"We did it gang,let’s celebrate with a POLKA!"
Hey, the entirety of my childhood.
I am giving you and Vanessa the gift of life. Sweet, screaming, pooping life. And you don’t even have to be there when it comes out all covered in blood and guts.
if I had to contact like….my 6th grade self, it would go somewhat like this.
You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
I was on food stamps for 3 years and I can verify that what tumblr user througthewildblue says is the truth.
There are even certain foods that you cannot buy with food stamps! Stuff from the deli at the grocery store is like a 50/50 hit or miss.
So like, honestly, you can only buy SOME food with food stamps, and nothing else.
This is so important for everyone to know as soon as humanly possible.
THE GIFSET I’VE BEEN WAITING MY ENTIRE LIFE FOR.
I will always be grateful for how this was depicted in the film.
