Even though I have a legitimate reason, I don't want anyone to see me using them.

I've never had them. I assume I'd be embarrassed.

I try to hold the card where people can't tell what it is.

I did too. Idk why really. We didn't get much, or for very long either.

O yeah, I get that. Especially the comments around here lol. I feel like if I was on food stamps everyone's eyes would be on my cart to make sure I wasn't buying steak or god forbid, candy. 

Of course, being only 24 and hauling 3 kids with me to the store I have a feeling everyone assumes I'm on the stamps anyway lol.
