My husband and I have both worked since we were 18 years old... after we had kids ( a 4 year old daughter and twin 2 year old boys) we decided it was better ( and cheaper) than for me to keep working....
Well my husband lost his job this past fall... He got a temp. job and I started babysitting at home... we have enough for our bills and utilites but really nothing else... So we are now on food stamps until he is able to get a better job again...
We do not buy any extras or needs... and I was kind of upset because that meant my daughter had to quit dance class ( she loves it ) ... so my mom said she would pay for her dance class for us - which is $30/ month.
So now that my brothers "fiance" ( my parents are trying to talk him out of it because of several other reasons) ...heard about then doing this she is actually mad over it... and said that we need to stop "using the system" and that if we are actually decent people we would have my mom pay for our grocieries to get us off of food stamps, for for dance class...
I told her it isnt like my mom offered to either pay for groceries or dance class ...and that our circumstance is what food stamps were made for and that we are not using the system...I also told her she needs to shut her big trap!
what would you have said
