Most fascinating feud in the grocery store!

I'll keep this basic . Lady with food stamps is buying her groceries and gets very upset as something went wrong and her money didn't recycle today like it was supposed to.. She was upset but appropriate with the cashier as they were trying to figure out who to call etc.. She had a lot of groceries. Any way the women behind her happened to be a federal employee that works at a local scientific lab (WHOI) She completely loses it! Screaming at the women for not being grateful for the help as she isn't getting paid and she has a job etc.

They both had great points and really in the end both will feel bad as they weren't bad people. It ended with the police hauling off the federal employee because she started it and she was pretty vocal.

It was really sad to see but an interesting commentary on the way things are right now. We have many federal employees out if work in my immediate area from WHOI

Edit: the federal employee did not get arrested. It was a precautionary measure. When my husband returned home from work I told him what happened and who the parties were. He ended up calling the brother of the federal women, as he is friendly enough through work with him, to check on her. Apparently many things all happened at the same time and something just triggered her outburst. Her husband made contact with the food stank women to make amends. The federal lady apologized and explained the circumstances etc.. It apparently went well enough that the so ladies are going to go to lunch as they actually have common issues.

That's all I know but it sounds like something good came out of it.

The lady who scolded her had no right. I know many on here will agree with her though. You can't dare have one little problem if you receive assistance. Ever.

I'm sure anyone would be annoyed to put all of their food on the counter and find out their card isn't refilled when it was supposed to be. I mean, that's kind of a normal reaction and really has nothing to do with not being grateful.

 My dad and brother are working for free, they would never take it out on somebody else, no matter their circumstance.

The federal employee at least is going to get unemployment as well as her back pay once the shut down is over, so she is going to get paid twice. She really had no right to go off on someone who isn't as fortunate.

Totally unacceptable behaviour by the federal employee.

When I was on PA, I called before I went to the store...just in case there was a problem.

 Yeah, I can't stand those welfare losers either.  They obviously hauled off the wrong person.

That's what I do too. It sucks having to use assistance anyhow, I'd prefer to not have any issues that call more attention to the fact.
