Yesterday at book club someone brought up the whole thing about "those people" who are using "our money" to buy steaks with their six kids with their nails done and cell phones again.
Nothing really pisses me off more than people who have way too much worrying about people who have way too little.
Like why would you be buying a steak if you are using an EBT card. Like why is it your freaking business if they are buying a steak? Maybe they saved up for a special occasion. Why do you care!
Also, that woman with six kids, how do you know they are all hers? Maybe she's got a few extras she's taken in. Someone actually said at book club "I stopped after one because I knew that was all I could afford". REALLY NOW.
I pay for my daughter's cell phone so that I can keep in touch with her. How do you know someone isn't doing that for them? Maybe they painted their own nails. Are you supposed to look like shit because you are down on your luck?
It just amazes me how people are so quick to judge. As someone who has used a "government card" while my husband was on disability and I was on unemployment it just chaps my hide.
Like lucky you that nothing has ever happened in your life to knock you down.
