I went to meet the principal at my son's school, when I got the letter it mentioned the fact that school supplies would be provided to families that needed them.
So, meeting day came and I went, when I arrived to the school I saw an area with a huge amount of people in line, there it was the principal giving backpacks and school supplies, I am all for free stuff (who doesn't??) but when you don't really need it why being greedy?? The reason why I felt embarrassed was because all the people in line were hispanic dressed in very nice clothes with kids dressed in brand clothes and when the principal stepped down to talk to some parents including me what happened next was extremely shameful, some parents went like piranhas over the school supplies, taking more than they should while other families waiting in line started complaining and yelling.
The worst part was hearing two people talking among themselves who probably assumed I didn't speak english saying: And they wonder why we don't want them here? I just looked at them and said not all hispanics are like that and walked away.
I am all for free stuff but when other people really need it why taking it away from them? Why acting like you need handouts when you really don't? Uggggghhhh, vent over.
