How do you feel about families who double dip during the holidays?

For example, using more than one program to receive gifts. I know where I live they have cut down on this and have combined them so you can only use one program or pooled their resources. I think it is only fair so everyone gets something, instead of few getting a ton of stuff. I think it is kind of greedy for those families to do that.

  • I agree. Unless one program provides something for a certain age only (such as teens), then I think if you have small kids also then you should be able to apply to more than one program so all the kids will get something for Christmas.

  • Seriously? People do this? Precisely why I don't get involved in that stuff.

  • Not only do they do that. They also get things for their kids and take them back. And then use the refunds for beer and smokes. I worked at a store it used to make me so mad.
