food stamps is good. when food stamp money flow interupted. this is bad. this also causes badness ,liek walking out of kroger with something extra in your coat pockets. when you have nothing in yer wallet or fridge, and you see that your food stamp card registers zero dollars when it should be reloaded.and the visiting hours at the welfare agency are the same as your own work hours, so there is no way to clear this up, without taking time off work and looking like a complete shlamiel.
