no bucket.  they can dig a hole.

Quoting laranadtony:

Bread 

water

some hay to sleep on 

A bucket to shit in




A shovel costs more than a bucket and making them use a digging stick is cruel and inhumane.

They should have an exit plan. Seriously. If they have a solid exit plan than I don't care what they have otherwise. If they plan on making it a lifestyle than yeah, tin can and loin cloth. Lol

Thank you ! Someone who had a brain ! I completely agree.

Quoting BethanyJ:

There is no "allowed".  They can and should have everything they want.  As long as they meet the qualifications for assistance, then that's all the matters.  I don't give a rat's a** if they have an iphone, a brand new car, a million pets, a huge house, a bunch of kids, a credit card, a bank account, new nails/hair/jewelry/nice name brand clothes, new bikes, new shoes....it doesn't matter.  You never know anyone's situation from a simple glance, and than goodness it's none of anyone's business why someone is on PA.  PA is nowhere near as abused as people think, in fact, most PA users are off of PA after 7 months.  Some stay on longer, the the majority do not.  People on CM are woefully ignorant and sometimes downright idiotic when it comes to the subject of PA.

Those that really need it don't get it near as much as those that don't :/ me and dh are on it but he also works as much as he can. Hopefully when he is promoted then we won't need it. But my parents barely able to make ends meet with 5kids at home and y dad travels for work where he can find it and they don't qualify :( where is that fair?

I didn't say anything about a shovel.

They can use their standard issue plastic spork.
