So, about 3 weeks ago or so my wife went to the local grocery to pick up a few items she needed. It was a saturday morning and the place was packed. As she walked around gathering things of her list she started to notice full carts sitting here and there unattended, just left. She thought it seemed strange but didnt think much more of it......As she started to approach the checkout out she saw at least 30-40 shopping carts just sitting with no-one around and full of food.....She asked what was going on and was then informed that the GA EBT (food stamps) system was currently down.......the shocker was that she was one of two people in the entire store that was NOT paying with food stamps........an ENTIRE store! Its no wonder what will happen when that system goes out for a week, a month, forever? I went into a connivence/gas station the other day and needed to pull out some money from the ATM......Im looking around for an ATM but cant seem to find it. The clerk points to a machine with a handmade sign that says EBT DEBIT CARD.........Confused I walk over to the machine to check it out........ So if this snt a gross misuse of a system.....In GA, you are given food stamps in the form of a EBT card which acts as a debit card at the store......Its not supposed to let you buy things at liquor stores an such.....well connivence stores have this machine in which you swipe your card and it charges it and prints you a receipt.......you then take this receipt to the clerk and he gives you cash for it........anyway why havnt we started giving out drug tests to people receiving govt assistance?
