My very rude, ghetto, bad food stamp experience. Kinda long, sorry:(
I want to make this very very clear first, i am on Food stamps myself. But I am getting cut off in a month bc I no longer qualify (thank god) . So i am not bashing anyone. This disturbed me.
My dh and i stopped at walmart to get my son who was with my brother. While we were there I picked up a bottle of water. My 2 year old was with us as well and she isnt good around people she doesn't know. Anyways Walmart, you know only ever has like 2 lines open, so the lines are going alllllll the way down to the apparel department. I went into the bathroom and my dh stayed in line. I get out and hes in another line. I guess they opened one. He looked extremely frustrated. I got into the line with him and I notice these to chicks one was younger and one was older (mother and daughter) they had cart loads of stuff. They were extremely rude to the cashier. The cashier asked if she could ring something up, it was a lunchable that she was opening (before paying for it) and giving it to her dd. The customer threw a fit, "di you think I am going to steal a stupid lunchable? here!" and threw it at her. I was shocked at the cashiers patience, I would have lost it. anyways it seemed to be about a half hour later, (the whole time my dd is crying her eyes out bc she didnt like the people behind us for some reason and we tried to move the cart out in front and those ladies refused to let us by) meanwhile, we have 1 thing to pay for. Now they are finally done, and she starts complaining about how her food stamps didnt cover everything and wanted to know what wasnt covered. She was demanding, and nasty about it. The cashier kept taking the receipts and looks and she said "idk miss, i cant tell, idk what is covered and what is not" Food stamps in my state covers just about everything, you know if something isnt covered, beer is like the only thing and hot foods.
I finally said loudly "ok this is enough, i am going to customer service' i grabbed out stuff and went up there to pay for it. My dh filled me in he says that when they opened the line, despite the fact he only had one thing, she took her cart and rammed it into my dhs cart (with my dd in it mind you) and cut in front of him, then she was complaining about everything and whatever.
Her mother shows up, rudely tells my dh to move out of her way. Apperently they got hot food, which isnt covered on fs, they tried to play the store out and get them for free. These are the food stamp/PA users people should be bashing.
