Yep. You read that title right. I try my best not to get into conversations about food stamps and government assistance in mixed company because it NEVER turns out well. AT ALL. I know that there are people out there that really need government assistance. They get up and work hard at jobs that don’t get the job done financially. Those people need a little help. Hell, we all need a little help sometimes. What I have an issue with is people who know they only have .49 on their EBT card and run up and get $700 worth of groceries because of a glitch like it’s okay. So the day the machines went down, it was grocery day for everybody? And the cupboards were bare? Okay then. Then you get this tragedy in Memphis:
SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?! You don’t regret leaving a 2 and a 3 year old at home by themselves (though I am sure this is some sort of child endangerment), but you want to hurry up and get in the house to see if your purse made it because the food stamp card is in there?!?!?!?! WHAT?!?!?! No concern for two young lives, but I gotta get my benefits. This makes me sad. This is why I question things. I get mad because I (like many other people I know) work long hours at a stressful job that barely makes ends meet sometimes. Then we all know someone that has never worked or barely works that lives better than you with what i perceive to be the money missing from my check every 2 weeks. This is a problem to me. Help those who need it. I have no words.
