  • I would simply say "If YOU want to purchase these for me, then feel free to poke your nose in my business"

  • Sorry ladies I think everyone needs to get over this. I understand that people need to mind their own business, and i know people have fallen on hard times so most people have a very good reason why they are on FS. Although there are many people that aren't on FS that can't buy half the things you can when it comes to food. Yes they have a pay check, although how do you know if it is really that much better then yours. What about the person that just misses the qualifying amount for FS and has to choose carefully what they buy so they can get all their bills paid and feed their kids.

    Nobody had a perfect life and I think you all need to relax a little because while the person making the comment has never walked in your shoes you have never walked in theirs.

  • I have no idea. But I would be polite. Being polite and nice makes them look wrong....not you.

  • No you've never walked in her shoes but neither are you trying. She's putting her two cents in which means she's butting into to something she has no place.
