I shop at this Kroger. I am not on food stamps. I pay for my food with my own money. My tax money went toward paying for this woman's food stamps. When I buy luncheon meat I buy the Kroger prepackaged luncheon meat. I can not afford one of the brand names or the deli meats. So please tell me why this woman who is using my tax money thinks she deserves the deli meat? I stand behind the store manager 100%.

I also stand behind the store.

If she was trying to purchase products that were allowed with her food stamp card, there never would have been a problem.

I am not on food stamps or any other type of government handout. I work 40+ hours a week and so does my husband and we also buy the store brand products on most things just to save money and stay within our budget.

I'm so sick of these people on government assistance who feel they are entitled to everything. Then want to cry to the authorities or media if they don't get it.

Then they have to throw in her kidney problem just to gain sympathy. That still isn't a free ticket to items that she's not entitled to....But I guess she doesn't see it that way.

KUDOS to the Kroger's manager. Thank you for standing up for the working class and saying what EVERYONE who works and pays taxes (for her food stamps) wants to say to these people!! Good for you.

I need to clarify something to everybody--Food stamps are not a handout as it is called most of the time. Get fired and have NO income with no money for food until the food stamps come in. She should have known better but the store manager has no legal right to embarass her! Been there done that before too and it is called discrimination. Managers are supposed to be taught to handle problems without harming anyone emotionally---I know thats not the real world thinking but it is how it should be. I am sick of people talking bad about people that are on government assistance because you don't know about the health problems or any background of the person involved.
Speak lightly about not being on government assistance--it can happen to you in a second then what would YOU do??

The product she got WAS COVERED under food stamps. The manager made the mistake, and because of that, he humiliated her when she made that point.

You stand behind the store manager's humiliation of this women because why? He was wrong, and she was right but because she's poor she has no rights? Wow, go Romney/Ryan 2012!

This women and her family/job/Health situation are exactly why we have Food Stamps and government assistance. She has children, a husband killing himself to support them, and she is waiting for a Kidney transplant and does dialysis 12 hours a day.

Whats amazing is, this issue attracts the most ignorant and hateful pieces of s(&* this Country has to offer.

No David. Sliced meat from the deli is not allowed to be purchased with a food stamp card. She had meat sliced to order at the deli and the manager told her there was plenty of prepackaged meat that she could choose from. She went ballistic and demanded that she be given the deli meat for free. Just to shut her up, he agreed to let her do it.

Again, I have no problem that she was using food stamps. I realize that many decent people need temporary help and that's okay. What I have the problem with, is that she demanded items that weren't covered.

I have a problem with people with that "me, me, me" attitude. People who have that 'entitlement' mentality. I see people like this everyday and I'm sick of it. And when she didn't get her way, she throws her illness in there, just to win the bleeding heart Liberals over. Worked on you, didn't it?

If the manager hadn't said "Well excuse me that I work for a living and don't rely on food stamps like you", this would not be a story.

The story is not whether or not she was getting deli meat. The story is not whether or not the deli meat is covered under food stamps. The story is not whether or not she got belligerent.

The story is that the manager said ""Well excuse me that I work for a living and don't rely on food stamps like you".

If you defend this, shoot yourself in the face. You make the world a worse place to live, and there is no room for your kind here.

The woman needs a kidney, and the booger eaters of Topix are more than ready to post their idiocy. And yes, no doubt there's a Democrap or two trying to make the Republicans look worse, as if that spineless bunch needs any help.

But let's not forget the silver lining in all of this. Kroger offered the woman a 15 dollar(!!) gift card to come back, and that's the slap in the face that we all need to feel.

She's already getting all of her groceries for F R E E, even items she's not entitled to. What should they have offered her?
Of course a gift card is meaningless when everything is free anyway.
Unbelievable.

Romney said you must be kidding. Romney does not care about poor people. Remember, they are apart of the "47%" that are useless and not his concern...let her and her kids starve(bunch of moochers). Go Obama/Biden 2012!
