Dad Explains Difference Between His Shopping Cart & Person Next To Him. Post Goes VIRAL [VIDEO]

A member of the United States Army was shopping for groceries to feed his wife and two kids. He was on a limited budget and shopping responsibly, getting the most groceries he can for his paycheck. That’s when he noticed something horrible next to him. It was a person with two shopping carts worth of food and the Army soldier was probably curious as to how one person can afford to buy all that food.

Then the Army soldier, Patrick Gibson, noticed something shocking. As the person with two carts loaded with groceries was paying their bill, they opened their wallet and instead of taking out the wad of cash to pay the bill, the person moved cash to take out their EBT card. A wallet full of cash and they were still paying with welfare? That smells like a small dose of welfare abuse if you ask me. Shouldn’t someone with a wallet full of money be able to afford their own groceries?

But wait, there’s more. The Army soldier noticed the customer putting their groceries into a somewhat expensive car. How can someone afford a Hyundai Genesis if they’re on welfare? Not that the car costs $100,000, but it’s not $10,000 either. If that car was the souped up model with all the gadgets and gimmicks, then you’re probably looking at a nice $300+ monthly payment. If they can afford a car like that, then what are they doing on welfare? Is that welfare abuse or what?

Here’s what the Army soldier, Patrick Gibson, had to say. You can tell he was frustrated and needed to vent because he saw something that he knew was not right and needed to be fixed.

Sorry but I had to vent. The picture you see on the left is the amount of groceries including diapers that I was able to afford this pay period for my family. ( wife, son, daughter,my self ) which was paid in cash since I actually work hard for a living. 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. Which I wouldn’t have a problem with if I didn’t see the person move their big fold of cash out of the way to get to the ebt card and then load them into the back of a brand new Hyundai Genesis. That is about 15k-20k more than my 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 that way my wife and children have food to eat everyday, because $50-$75 dollars doesn’t go very far. So you enjoy your $800 free grocery purchase.

If someone is on welfare, but has an expensive car and a wallet full of money, then I would suspect they’re playing the system, selling drugs and refusing to get a real job where they pay taxes and contribute to our society instead of leeching from it. If someone is on welfare and is using it to get back on their feet because they fell on hard times, then that’s respectable and honorable. That tells me the person knows when to ask for help and works hard to make things better.

I suspect the person that Patrick Gibson saw was a welfare leech who could not care less to work a day in their life. Some people say playing the system IS work and they have a point. Someone does have to know the ins and outs to abuse the system the right way and get all that free taxpayer money, but I don’t know if having 5+ kids all with fake ADHD diagnosis is worth the trouble. Especially when the welfare abusers won’t even use that money to properly take care of the children they birthed with random guys. These welfare queen women probably don’t even know the fathers of their kids.

If I saw a hardworking person on welfare, trying to better their life, going to work every day, then treating themselves to a steak courtesy of their EBT card, then I wouldn’t care. It’s not our place to judge what food people buy with their benefits. If they ate steak tonight, but Ramen Noodles the rest of the week, because that’s how they budget their food, then that’s their choice and they have the freedom to do so.

When I see a bum welfare queen buying steak on the taxpayers dime, then I hope someone reports them for fraud and abusing the system. There’s an old saying where I’m from and that saying is that “steak is for taxpayers” and if you don’t like it, then too bad.

Thank you Patrick Gibson, for your service to this country and standing up for American taxpayers. It’s people like you who make America great.

Here’s a video that makes me think of welfare abusers.
