How do you know that the people who had those cards were not supporting a housefull of foster children? Or maybe the card belonged to a sick daughter with children and they were buying the groceries for her? Or maybe they bought the stamps at a 50% on the dollar rate from someone who really didin't need them? Let's not get overzealous in judging until you've walked a mile in someone elses shoes. Better yet if it pissed you off so much why didn't you just stop them and ask? They might have been more than happy to satisfy your curiosity. I myself have taken an ebt card into walmart and picked up a buggy full of groceries for a sick friend with children on foodstamps. The people behind me commented on my purchases and said they sure were glad they didn't have to pay for the groceries I had and I said I was too. I explained why they were for and what I was doing and I think they felt pretty awful for saying anything. Don't be too quick to judge who you see with a card it might not be what you think.
Give us a break, buying groceries for someone else? If they buy foodstamps, equals breaking the law. Using someone else's EBT card equals breaking the law. You stated some wild senerios there and they are hard to believe. Most people that I see using them are younger aged folks that looks like they could work in a sawmill. And big fat women that looks like they could do without for several weeks.

The problem I have with some people on assistance is the lack of ambition to try and get OFF assistance. I know many that are still in bed way after we all have been at work over half the day.They are not even up trying to keep their nasty house clean. Some don't even find time to take care of their kids. Somebody else has them. But yet, we tax payers are up and working since 6 and are paying for them to lay around. I don't know why our govt can't find them something to do to help pay for their free cardsÂ… kinda like prisoners. Have them pick up trash, clean up public places, cut grass, sweep yards, etc for all govt. owned buildings. They are getting paid for doing nothing. I bet we wouldn't have so many on assistance if they had to wok for it!!!!!!
I am sick and tired of lazy people who are eating away our tax dollars. WE need a change in the way assistance dollars are given and continued.
For all you know (you and all the other judgemental geniuses on here).... there are grandmothers raisig grandchildren who must receive assistance, there are foster parents helping unwanted children who must receive assistance, there are people shopping for home bound stroke, disabled, and elderly people that use their card for them..... Don't judge the person in front of you just because they're dressed nicer and are cleaner than you. You have NO idea what the situation is.... if you're so jealous, go apply. Take in some foster kids. Run errands for an elderly person. But make sure you do it in your sleeping pants and bedroom shoes so you won't be judged at the counter.
