Do ya'll get sick of everyone knowing everything just coz youre a single mom and they think they got the right to tell you how to live. One of my favs is people thinking the state will give me all kind of $$$$ to help me just coz im a single mom. One lady told me didnt your medicaid check hit the bank? I said do what?!?! You should be able to get public housing. Yeah right. The waiting list is loooong! Im bout to give people some phone numbers say here idjit! Call find out for yourself.
Yup. My family kept telling me to get food stamps! Apply! Apply! Apply! I freaking did!!!! They don't just hand them out to everyone. I am poor but not poor enough to meet the cutoff. My favorite was my grandma telling me "Go down to that office and DEMAND that he pay more child support!" Yeah ok....because thats totally the way it works. So frustrating to hear that from people who have no idea.
If its someone I know, I say ok thanks, because I know they are trying to help. If. It's just a busybody know it all looking down their nose at me, I tell them I can handle my own business and they need to go handle their own and not worry about me. Or if they say it at the wrong time, I politely smile and tell them to fuck themselves.
