Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Nearly paid for a mom's groceries... till I saw what she was buying

Posted by   + Show Post

I was at the self pay ringing up at the same time as another mom.  I was alone and she was only a few feet away so I could hear her conversation with her kids.  They were all so excited to get home because they were hungry, hadnt eaten all day.  The conversation got alarmed and the mom was saying her card wasnt working.  I could tell she needed the food and she didnt know what to do.  She was starting to walk out without her food and I was turning around to offer to pay and then I noticed the packed bags, they are clear so I could see they were filled with  chips, soda and candy.  Not one veggie or fruit. 

I decided they didnt need my help after all.

Dont you think you could have offered to buy them something you approved of...I would have helped them out hungry children tug on my heart strings. As long as she wasn't buying booze and tobacco.

I dont think there is a point in arguing with her.  She isnt capable of saying, "I was wrong, eggs are in the protein category."  I think its a low gene pool situation.  Though I do have to lol at her "we dont eat carbs" comment.  Im wondering what is in that category in her mind.  Nuts and meats?

Quoting MamasaurusPrime:

They're not fighting with me, they're just being twats lmao.

Quoting Anonymous:

I think they are fighting with you because you are saying eggs are full of carbs and saying they are just as bad as chips and candy.

But the fact is that  you are wrong. I have been a nutritionalist within social services for over ten years. Eggs are in fact a good source of protien and do not have anywhere close to the amount of carbohydrates that are found in potato chips. They are not considered CARB foods as you are assuming they are. So unfortunetly you are showing that you are ignorant about the nutritional facts conserning eggs. The first lady you started fighting with was fairly correct. \

Yes, ham is usually salty depending on how it is prepared. But can have less sodium than what would be found in the soda and chip combination.  

Quoting MamasaurusPrime:

Egg white is full of carbs. I only ate eggs every other day when I was pregnant, and I don't even care for ham. it's too salty, which, when you're a diabetic while pregnant, you also have to watch your salt intake.

She's stupid because of her attitude if it's not for the fucking eggs and ham lmfao. They ARE carb foods, and I don't know why it's so important to argue over them lmao. I think it's hilarious. She thinks I'm stupid too, but at least I would pay for groceries, no matter what was in the cart. :)

Quoting Anonymous:

the comment about her being rude and uncaring had nothing to do with her fighting about the eggs and ham. Although, I don't agree with her choice of not helping, She is NOT UNINTELLIGENT in this case= Eggs and Ham do NOT have carbs. They are protein foods. Diabetics have to watch carbohydrates and if you were diabetic then you were allowed to eat ham and eggs. 

Quoting MamasaurusPrime:

Ikr? She's rude, uncaring AND unintelligent! She's been arguing with me all morning about eggs and ham lol. She won't buy this poor woman groceries but will feed her kids heart attack.

Quoting Anonymous:

I'm glad you are proud of being rude and uncaring.



I often care too much.



There was an elderly lady at the store the other day. Her bank card was denied. So she paid with food stamps, but the food stamps wouldn't cover her cigarettes. She had no money. She only owed just over $5.



It was a scene for her trying to get her stuff paid for. I was 3 people back from her. I felt horrible for her. I walked up to the register and handed the cashier $6, then I got back in line.



I know cigarettes are horrible for you. I don't smoke. So what. I felt sad inside for this old lady.

What's your SN? Are you too afraid to call me an idiot under it or what?

Ahhh, I get it. Don't wanna get reported because you're mad over eggs. LMAO.

When I was 16 I worked at Winn Dixie and have helped several individuals pay the remainder of their grocery bill while I was checking them out, usually it was just a couple of dollars but it still helped them. But I didn't and to this day still do not mind helping others out. Karma comes around.

The gene pool fucked up when you were conceived.

Your genes failed to give you a working brain and a working heart.

LOL! That would be an awesome spin off. Mainly because people cant admit they are wrong. I even saw a nutrition lady write her and she didn't respond. She must have looked it up and saw she was wrong. 

she really should show her pedi... maybe they could send her to a food class!

Quoting NDADanceMom:

Im not worked up im finding it amusing that you are so stupid.  LOL

Eggs are healthy.  So is ham, in moderation most foods are healthy.  Eggs are not greasy nor carby.  they are a healthy choice for diabetics.  Holy shit lady im amazed your kids are alive and you are able to nourish them properly!!!  You should print this out and show your pediatrician.  She may help you with some meal planning.  

Im tempted to spin off my own post to LOL with everyone else at how ignorant you are.   You are super fun! 

Quoting MamasaurusPrime:

LOL dont get so worked up over my reply, or youll be a mother with high blood pressure issues.

Relax mom, i know eggs and ham are bad for diabetics. I had to cut out greasy carby food when I was pregnant. I had gestational diabetes.

All this because of eggs and ham lmfao. Seriously?


Quoting NDADanceMom:

are you on drugs or something?

I ignored the first stupid post but then you bashed her like she was ignorant.  It was goofy.

I know not from google but from being a mother to 2  type 1 diabetic kids for 17 years.  I know the carbs in nearly every food on earth just because it means life or death to my kids.  Nut job... here is a tip, dont be dumb.  if someone tells you some facts, dont argue unless you actually know.  

Quoting MamasaurusPrime:

Lol Ok, whatever you say. Google is telling you that eggs and ham is hardly carby? Wow. What's next? You're gonna wiki something like when does life begin and tell me because Wikipedia told you so?

Kay. I get it.

Ps - why are you even trying to argue something that was active a month ago? LOL happy hour of power for drama starts early on Wednesday's, I see.

I can't blame the OP for not helping.

Quoting doodlebut:

She was probably buying crap food cause that's all she could afford. I never knew that helping people came with stipulations based on your approval. Either help or don't, but leave your preferences out of it.

Good for you for being stuck up.
