell issue may be causing us to inadvertently snub the youth of America on their sugar quests. I removed the ringer from the front of the house, forcing future trick-or-treaters to knock for their sugar.
So what happens? The doorbell rings 5 minutes later! With no ringer! What’s up with that? did a ghost ring it?
Time for a new doorbell.
