That's enough to feed my family of 5 for over 6 months....any way, what ticks me off to no end is when Tues. some one bought a $400 quick set pool and a Wii and guess what she used to pay for it?? A WELFARE CARD??? OMG!!!! The total was around $600 and on the reciept said she still had almost $900 left!! WHAT THE HELL!!!! That's $1,500 a month which means she's making $18,000 a year!!!! BY sitting on her fat a**!!!! I have three kids and work my a** off to keep them alive and don't even come close to $18,000 a year?My kids don't even have the $20 pool or any groceries in our home!! That's MESSED UP!! HAD TO VENT SORRY!!!Answer Question

You complain on here about it but I bet you didn't have the balls to say that to them. Grow up and mind your own biz.

Well..... for the short time that I was actually getting Child Support money, it came on a debit card. That money was for me to spend on the kids and if I wanted to buy them a new pool with THEIR child support money, then that is my right to do so....
You don't know why that money was on that card and you don't know the source of the funds.... and no one has to explain themselves, or their purchases to you.
You should mind your own business.

:04, I'm sure she didn't say it to them because she doesn't want to lose her job. I get where you're coming from op, I used to have to watch people swipe their welfare cards at the atm and then come to my counter and buy booze and cigarillos when I worked at a gas station. I'll never forget how mad I would get. I remember one time a woman did that, and as she was checking out her kid came up and asked her for a pack of crackers....and she told the kid she couln't afford crackers...with her congress vodka and cigarillo in hand. I don't care if people are on welfare, it's there for a reason. But COME ON!!!! Really? That's pretty rediculous.

OP here- I bet you are one of them who make more on WELFARE than those working 40+ hours a week and still are broke and can't feed their kids. I work my butt off for my kids to have what they need....maybe I should sit on my behind and live off the good, hard working people........No I have more respect for myself and others, sorry. Welfare is ok to recieve, but don't teach your kids that it's okay to abuse the system and good people for things you DO NOT need...pay some bills, buy some diapers, wipes, formula, clothes......it's not right and it never will be until someone makes a change.
Isn't it nice to assume things when you know NOTHING ? SEE that is your whole problem. I am a sahm because my hubby makes 70 g's a year. You just sound like a jealous hag because you can't afford those things. Read what the 2nd poster said and learn from it.
