Grocery clerk makes woman cry for using food stamps9/25/2012
Crying in the grocery line isn't something you typically do, unless you're going through a breakup or your cat died. But when Cindy Nerger, of Warner Robins, Ga., went into a Kroger supermarket last week, she was brought to tears when the clerk berated her for using food stamps. According to Nerger, he held up the line while other customers watched, arguing over $10 worth of items he said weren't covered. When a manager came and said to give them to her, he exclaimed, "Excuse me for working for a living and not relying on food stamps!" at which point the embarrassed woman broke down. Nerger, who had kidney failure in 2008, can't work until she gets a transplant. She declined a gift certificate the store offered with an apology for the incident. [Source]
