Why the hell should he eat crap and live in poverty?
Why should he not be able to "treat" himself?
Realise that he is on DISABILITY, he may not be able or capable of standing and cooking for long peroids of time or able to follow instructions, ever thought about that ?
No your to busy condeming people.
Rather than ranting like a fool.
what do expect him to do live a dissmal difficult life ?
Well thats comes down to what quality of life do you want the ill and vunrable to have?
By your standards and very low dissmal quality of life with nothing to live for....
Your of able body and mind you can work harder to get better things ...
Instead of soda and SaraLee pie and Stove Top Stuffing you could have bought a few loaves of bread, jars of peanut butter and honey, and boxes of spaghetti. Instead of the instant flavored rice you could have bought a huge box or two of minute rice .. or gotten a good sized bag of plain rice that would have been better for you and lasted a lot longer. Why buy a jar of olives when you could get a small bag of potatoes?
Instead of canned chicken you could have bought fresh chicken thighs and cooked them yourself.
2 large cans of chicken = 10$
2 packages of chicken thighs = $10 (and you get at least 10 thighs).
I know you are looking for sympathy, but what I see is someone wasting the money on lazy crap.
If you would cook for yourself instead of getting the instant stuff, your money would go farther.
edit on 11/17/2013 by FlyersFan because: (no reason given)
My Mother used to buy 100 lb bag of potatoes also the first of the month.
For the same reason that I don't treat myself ... He can't afford it and neither can I.
He didn't say it was THAT kind of disability. He said it was a different one.
(mental health one)
NOT EVEN CLOSE.
And as I said .. if you had bothered to read the thread before ranting ... you'd know that I said we had been on welfare and 'free lunches' for a number of years, and during those years we didn't indulge in ice cream or pies or soda or ____ fill in comfort food of choice. We had lots of sandwiches and pasta and our 'meat' was 'fried balogna' and we had lots of rice and beans. It's COMMON SENSE to shop wisely with what you have rather than blow it on junk food.
