Does anyone believe in paying for their own food and paying for their child formula?

I was in the store yesterday. I see a women with 2 kids and the kids was so dirty. the older child was in dirty clothes and no shoe. I was behind her in the line. She paid for the formula with WIC and handed the clerk a food stamp card. are you kidding me,

  • I guess you have no idea what it's like to lose your job or home, or worse.

  • Yes I do and if I couldn't then I would NOT be ashamed to use WIC or PA. Unless you personally know their situation, you shouldn't judge

  • Have you no compassion?

    Some women don't have it all, and you are no better than the moms who CAN'T afford all that you have.
    Go do some charity work with womens shelters, or simply stop to talk to the moms who you are so offended by and you might learn to be more understanding.

    Be thankful for what you have and don't look down upon those who NEED help.

  • do you kno her situation? my man didn't have a job for 8 months, our family had to help us pay our bills. we have FS and wic still because even though he has a job its only 7.55 a hr. but at least we can pay our own rent and bills but we couldn't make it without the FS and WIC
