I'm used to getting occasional glares for using WIC checks, especially if it holds up the line.  But, today I forgot to put my rings back on after cleaning.  Not only did I gets loads more glares, I had one old man actually shake his head at me!  We have three tiny kids, give me a break.

I can agree! We don't get WIC checks its all on a card like using a visa. BUT I have noticed when I don't have my ring on the cashier always looks at my finger then at me weird When I have my ring the cashier looks and smiles.

Don't have kids you can't afford, married or not. it is an income based program.

 Three tiny kids and you need WIC, doesn't make you look too bright to the general public.  It probably wasn't the lack of wedding rings that caused the head shaking.

When we were on wic I never had problems like that. But am I the only one who always wears my wedding ring?

It's a supplemental nutrition program.  If you fall within the income guidelines, you are given checks to buy specific foods.  Are you in the US?

It stands for Women, Infant, and Children (I think). Its a program that provides some assistance on food & formula (if needed).

I used to get asked if my kids were going to drink all that milk. I just smiled and said no I feed it to my cats. Works like a charm lol.
