So shame my mom get on me about being slow about pulling my money out. I said thanks and ran. Im also shy. He said he knew my money need to go some where else. Yea lol the lite bill."
In the Bless Your Heart section of our newspaper, you often see people thanking someone for paying for their groceries or other items at the check out. I think some people have come to expect someone else to pay for them. I have seen people hold up the line for a long period of time, pretending to search for their money, in every nook and cranny of their purse, in their pockets and then go through the same motions a second time and at the moment you are ready to scream, they reach right in and pull out the money and even get change back. I truly think that a lot of them are just trying to get some good person to step up and pay for them.
I've seen people walk up to others and tell them they need a "Blessing" today. They just need a little more money to get something they need. " I know times are hard right now, but can you bless me just a little, I NEED some flip-flops. These don't match my outfit and people will talk about me. I could get some more fip-flops for about a dollar. Do you think you could Bless me today? " Do you think they are all reading the Bless Your Heart section of the paper?
There are so many people begging every where you turn these days. I know our government provides food stamps, government housing, aid for dependent children, child care, medicaide, etc. for people in lower income brackets. Funny that so many of the people who get these services, drive newer cars, have the latest cell phones, and gold jewelry flashing everywhere. What is wrong with this picture?
