Why is that a dumb thing to ask? Any other time of the year sure but at Halloween I think that's the expected response. It's unfortunate but I don't think it's other people's fault for not guessing it might be real.

It depends on where he lives.
My question would be whether or not he sees the same people all the other days, so they should recognize him and not make that mistake. If he lives/works in a city, then I can see that happening.
In a small town, however, one would expect that he sees the same people day-in and day-out.

59 - Wikipedia says Kingston upon Hull (OPs city) has a population density of 9,000 per square mile. I'd say that's a decently sized city (my town doesn't have 9,000 people total, and I still see a crapload of complete strangers everyday).

I'm pretty sure he wasn't asked by people who already know him...'facial burns from a car crash' isn't exactly something friends/acquaintances tend to forget...

Well, It's Halloween so you can't blame them. But this FML is awful. It's not even funny, like I feel really bad for OP. I'm sorry about your car accident and I know how much worse it is to have it pointed out like that. Try wearing a mask on Halloween so people don't mistake your face for an "elaborate face paint".

Well people can use liquid latex and a few other things to replicate it easily... And then face paint/make up over the latex. It's not always that easy to tell if it's real or not.

It's unfortunate that you are forced to remember the accident's effect on you every Halloween.

If you're a glass-half-full type of person, I'd suggest that you enter costume contests, to try and make the best of your situation. :)

Make the best of it OP. I have rheumatoid arthritis and it tends to jack up my knee and makes me limp. But instead of being sad about it I choose to be a zombie or something creepy for Halloween. I look like I'm in character and it perfects the costume. Don't let your problems bring you down :)

Total agreement. Dress as a firefighter, and go win a prize somewhere for Best Costume!
This sucks...but it's also the one day a year where your scars can be a plus. Don't miss the chance.
