Response to Flying Squirrel (Reply #32)

57. I have never thought those that receive help were "sponging off the system."

Anyone who would say that hasn't got a clue as to why social programs were put into place or how they benefit all of us.They help to create a healthy society and that is beneficial to all of us. So many are worried that a few are gaming the system or buying something too expensive considering their circumstances. I'm a checker in a grocery store and have never once questioned what someone purchases with their EBT card, frankly it is not my business. Nor do I treat them any different than my other customers (it is no one else's business how you pay for your purchase). I have had EBT customers apologize for having to use that card and my response is there is nothing to apologize for. This tells me some asshole in the past has made a comment that made them feel bad.

Good Luck finding a job.
