and this lady who dresses out around 250 is standing in front of me paying for her things. When she pays she uses a Vision card, I am thinking that should not be used for snacks.

Anyway I blow it off and pay for my stuff and leave. As I am walking to my truck she drives by me in a huge SUV with a set of rims and tires that all by themselfs would pay off my truck :#

Now maybe I am a hard ass but thats bullshit! If a person is so broke they need money from the poor box they should only buy things of need and damn sure not be driving a $50.000 Suv! Rant over it just pissed me off!

Wow.

People like this should be investigated before they are given food stamps.


Thats just criminal.

In her defense, Those rims could have been a gift from someone else?? Who knows??

my girlfriend works at aldi, some of the things she tells me about the people who use those cards would make me flip out. spending upwards of 150 bucks on snacks? so not only do i have to help you buy those snacks, but in 15 years when your children are diabetic i get to help with their medical bills. my favorite though, a lady came in and bought somehting like 100 dollars worth of meat. enough for the month right? wrong, she was having a bar b q.

In fairness, sometimes a person can lose their job and need food stamps while not wanting to sell their car. Dunno if that's the case here or not.

a vision card is a reloadable prepaid card....it's not a government hand out, it's a card people put their cash on.

we sell them all the time at radioshack.

Actually, Radio Shack is the perfect place for selling overpriced crap, so food stamps would fit right in.

I completely agree, Radioshack is complete shit. All the same Vision cards are for people who don't have bank accounts...not goverment handout cards.

David.s right. this isn'ta big deal people.

on the subject though, years ago when i worked at a grocer store in high schooo, i bagged $100 in groceries for a woman who used a combo of wic and food stamps to pay. asked me to help her out to her car... which was a year-old corvette.

she tried to tip me. i told her, snidely while eyeing the vette, 'no thanks. you're on government assistance. you probably need that money more than i do.'

I wonder what else I can get at Radio Shack that I don't know about. You go in there and they've got walls full of resistors and capacitors and weird wiring, and I figure that buried down on a bottom shelf somewhere they've got high-powered military lasers and invisibility cloaks and girl robots and all sorts of other stuff.

over priced crap mostly. Radioshack sucks so much. I can get like...30% off on product and I bought $0.00 worth of christmas presents there. It's horrible.

we only have 4 rows of drawers with parts. Everything else is cell phone accessories, ipod accessories, toys, random home entertainment things and various other crap.

I thought that about RS too. Then I went in there wanting antennas for my stereo... those FM and AM wire antennas... said they didn't sell them.

Must have needed the shelf space for more remote control cars or Tandys or something :spock:

yeah we have it for 39.99. Everything is expensive there. But people pay the difference to have sales associates hold there hand and explain everything to them. The only reason Radioshack is open is because people generally have no idea what they need or want to buy.

Probably because there's a lot of towns that aren't big enough to have a BB or CC that Radioshack is just right for.

We must be talking about different cards. Here in Wichita they have a special swipe box for the food stamp card, other cards use the standard swipe box. She used the food stamp box. I know it is a food stamp card because my worthless crackhead ex sister inlaw had one.

I'm envisioning it as a low earth orbit rocket system complete with one of those suits that has the rocket pack on it for actually going to get the satellite. Is it less cool than that?

If you buy the $20 discounted one, then yes. You need the full deluxe $40 model for the human sub-orbital flight package.
