how do you know if the 'nicer then yours' clothes they are wearing aren't gifts, or that the car they are driving at the food bank isn't barrowed? You really shouldn't pass judgement unless you know the whole story. Maybe they where given those nicer then yours clothes by a relative or a womens shelter because they fled an abbusive situation, or maybe their spouse died and people afre trying to help them get on their feet...you just never know...hopefully you are never in the situation that led them to the food bank, then maybe you wont be judged the way you are judging them. Here is a thought...BE NICE!!! Not everyone getting food stamps or going to the food bank is scamming the system...most arent. They really are in a bad way due to circumstance. I never thought that my husband would go to work one day, being doing his job, and get crushed by a 4000 lb piece of equipment causing him to be disabled, and have to have 6 major back surgeries...but it happened. changed everything about our lives...mainly our finances...so you just never know...
