One day I will be able to afford that Samsung Galaxy III like the chick in the corner store with the fresh weave and ebt card!! *sighs*

SOMEONE POSTED THIS ON FB

THAT IS VERY JUDGEMENTAL & MOST OF YOU ALL THINK LIKE THIS.... 1) HOW DO YOU KNOW IT WASN'T A GIFT?
2) HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT WASN'T SOMEONE ELSE'S CARD BEING USED?
3) SINCE WHEN WAS IT ILLEGAL FOR PPL IN NEED TO HAVE ANYTHING NICE?

I WORK, JUST GOT MY FS BACK AFTER A YR 1/2 OF NOT HAVING THEM. I HAVE A NICE NEW PHONE (MY MOTHER GOT ME) MY KIDS HAVE LOTS OF NICE CLOTHES & SHOES THAT I BUY WITH NO HELP FROM ANYONE & I STILL WEAR CLOTHES FROM 2 YRS AGO & OCCASIONALLY BUY NEW THINGS HERE & THERE BCUZ I CHOOSE TO MAKE SURE MY KIDS LOOK GOOD & DO FUN THINGS LIKE ANYONE ELSE. I HAVE A QUEEN SIZE PILLOWTOP BED (XMAS GIFT FROM MY GMA) MOST OF MY TATS I PAID FOR... I DESERVE TO HAVE WHAT I WANT LIKE ANYONE ELSE THAT'S WHAT I WORK FOR.... EVERYONE WITH AN EBT CARD ISN'T JOBLESS, LAZY OR ABUSING THE SYSTEM

THAT SHIT JUST IRRITATES ME & MAKES ME LAUGH AT THE SAME TIME

NO ONE DESERVES NICE THING! You work for them and your number one priority is food, shelter, electricity. If you can't provide for those things then you shouldn't have the extra luxuries that come from working hard. If you don't have the means to provide then no, you don't get to do like everyone else...you know, like people who have a budget and don't have food stamps/housing assistance/cash assistance/etc.

It's SO annoying, even when I wasn't receiving them I was irritated by it. You don't know anyone's personal situation to judge & be so angry about it. Like ppl are supposed to just allow their kids to be hungry as smh

I used to be on fs && I have an iPhone 4, I don't pay the bill for it and I didn't pay for it. Some ppl need to mind their own damn business and lives. Even while getting fs I worked my ass off the PA is set up to help those who are in need of it when times get hard or they are doing their best to make it by and can't (I'm getting my education and my husband works 2 jobs so we don't qualify now) but as long as they aren't being abused or being used long term to support your family, why not have nice shit? We live in a society that judges you based on the technology you use, and smart phones come in serious use these days just saying....

 You're singing to the choir, most people can name ten that collect welfare and shouldn't.  The system has way more abusers now than actual users and I can't wait until it all goes away!
