No I haven't. We don't normally and have never needed them before but DH is going to be off work for 3 months and while he is trying to find work, we need them

Quoting Destinite:" Yep & I'd never be proud that I couldn't support my own child. "


There was no part of being proud we cannot fully 100 percent support this family. We make very little money, and when we did have a better income..we moved out, not thinking that one of us could possibly be without a job. Like I said, I just got out of this argument..I do not understand some peoples train of thought.



And to add, we are not on stamps yet. Just WIC.

Being proud and not being ashamed are two totally different things.



You're doing what you need to for your child. Don't let anyone give you shit for needing help.

Yeah. I got dirty looks at the WIC office for pulling out my huge ass smart phone. Bigger than the iphone. But my FIL pays the bill and I got it with my upgrade.

It is in poor taste to make a statement like that, though. It isn't my business or anyone else's business what your financial affairs consist of. I'm sure it is a defense mechansim from the negative view many people have about gov't assistance, but don't worry about it!If you need the help, you need it.
No one really knows another person's situation unless they live with them & see everything.

The girl is a waste of space for the way she is using the government and this girl is saying wow because it's hard to believe people are really like that

Okay i just wanted to make sure. That aint even the worst part she lets one of her "baby daddies(isnt really her sons dad because while on not even a month break up she cheated and got pregnant by the other guy)" live off of her when he aint on jail and his 5-6 friends too. They stayed at her apartment for two weeks straight and all she did was complain to me.

I don't look down on anyone b/c I could end up BEING in need of assistance.

This might be an unpopular opinion, but this is something I see a lot of problems with in my family. Just thought I'd share.



If you're on Food Stamps, but still paying for cable or internet, IMO you really don't need to be on Food Stamps.
