    Hi there. Just my 2 cents worth here. Sounds like your in the same

    boat I was in a few months ago after my husband had heart surgery. His

    income went down to 50 percent with his diability insurance but he

    didn't realize it was even further down since he was also not pulling

    in the over time he was use to getting. I had to sit him down and show

    him on paper that the money just wasn't there and now we also had

    hospital bills to take care of. Showing him on paper made to have to

    see what the deal was and for him to back off the internet where he was

    stuck all day making what ever purchases he decided to make.

    I'm a big supporter of the envelope system myself. It shows you in

    your face how much you either have or don't have. When it's empty your

    spending is done till the next money comes in.

    Also, don't let him use the guilty trip on you. How many of us are

    really where our dreams were. I would guess not many of us. Dreams

    are fine if they pan out. Sometimes you have to park those dreams and


    hit reality.

    Hi Everyone. I live in Chicago and am on Food Stamps.

    I get Food Stamps, every month on the 14th. Yesterday

    I checked and they were on my card. When I went to the

    store, I got what I needed and went to the Check Out.

    That was when I discovered that the machine wouldn't

    take my card. It turns out the System was down. Later

    after I had been home, for a while, I called both Jewell

    and Dominick's and it was still down.





    Now I don't know if this has anything to do with the State

    not having a Budget yet, but this upet me to no end. I am

    frustrated, because if the Grocery Store knew that the System

    was down, then they should have had signs up on all Doors.

    I am sure that there were probably other people, upset as well.

    They may not have known until you went through the line that it was

    down (Unless they told you specifically before you tried the card).

    SInce they do know now, I would call and recommend they post a sign

    at the front of the stores.



    You should call your case worker, in the mean time, and find out if

    it's a problem that will be fixed quickly or not.

    The good news, is that the System is back up

    and running. I have seen smaller stores, put

    up signs that say the Food Stamp Card Reader

    isn't working.

    I agree they should have a notice on the doors. But sadly that is what the world is coming to, people just don't care.
