He Snapped A Photo Of Someone Blatantly Abusing Food Stamps, Then What He Saw Them do Is Absolutely Horrid…


It seemed like an ordinary shopping trip, but he had no idea that he was about to leave the supermarket in such a rage. But it wasn’t the long lines at the checkout counter or the human crush in the produce aisle that set him off. It wasn’t the screaming children or the zombified mothers pushing their carts in front of him in a daze. It was another family’s shopping cart, and when he glanced inside he totally lost it.

When an Army dad looked at the shopper’s grocery cart, he grew so angered that he couldn’t help but snap a quick photo of it.

Patrick Gibson is a soldier in the U.S. Army, so he knows a thing or two about paying his dues. When Patrick watched how the couple in question paid for their carts of food, he was forced to bite his tongue.

He uploaded a picture of his own shop to Facebook, putting it side by side with the cart belonging to the couple in front of him.

He wrote: “The picture on the right is of the purchase in front of me in line. If you can’t tell in the picture there are 2 full buggies of groceries including such items like steak and some other very nice choices of food. Here’s the kicker. This purchase was made in food stamps.”

Not only that, but Gibson took note of the fact that the couple pulled out an EBT card to pay an $800 grocery bill, as well as folding a big wad of cash over to get to the card in the first place.

The final straw in Gisbon’s book was when he watched the couple load their bounty into their carts, before making their way – seemingly without physical impairment – to a brand new Hyundai Genesis, a vehicle Gibson claims is worth somewhere between $15,000 to $20,000 more than his own car.

“I just thought I would take the time to tell this person/family that you are very welcome from all of us hard-working/struggling to-buy food Americans that have to foot the bill for your fancy steak feast while I skip breakfast and lunch every day [so] that way my wife and children have food to eat every day because $50-$75 dollars doesn’t go very far,” Gibson finished. “So, you enjoy your $800 free grocery purchase.”

Unsurprisingly, Gibson’s post has garnered a fair amount of attention. There are those who concur with his idea that people are now abusing a system meant to keep struggling families alive, whilst others think he’s been too quick to judge a couple he knows nothing about.
