"Can I have a big slam, well how about the pop you have in the fridge? That way you save a little money?"
"Well its my money"
"Yes it is, but I thought you wanted to save your money for exersise class?"
"ITS MY MONEY!, I have food stamps I'm getting a big slam!"
"Why are you mad at me"
"X I'm not mad at you, I'm just trying to help you save the money you talked about. You don't have much left in food stamps and its only the 15th, remeber last month you didn't have much real food left because you bought snacks with your fs?"
"Well its my money".
I dropped it after that. We have issues with her(and some staff encouraging) spending her fs on snack foods and liters of soda. She does have other money but its for bills, medical needs, and her exxtras. Last month she owed 3 different places money, her people first dues, her exersise class(because they keep taking her without money) and her water arobics class. Then at the end of the month we(the house hold corrdinator and I) are trying to figure out meals for her, then using her other. Money for food, she then gets mad because she gets less spending money.
Its a stress I can't do right now. You all have been so helpful in your responses to my posts. Its nice to have encouragement!
