Well now I can correctly moonwalk away from uncomfortable situations
Because everyone deserves to know how to do a mean moonwalk.

You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
Okay, you know what. As a cashier for SEVEN YEARS, let me explain you a thing.
People DO buy non food with food stamps.
- They sell their food stamps for cash
- They use their food stamps on food then RETURN the food for a cash refund
- They buy cases of pop for around $6-7, to pour the pop out in the parking lot, then return the cans ten cents each
Every fucking day at least ONE PERSON would ask (demand) me if I would use their stamps card to get things they are not allowed.
"Just help me out"
"Don’t be a bitch, it doesn’t matter"
"I just need ONE pack of cigarettes"
No one ever asked for soap, or cat food. They wanted baked cakes. Cigs. Chew. Rolling papers. BEER!
I would see parents give their kids the card to get things for dinner, or snacks, for sleep overs. Never mind that they spend $40 on garbage.
People would bring their friends or other family members and buy them things. As payment for one thing or another they’d done for em.
Of all my customers who were on EBT, only a very small amount of them were actually trying to better themselves. Going to school, or getting training for something. Everyone else acted entitled, ungrateful. Handing me cards, unsigned, and totally snapped in half. They didn’t give a fuck. Didn’t shower. Didn’t clean their clothes. Fuck. Half of them didn’t even get out of their pajamas. They stomp into the store, ask us to sign their ‘work search’ paperwork and have no intention what so ever to become self efficient.
So forgive me if I’m fucking angry.
I live in a small town, just over 1,000 people. We’re all farmers, and antiquers. Those who work, work themselves to the bone. Everyone else, are just bleeding the county dry. Hitting up the churches, and community centers for food and goods. Constantly begging for hand outs. But no one wants to work for it.
Are there people scraping together, trying to make it work? Good honest people who deserve help? Absolutely. And I saw that too. But no where NEAR the amount of lousy fucks that abused the system.
So before you think these stories are fakes, or blown out of proportion. Ask a fucking cashier. Ask them what they see. Who their customers are.
Look at those eyes…
So filled with hope….
Remind myself everyday
