I applied for it back when i had to call the domestic violence hotline to get me and my daughter out of the house. i never heard back then got a letter this month saying they were giving me a ton of money, which is great and all, but really i just dont need it any more. i did what i had to to get on my feet without welfare. i did use a dv shelter for 2 nights, and was going to be transfered elsewhere but someone who was still in the dv situation (I had been removed already) needed a place so they took her and put me out. but thats not my point
my point is, i went yesterday to cancel my welfare, first time ive walked into the welfare office in my life and O..M...GGG... ive never seen the sort of people who were in there before in my life. one lady had a water bottle but ill bet it was filled with liquor cause she was SOOOO drunk she stunk and she was a mess.
another lady was HUGE pregnant but no proof of pregnancy with 3 SMALL children with her, all different (one looked chinese, one looked black, one was white.. mom was black. so um.. i mean i wont jump to conclusions but it really makes you want to.
a man was on the phone with his case worker talking about how he needs more welfare because since he recovered from his last injury he thinks hes hurt again cause ummmm my back hurts and i uhhh hurt my knee... very strange
a young man in a full old army uniform (the old design they dont have any more) and a marine pack, and a guiter didnt have proof of address because he was homeless so they couldnt help him
a woman with nails and hair all done up, a blinged out purse and an iphone, her small child had an iPAD
seriously. wtf is going on
