Anyone that has dealt with the local food stamp/Medicaid office, what do you think of it?

I think the office is a wonderful place. The floors are clean and not sticky like other places in the burg. The chairs are comfortable and you have a nice view of the parking lot from the windows.

I think it's a very nice clean establishment and they show a lot of professionalism. They have some very nice people working there. Which is rare with all of the stuff they deal with on a daily basis. I got laid off a few years ago and was approved Medicaid because I was pregnant and I had to go sign some papers, when I went in, some poor woman was getting cussed out by some outrageous idiot because she got denied food stamps because she made too much money. They had to have an officer come remove the lady. It was ridiculous! I felt so bad for the people that worked there, but they kept their cool and were very very polite.

I ask because I have been in there several times over the last couple of months helping my grandmother and it seems there is always someone mad and yelling at the ladies up there. I have had great experiences with everyone I have talked to but I wondered if that was a rare occurrence based on others anger there.

Some of the workers are great & some of them suck. I've had papers lost on more than 1 occasion where I had to go up there again and have everything redone. It may not seem like a big deal, but when you're taking off work/school, or having to find someone to watch your children or sitting there with your children it is a hassle to have to do it more than on e because someone wasn't able to keep up with the paperwork. And also twice those missing papers made my fs's get canceled. Yes we bought food, but it was hard & knowing that that money could've gone to my kids instead sucked.

Oh and before anyone gets their panties in a bunch my husband has a full time job where he works 6 sometimes 7 days a week & I'm a full time student studying nursing. So we are not bums who live off the government, we are an average family that needs a little help with food every month.

Ive never been. Im not a leach. If you got off topix and got a job, you might not be a low life panhandler. Instead of robbing the tax payer, go stand out in front of walmart with a sign losers.

I do not not think that everyone on foodstamps are losers.Alot of people really need them.BUT,there are alot of people on them who are lazy,they take advantage of the system and they are perfectly able to work.If you really need them and deserve them because you are doing the best that you can do then dont worry about what someone says on topix but if you are lazy and dont want to work and take care of your own children then shame on you for being a bum.

What do I think of the food stamp office? I think they somehow manage to help a lot of folks who genuinely need help. They do this despite all those free loaders who actively milk the system so they can sit at home all day while the rest of us work.
I'm not talking about single moms or those who can't find work. I'm talking about those who are capable of working, but refuse to.

Your exactly right my wife goes to school works a full time good paying job and manages to run 2 kids to their sporting events 5 days out of the week so there is no excuse. Those folks holding signs in front of Wal mart won't get a dime from me there is plenty of farm work to do out there and it don't pay to bad at least you wouldn't have to stand with a sign. Hell if you wanna hold a sign get a job at little Caesars
