 why do people get so mad when they hear someone say they are on PA or are getting EIC on their tax return. . Why do some people go out of their way to find out if someone is using food stamp to buy their food with. I mean like looking into people carts and watching how they pay.

I read about 5 post sometimes more a day concerning PA or EIC tax return. It like you women hate people who get any type of help, it is like you (general) think anyone getting is help is scum of the earth.

 

I know this beating a deadhorse.

I'm a cart snooper but I don't care how they pay for it. I like to see what others are buying and sometimes it reminds me of something else I need to grab

Because most people that earn everything they get don't like the concept of others getting everything for free.

My problem is that if you don't pay 10000 into your fed taxes you shouldn't get it back when you paid in 500.

Cause people donno how to mind their business, they need something to bitch about, they rather stress about other people's problems than focus and solve on their own...


yeah but I can see why a lot of people would be concerned with PA users because a lot of them rather live off the government than use it as a temp and try. But they get too out of hand and think that everyone on PA is doing that, that's where it just turns to bull.

most people who get pa get food stamp and medicaid, everything else they pay for and even though they are getting PA doesn't mean they are the scum of the earth, sometimes they just feel on hard times and are trying to dig themselves out of a hole.

No one needs to announce on the internet that they receive welfare. No one needs to be flashing their food stamp card around making a scene at the check out. If someone makes a bad choice and announces their financials to the world then they need to deal with the crap that comes with it.

If I had a food stamp card I'd quietly check out using the self check out. No one would know. Then again, I don't waive my debit card around for all to see either. I never understood it. The only time I have argued with a clerk about NSF is at the eye doctor. Apparently my bank gives you a $1000 per day transaction limit for "safety" and you have to call to get it lifted. And of course, you can't do that on Saturday after noon when the bank office is closed. :( Long story short, I gave up and settled on one pair of frames and came back another day for sunglasses.

Alot of people make a lifestyle of it. There are always gonna be people who fell on hard times for three months or so. Those aren't the people that cause the anger. It's the lifers.
