WOW!!! OMG!!! Don't you hate doing Food Groceries at Walmart or the store of your preference. When you get to the register to pay this big ass cart full of food, instead of "Hi how are you maam" I get a "Will this be Foodstamps" Wait!!! "What did my forehead have a sign on that read, I am paying with government money, have no cash". Don't get me wrong..I dont have anything against ppl who receive it. Thats a wonderful help. Just hate to be labeled, as if only hispanics are the only ones utilizing foodstamps. Like we can't pay for our food groceries with cash. I do, and it's $400 monthly I gotta hand to these idiots who think like that...

It happen to me once at walmart. I love Minni Wheats, so one day I went to the store to get me a big ass bag of Minni Wheats and a gallon of milk.

The cashier says to me "ma'am, you need the smaller bag for WIC!" I go, "huh?"
"you cant use the WIC coupon for this size of bag. You're gonna have to pay for it, if you want this size!"

I said, "I don't get WIC coupons!! I intend to pay for these that's why I'm in line!!"

"oh..."

Idiot!

Wow, I would of replied with a smart ass remark. Why do they even ask, don't you pay like with a debit card when you pay with food stamps? So they shouldn't have to ask right? You just swipe the card like you would a debit right?

Ughhh that is so disrepectful and rude!!!! I get people asking me if my food will be paid with WIC checks too.  It could be that I always get milk and mini wheats like Lluvia!

I did once when I was at a gas station in the hood.

I was just passing by since I was thirsty and got a juice and a bag of Gardettos and the woman asked me that. I did feel a little insulted and looked around my environment and at myself. I'd like to think I dress pretty damn sharp and don't "look" like I'm on FS but eh. I got over it and forgot about it when I left the store.

She probably felt like an idiot after the tone I gave her.
