I'm so goddamn angry!!! PA judgement.

I was at costco and was at the check out line. A lady behind ne was saying how cute my kids are and how twins are a handfull and blah blah. I'm checking out and ran my foodstamps card. Apparently costco does not take food stamps. The lady behind the counter said omg what's ebt? I say it's foodstamps and the lady behind me starts busting up laughing. I run my debit card and run out. I'm so angry. How freaking rude. Has anyone else ever been judged by using food stamps? I never got looks or felt emberassed until that bitc*

  • I used to get looks from people when i used my food stamps and i still have a full time job. Sometimes you need help that is why it is there. You do not need to explain yourself to any one.

  • I should have left but I drove 20 minutes to get their awesome brand of diapers that are 236 for 40 bucks. And I had a coupon that expired that week lol. I was so emberassed!! I should have turned to her and been like, "my husband is dead and I have no help. I'd like to see you deal without help from the govt ". Of course that's not true but she was so quick to judge

  • how do you know she wasn't laughing at the ignorant cashier? she of all people should've known what your card was...if they don't accept them, she should know that, too.

  • Thats what I was just thinking.  She could've been laughing at the cashier.  I would have laughed, not at you but at the cashier.

  • Sam's Club doesnt take EBT either in case anyone is wondering. I used to work there. I cant believe the cashier wouldnt know what it was. I am pretty sure you are not the only person whose tried to use it there not knowing! I think she was a bit dense!
