Got into car accident. Almost died. I got fucked up pretty badly, pregnant wife (7 months) and 3 year old daughter ok. Both wife and I out of work. Her company lays her off, mine says stay out as long as you can, because we're going to do the same as soon as you get back. So, I get Disability from State, but fuck it, I PAID for that out of my check.
It's not much. After paying bills and rent, we have about $60/week for food for all of us. Daughter asks for Trix cereal, haven't had it since we were hurt. I bring calculator to store, and I'm figuring everything out. We have $2 left over. Sorry kid, no cereal. Can't.
This fucking 'family', consisting old black woman, 3 sheboons, gaggle of fucking grandkids--and guess who was running all over the store--are loading up their cart with all sorts of shit; meats, cans of whatever, of course no vegetables or fruit, though. And, before you ask, no, no males ANYWHERE in the picture over 10 years old. So, they're literally not checking what's going into the cart. Just 'Gibs me dat'.
We go to checkout, they're ahead of us....and guess the fuck how they paid for it. It was hundreds of dollars of stuff. All by food coupons. No shame, no remorse. It was owed to them.
And I have to count fucking pennies. I will never forget having to tell my kid (and mind you, I'm wrapped in bandages, it's fucking HARD to move around), sorry honey. I don't have the money to get the only thing you wanted--and it wasn't like she asked for much. It was cereal. $3.50 and I don't have the dough.
20 years ago, and I'm still fucking hot about it. Fuck these pieces of shit.
