Hypothetical situation...

You are walking into Walmart with your kids and granny. As you get to the doors a male stranger asks you if you want to buy foodstamps.

What do you do?


I was walking with two of my kids, plus two kids I was taking care of whos parents are addicts and an 84 year old granny.

I walked into the store and told the nearest worker. When I left the store 20 minutes later, his stuff was all sitting next to the door where he was and he was no where around, I am guessing they were talking to him.

The parents of the kids I was watching pull that kind of shit all the time and their kids suffer. At that moment, I could not let another parent do that kind of shit and their kids suffer.

I think food stamps should stop completely. Period.

I would ignore him. I don't see what good turning him into the store would be. They probably don't give a shit. I would never buy fs.

So for those voting and not responding, why would you ignore it?

I'd ignore him because it's fraud. And if you have any type of assistance you'd lose yours too

I would ignore it. It has nothing to do with me. I am not the food stamp police.

None those would apply.

I would tell him no thank you and move on with my day.

How do you buy food stamps now a days? Aren't they on a card with said persons name on it? An yes I know rarely does a cashier ask for ID.
