To think that people living on welfare shouldn't be running off every five minutes for a new tattoo or piercing?

I'm probably going to get shot down for this, but I just had a little disagreement with a woman I know. She posted a photo on Facebook of a rather large tattoo on her forearm that she'd just had done. Last month she had skin divers put in her chest and hand. The month before she had another shit tattoo.
This individual is single and has two children. She hasn't worked a day in the last decade, but is living off the state. Am I being a bitch by thinking she should spend the money she receives on feeding the children and keeping a roof over their heads? I noted that she feeds her boys Pot Noodle for dinner but makes sure she's got her fags too. It just annoys me.

Does she have a big tv? A goat perhaps?

MN needs a smiley for popcorn, for those of us grabbing it in preparation for sitting back and watching the fireworks.

You've got no idea if she gets a shit ton of child maintenance.

I was on benefits with DC. I had loads of money. Because my DC dads (yes PLURAL) paid lots of maintenance money. I went on holiday and all sorts. Keep your fucking nose out

OP you are completely right.

People on benefits should wear sackcloth and live in a cardboard box.

Does her goat have tattoos?

I bet it was an immigrunt goat.

Pot noodle is nasty stuff. I went through a phase of rather liking it as a teenager much to my mums disgust. I'd rather eat poo nowadays.

It's goady city round here this evening. Such fun. Not.

Totally agree. Benefits are to live on not to splurge on unnecessary items, makes me mad how people "struggling" and jobless still smoke, drink and have sky tv and online gambling, I've worked in finance for years and so i see what their money goes on. I wouldn't say its everyone on benefits not at all but maybe 60% that give the rest a bad name.
