Sounds like the person using the EBT card also had EBT cash benefits.
While I don't agree with using government money for cigarettes, it isn't against the law.

Yes but its good to see someone standing up for what's right. Just because it's not illegal doesn't make it right. I gave her $100 today!

She didn't just decline..she ran her mouth.

It's not her place to decide what a person does with their cash. She's a fucking cashier, that's it.

“Our employees cannot impose their own personal biases over these products and make decisions about what will and will not be sold to individual customers”

He was legally ALLOWED to purchase cigarettes. Whether anyone likes it or not.


I'm not going to reward an idiot for doing something she knew would get her fired. She was given the chance to keep her job if she would comply, she didn't, she's unemployed.

You pick and choose your battles. I don't think someone that obviously lacks the education to do better for herself and is only making minimum wage should have chosen that battle. She lost.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

Funny thing is her twitter feed was going crazy last night with people trying to get the link to donate money. Turns out it was just some random person that opened it in her name, she had nothing to do with it and will never see a penny of the cash. Someone just saw an opportunity to get people to give up their cash.

Please at least do a little research. The guy wasn't using foodstamps, he was using his money that is deposited on the same card in a different account, the food money is completely separate and cannot be used for anything but food at every store I've worked at, it just doesn't go through, you can't even get energy drinks at most places (rightly so, hopefully soda and chips are next)

He received his disability money on the other account on the card, he or one of his parents worked for that money and he is now living on it regardless of what you believe it's his to spend as he chooses. It's not government money, it's his or his parents social security money. If he wants to waste it on cancer leave the moron alone.

Scottsdale and I make an above average salary. I've been working hard for the same company for over fiver years, my precious job was the same thing. I do t have a college degree, but my peers all do. I just know what it takes to get ahead and I set my goals to achieve more. I could just go with the flow like everyone else, but I want to be able to make more for myself and my family. I know guys who work 4 jobs year round so they can pay for their kids school, work is there, it's just how willing you are to do it. With the current system they require a dependent state so this idea is primates from ever angle. This should not be something that we promote. Welfare shouldn't put you in a higher income than someone who works their but off all year. All the time I hear of these woman pulling in 6 figure incomes on welfare and other benefits. It's insane and needs to stop and people like myself are not going to back down on this whatever takes.

This isn't about the system. Clearly she only had a problem with it when a 20 yr old wanted to buy some Marlboros. She wasn't out pounding the pavement trying to get the system reformed, she wasn't writing officials, she wasn't doing anything. She had a pissy day and decided to get fresh with a customer in front of other customers knowing full well she was violating policy and denying someone a purchase that was completely legal.

This is about an employee thinking she's above the law, above company policy and allowing her personal feelings on something to interfere with her job. She has no legal right to deny that customer something he is legally allowed to purchase. It's that simple.

If she has a beef with how funds are being spent she can handle that outside of her job where she wont get fired. Her making a stand against his purchase didn't serve her well. She got fired, she'll probably end up milking the system. She's old, she's got no marketable skills.

She fucked herself, for nothing.

Let me add that I take issue with the welfare system. I've been very vocal on this forum about that, but again, that isn't what this is about.

When I worked there was much I didn't approve of but it was my job to carry out my duties in a certain manner and I knew that I either did it or I was out on my ass.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three.

Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

Re: Donation fund for the woman who declined the use of EBT food stamps for buying cigarettes and was fired!
...


I have a college education and am more than capable of pulling in a 6 figure income, and I did for years. I deserve what I WORKED for. I don't ask for handouts. I also don't believe some old bitch with an opinion on what is or isn't ok to purchase should have any authority of how the benefits are spent. It's NOT HER CALL. She didn't politely decline, she ran her mouth and brought other customers into it. She had no right.

So..how much do you make a year?

Where do YOU live?

Do you drive a moped?

You know nothing about any of the people posting in this thread. Just zip it, idiot.
 Quoting: Debauchery


Scottsdale and I make an above average salary. I've been working hard for the same company for over fiver years, my precious job was the same thing. I do t have a college degree, but my peers all do. I just know what it takes to get ahead and I set my goals to achieve more. I could just go with the flow like everyone else, but I want to be able to make more for myself and my family. I know guys who work 4 jobs year round so they can pay for their kids school, work is there, it's just how willing you are to do it. With the current system they require a dependent state so this idea is primates from ever angle. This should not be something that we promote. Welfare shouldn't put you in a higher income than someone who works their but off all year. All the time I hear of these woman pulling in 6 figure incomes on welfare and other benefits. It's insane and needs to stop and people like myself are not going to back down on this whatever takes.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 17553212


Noone makes 6 figures a year on welfare. Complete bullshit.
My brother lost a job he had for 14 years. Went through unemployment and a meager savings of 9000 dollars.
His home is now in foreclosure.
What does he get?
$210 per month in food stamps. Thats it. This 6 figure crap is a lir and utter bullshit. Prove me wrong.
 Quoting: Whitemike761


That's exactly what I was thinking.

It's impossible.

If you're on welfare you aren't making squat. If you're working and earning a large amount you're not going to be eligible for welfare.

I do not know who prepetuated that lie, but, its to keep you distracted while the middle class is sucked dry by banker bailouts.
The real question here is how many Mercedes were bought with banker bailout bonuses. The poor are not the problem

If the rich gave enuff to charity no one would work and then everyone would starve unless it was a fight to the finish by the meateaters and i think the reason some people are rich is why they can get rid of us small people but we cannot get rid of them which why they are rich for now. sockpuppet laff!

Re: Donation fund for the woman who declined the use of EBT food stamps for buying cigarettes and was fired!
This is STUPID.

A very poorly written story.

But it says this:


He handed her his EBT card.

“I said to him, ‘Do you think that the man in line behind you and the lady behind him want to buy you your cigarettes?’ And he said ‘Yes.’ Then he said, ‘Give me back my card.’ And I said, ‘Give me back my cigarettes.’”



First of all - NOWHERE does it say she refused - it just says that she was outspoken about him using the card for cigarettes, so he asked for the card back and she then asked for the cigarettes back.

BFD.

So her manager calls the gov and is told it's legal to use the card for cigarettes.

And the cashier GAVE NOTICE that she was quitting.


Then the guy's mother goes into the store and the cashier is outspoken, but there was no absolutely refusal to actually sell the cigarettes.

And then . . . some other guy comes in and the cashier tells him to "get a job".

Then she was fired.


WHAT THE HELL kind of story is this and why is everyone so upset about it?

I am 100% against ANYONE on welfare using money to buy beer, cigarettes, etc.

But this story is convoluted and makes very little sense - but more absurd than the story is the fact that people are actually GIVING money for this!!!


You don't know the exact story.
You don't know this woman.
You don't know who started the donation fund.
You don't know who will actually get the money.


Sheer lunacy in the world.

O'rly?

[link to nation.foxnews.com]

SHE SAYS RIGHT IN THE VIDEO SHE REFUSED THE CARD.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.
