another food stamp misuse gripe!!

i work at a food lion grocery store and i just cant believe some of the things i see people buying!! naturally it is most busy during the first week or so due to food stamps comin in. but this one chick really blew me away... she bought over $60 worth of little debbie cakes, soda, ice cream, etc n the only actual food she bought was chef boyardee! i mean really it pisses me off bc i have food stamps n i barely buy that crap!!! my kids snack on sugar free pudding/yogurt, fruit snacks, apple sauce n raisins/bananas! maybe some ppl should be taught how to feed their kids!

  • Unfortunately junk food is consumable so it's ok to buy it with FS. I would be nice if they would buy fresh fruit and vegetables but we can only tell them that it's healthier for them. If they don't choose to accept that advice then we can't make them. Sad.

  • Really though, whenever people buy those things they end up getting less...but really what is it any of your business, if they want their kids to be fat and have bad teeth it is their own business. I think you would get pissed off if they tried to tell you not to buy your favorite items? I think you would. Mind your own.

  • I always think its funny when people take the time to write "its not any of your business" my question is why is it your business to tell them that its not their business. I hope that made sense.
