The other day a fellow blogger found herself in an interesting situation. Yesterday, I found myself in my own "What Would You Do" situation. While buying groceries, a woman came up to another shopper and I and offered to buy our groceries with her food stamps in exchange for cash. We both turned down the offer and I contemplated what to do next. I ended up speaking to the store manager and without specifically pointing her out, mentioned the potential government fraud happening in his store, perhaps on aisle 5. It really irritates me that people chose to abuse the system. Because of people like her, we all end up paying more and the people who really need help can't get the assistance they need.

I would have done the exact same thing. Good for you!

Thank you for saying something! Can the store do anything? You did the best thing possible! SAY NO!
