A Much-Needed Rant

If you are not a Republican, please don't take offense at the following post.

I'm all for giving presents to and receiving presents from your significant other for any and all occasions... as long as you can afford them. One of my coworkers (surprisingly not the one I've mentioned before) is flaunting her two new David Yurman items that her "baby daddy" (yes, she really calls him that) got her for Valentine's Day. She is on food stamps, WIC, and Medicaid.

Just sayin'... don't use my tax money to support yourself and buy frivolous things.

  3. I'm not a Republican but I completely agree... it makes me sick how people abuse the system that way. Some people truly need the help, but the others that take advantage... shame on them.

  4. I'm with Stephanie, I'm not a Republic either, but I totally agree. My Mom (also not a Republican) saw this all the time in her field of work in our small town. She grew to be very bitter at times.

  6. Oh don't get me started. And I'm awful about keeping my mouth shut in situations like that, so I'd be the one who would say something like, "Wow, isn't that really expensive stuff?"

  9. If you pay taxes then you should be appalled. Its people like this who happily take their handouts that infuriate me. She should have to sell her DY and pay back the government!

  11. Hey! I just discovered your blog and I think the layout is precious! But yes, that woman's 'baby daddy' should buy her more practical things.

  12. Hmmm. That's sad. Some people use the help they receive to make a better life for themselves.And then we have your coworker who may never try to rise above. But weirdly...if her BD can afford David Yurman, shouldn't he be able to afford food? Yikes.
