So I'm driving through town today and pass this stand. I stop and ask if I can get one. Lady laughs and says " you're not on govt subsidy, are you?" I say no, is that a problem?
She goes into her well rehearsed speech that includes the following gems
" these are only for the poor people who need help paying for a phone"
"It's ONLY 250 minutes or about 3 hours a month they get". I said that's more like 4 and some change, but whatever
"These are only for emergencies, a lot of women would be killed if they didn't have a phone". Dead serious on that one, no joke
" they can also get ones for their kids to use on case they need help"
Bottom line I was thwarted in my attempt to get my slice of the American dream. Bastards
should have stole one IMO
"Because Bama now sucks just like FSU used to suck when we were getting dominated by OU. Does it make sense now?"- Sliger (FSU Fan)
Maybe a petition?
only for abusers of Social Security, Disability, and Welfare systems IYAM
oh and in
Dive for the thrill, shoot for the kill.
Looks like you should avoid that area
What shit hole town are you in? Leave, and leave fast
That's in Des Moines Iowa. Inner city but not really that bad compared to big cities.
She said I would need a food stamp card or proof of other govt subsidy received.
Her speech about the needy and her emphasis on emergencies was laughable. She was nice enough, but her efforts to convince me that 250 min a month wasn't really much I found offensive
They were just setting up and the product wasn't out yet
I think being white killed my chances immediately.
An Obama bumper sticker would have gotten you that phone.
I will not sell my soul for a phone
You missed a crucial part
They should just give out free hysterectomies instead.
It's purple drank, btw. They can't afford grape drank.
Started at the bottom, now we here.....better get used to it.
Indeed. Obummer sux.
Do they come with texting? Because if so I seriously doubt I use 250 minutes a month...
True... My mistake
I didn't ask that. I was still dealing with the heartbreak of being turned down
Only black people in line for free cell phones? Interesting.
BornToBeRed said: WPS, just a head's up. We might be the most family-friendly board on the network, so take it easy on your normal wps-ness.
The token white guy was quickly rebuffed
That shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.
You should be offended. This nation caters to the minorities and poors; it's truly sickening.

My son's message to Obama, Clemson, and Georgia
It's just refreshing to know that the people not on subsidy are safe enough and have no emergencies in the eyes of our govt
When I first started working I worked at a lil independent Verizon retailer. I met some characters to say the least. We had a free phone sign in the window. Which said " free phone see rep for details. Which it was free but it was free with a two year contract and it was just the plain Jane phone. So anyways this black lady comes in and up to me and says "um yes, I was over at firehouse eating my firehouse sub and I saw your sign for free phone and well I want the free phone" [holds out hand] so I say ok it's with a two year contract lets run your credit and get started. She gets mad and goes on about false advertising. I laughed in her face. It was then I realized I wasn't a work with people kind of guy.
