Any moms or moms to be on the WIC program? If so have you noticed a difference in the treatment you get when getting your WIC stuff? I ask because I have been on WIC the past 2 months and normally shop at Wal-Mart since it is practically next door to me. Anyway, I have noticed that the cashiers and other employees are incredibly rude to me everytime I am there getting my WIC stuff, even if I am also buying a couple hundred dollars worth of other groceries. When I go in to buy stuff when I am not using the WIC vouchers I get treated completely different, smiles and conversation and just generally nicer. I sent an email to their corporate office today complaining about the treatment since it seems to be something that happens every single time. I was just curious what others were experience.

I have been on WIC for 3 months now and yeah I have gotten that feeling every time I go to shop although not so much from employees but other people in line. . Maybe now since they are issuing everything out on cards it will be different. It is like people think WIC is degrading or somthing. I say $#%^ Em. haha And I hate hearing how people say, "my taxes are paying for that" yada yada. The way I look at it is that I still pay taxes and have been paying long enough that it is time for us to get a lil back. Just brush the dirt off your shoulder hun cuz that is all it is!!!

Ya totally different. But then it is totally different when you have a cute cuddly baby in the buggy as well. I always apologize since i use about 5 checks at once in the beginning of the month. Try to be nice so they dont grawl at me. Ha ha

There is an actual WIC store right next to the office were i pick up my checks so usually i will just use all the checks i can right away to avoid going to the grocery store. When I do have to go to the stores I will try to go at a less busy time (ie: weekdays) to avoid making other customers wait while i use my checks. What i hate is when the cashier questions what i am getting off the checks! UGH! As if i am trying to cheat my way into sneaking other items past them or something!
