At the grocery store today and overheard a couple talking about government assistance. The young lady "oh yeah, that's great!! and then we can get food stamps and all that other stuff! Then maybe we can save and go to Sea World for your birthday too!" At first I thought she was being sarcastic but when I looked at her she was totally serious. Why would you WANT to be on government assistance? I've been on it- I hated it! Aside from all the hoopes you have to jump through just to get any, you also have to reapply every six months.
Mostly it made me sad that someone's aspirations are to get assistance. Sigh.
ok, I'm done.
