They should have one separate line for people that are on food stamps or wick these people buy all this crap get it for free and make people who go out and work for a living wait in line. If we dont want to do separate lines then they should have to get out of line and go to the back if a working person who earns his keep in this world come into line

SERIOUSLY! I have NOTHING against people who NEED assistance but like the person above said, I worked at a grocery store and you really wouldn't believe what they buy!! Not to mention the fact that 99.9% of their benefit cards DON'T WORK so you have to type in a 16 digit number in TWICE! It's RIDICULOUS!!! WIC is even worse!! You can get FIRED from Walmart for "changing numbers on checks" aka correcting your own mistake. Also, they don't even get what they are SUPPOSED to buy and then ARGUE with you when you tell them because "the last person let me get it"...well ya know what? If you want those things so effing badly, why don't you get a legit job...or STOP HAVING KIDS!!!!!

Oh, and I also love how most of them are so scummy that they like to call their children "a**holes" and "little b*tches" when they are standing in line.

As someone who is on WIC and works full time as a computer programmer. I disagree. I dont have food stamps i do work for a living but i needed alittle help for my kids to be able to eat. especially when it come to formula for a baby its $15 a can. I didnt have Wic for my first son but i do now becuas e I AM A SINGLE WORKING MOTHER. Some people dont understand WIC is for low income family to help put food on the table. and maybe you should know your facts before writing about people you dont know. I am not a person who gets things i am not suppose to get i get what i am allowed and get what my kids can eat. so maybe there are people out there should get jobs but some people are on the program that really need the help with good jobs just dont make enough to pay for all the food to provide there kids.

Personally, I don't knock people that NEED it. My comment is to the scummy people that take advantage of it. But it is a pain in the ass (just from personal experience of working as a cashier) to cash people out with WIC or food stamps because MOST of the people don't get the things that they are SUPPOSED to. People buy a bunch of CRAP for their kids to eat, or really expensive foods like seafood and steaks so that the PARENTS can be happy...and it sounds like you just wanna feed your kids so I'm sure you give them HEALTHY food.

WIC dictates what you can buy, milk cheese, eggs, juice and beans. This is not crap. It is healthy food that some people that do work for a living need a little extra help in buying. My job does not offer any sort fo benefits, so even though I work full time, I do not get paid "maternity leave", and I dont even get offered health insurance. I have elected to receive Medicaid benefits and WIC to be a responsible and healthy mother. Should I just not ever go to a Dr cause I dont have insurance? And should I only eat off the dollar menu at McDonalds because thats what is in my budget? Please dont judge EVERYONE and lump ALL in one single category. I am not a scumbag, and I own my own home, my own car, work full time, and need a little help buying milk and cheese. I dont think that should make you have the right to jump ahead of me in line, or make me go to a segregated register.

I couldnt agree more....esp. the non-english speaking people - who cant read let alone speak the language...

I think that the wic people should DEFINATELY go in their own line - esp. since they have to cash out EACH CHECK SEPARATELY!....

I have said this all along!

I disagree with the Agreed person just because we have to cash each check separately doesnt mean we have to go to a different line. I acatually try to go once a month and go after 9pm so i dont have to bother other people cashing out. Now some people dont understand just cause were forced to do something such as cash out each check separately doesnt mean we feel good about doing it. A lot of times it would take us less time if the employee's new what they were doing at the store. I have had one person cash me out really fast no problem and there other people that stare at the check like its forgien and it takes them 20mins per check thats not our fault thats the people working there. Some of us need to put food on our table some home. some people dont get it but we are just trying to service just like everyone else. and we feel bad enough have to cash out like we do why would you want to make us feel like were an out cast even more just cause we seek a little help for our kids.

I wish I had the kind of money to get anything and everything I wanted like the people who are complaining about these programs. Clearly you all have so much money and the increase in cost of living is not affecting you at all. I work a full time job, have my own home and my own car. I am a single mother now. It's not so easy to do it all. Don't judge everyone bc of certain people you see at the stores buying whatever they want on their food stamps. Does that irritate me? Absolutely. There are plenty of ppl who aren't working and eat better than me And my kids. And bc of my income from my full time job I don't qualify for anything except WIC. Don't rag on ppl who need the assistance. There are ppl who do take care of their kids and don't take advantage of the system. And just like its annoying to all you who are complaining, it no picnic to us who have to sit there and get your dirty looks and looking at us like we are just freeloading.

I do not understand....even the people on here who say they are on WIC...admit that it is annoying they have to cash checks seperately. Admit they do not feel good about it. Admit they get dirty looks from others on line who are not on assistance. Admit that not all the cashiers are efficient with handling WIC checks and benefit cards.
So then why would it be a problem to have a seperate line -atleast during busy hours - for those on assistance that require more time and a cashiers more specailized knowledge how to deal with it?

Not all people can breast feed. And we are talking about an innocent baby. I am not talking about the girl on this forum but I know allot of people that if they breast fed I would probably go mentally insane. I wouldn't want a drug addict to breast feed and I believe those programs are out there in the interest of the children not in the interesst of the adult. Some people are truely good people and life handed them a bad hand and while they are trying to sort their cards out they need help. You should be happy that the kids aren't going to sleep hungry. I am happy that kids can get help like that and have a chance to get food. My daughter has had friends who didn't eat much over the weekends and school breaks. It is sad.
