pizza hut accepts ebt...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
As I'm turing onto my street, I see sign's in pizza huts grass saying " we now accept ebt " how lovely! Dh just lost his job after he gave them his two weeks, he doesn't start his next job for three, but we have enough saved and refuse to get any help. Its nice they can use tax dollars to get some fucking pizza though -___-

That's weird, 80% of the homeless around here are just prostitutes & crackheads. Guess that statistic varies by state & region. If they can walk half way across town in ass shorts & a bra smiling big enough to show their two teeth, they can walk behind a broom or something to work.
Hell our local grocery store has more mentally/physically disabled folks working than anything as bag boys, buggy pushers & cleaners. If they can do it the others should too.


Quoting thefiregoddess:

80% of homeless people are permanently disabled, 90% of those with mental health issues ranging from autism (like me) to paranoid schizophrenia.



I was homeless for six months... trust me on this. I used to think it was a bloated statistic until i saw it first hand.




Quoting Anonymous:

Ebt cards also are used for cash assistance & ssi here. So did it say foodstamps specifically or just ebt?





But it wouldn't surprise me being last year they were debating if they should allow hot meals to be purchased with F's. Because homeless people don't have a place to cook.


Dumbest thing I've heard. Instead of giving them food that some working people can't afford, give them a place to live & job to do. Help get them off F's. but that's not easy so it'll never happen.

I doubt it. I'm sure it gets abused, and I can't say I'd never get a burger with my EBT card even though I have a kitchen and can totally cook. I have hypoglycemia and sometimes I GOTTA eat! So I think it's a good program considering the hard times we have found ourselves in and the many unique situations people are in. Nothing will be perfect.

Is it up to the waitress, manager or who to validate they only buy enough for the disabled person or such?

I can already imagine old wino buying pizzas & burgers in exchange for boos lol


Quoting lalaboosh:

Calm down. That program is meant for those who can't cook and those who don't have a kitchen. Not people who are perfectly capable of making a meal at home.

Uh huh all homeless people are just saints facing a tough time. Puhlease!
I do believe some are just homeless be aide off uncontrollable circumstances but there's a lot that are just as happy to be drunk & homeless.


Quoting thefiregoddess:

If a disabled person blows their allotment on pizza that's their problem.



I've yet to meet a homeless alcoholic trading pizza for booze.

Where I live they have to cook the pizza half way so its not cooked all the way. But they can't just give a raw pizza to anyone.

The largest reason for homelessness is lack of affordable housing!

The second largest reason for homelessness is domestic violence.

The third largest reason for homelessness is disabled adults.

25-40% of homeless are vets.

Youth transitioning out of foster care also make up a large portion of the homeless population.

No what I'm saying is if they spend their food money to trade and have Nothing to eat... oh well.

I'm sympathetic to the homeless to a point.i met a few crackheads a couple alcoholics a heroin addict, and tons of non addicts that were homeless.

If you trade away the 50$ a month yo u get to eat no one really has sympathy unless you're trading it to get say antibiotics after an er visit.

I'm sure there's plenty of people addicts or not that will and would trade for whatever but that's their problem.

Its like if you wanna spend your stamps on a lobster dinner and you have nothing to eat the rest of the month.. that's your problem.


Besides people routinely sell and trade stamps anyways addicts or not. The only thing getting a pizza would do would be to increase the number of people who would buy your stamps.
