What do yo pay for Internet every month? Around $40-50? I feel like that’s pretty standard. Little did you know that if you just stop working and collect from the government, you can get that for much cheaper from AT&T. And thanks to a viral Facebook post from a Tennessee woman that has been shared over 100,000 times, the whole world knows about it:
I’m not privy to all the details regarding this, but I’m assuming AT&T is doing this program for some sort of tax break, because it checks out. There’s no way they’re giving a 80% discount and that money is coming out of their pockets. That’s not how successful corporations do business. Either they’re getting government grants to subsidize the loss they’re taking, or they’re increasing rates for everyone else in order to fund this.
And since when is high speed Internet a necessity? I understand the rationale behind food stamps. We need food to survive. But high speed Internet? This is something the general public now needs to provide for you too??
Either way, guess who’s paying for it?
Guess who’s not paying for it?
AT&T and/or ratchets.
And this post was like a mating call for foodstampopotamuses all over the country. Some of the names that were tagged are just……amazing….
Devin DaJuice Davis is about to find out about the deal of the century!!
Here’s the thing too – the woman who made the post has two kids, a job, and an able bodied husband who also works. She’s actually a pharmacy technician:
This is everything that is wrong with America. Two parent home, both parents work, and they STILL qualify for assistance. This is not why welfare was created. It was meant for the destitute to help get them through a tough time. Now it’s a lifestyle, and you’re incentivized to stay on it by private corporations like AT&T.
Don’t believe me. Check the comments like this one:
She’s not even kidding. Quit your job and spit out babies = more free shit. That’s just science.
Dani also owns her own hair lock business, and it looks like business is good….
She can afford jewelry
iMachines for bathroom selfies
Designer bags and clothing, to go along with flat brimmed Chicago Bulls hats and accompanying Chicago Bulls ugly sweaters:
He’s got no shortage of bling either:
Oh, and he proposed to her in the kitchen in the most romantic way possible….
With a blunt in his ear and a prescription bottle in the background. What woman doesn’t want to be proposed to by a guy with a half smoked blunt in his ear? Sorry ladies, he’s taken!
Immediately after that they went out and had a romantic dinner at…..
Where else? Although any place with a EBT reader will do.
Anyway, I got nothing against food stamps. But I think the big picture here is how proud people are to be on food stamps. I feel like that’s something you should’t be bragging about to the world. You’re basically saying, “I made a series of bad life decisions that ended up with me being dependent on the taxpayers to pay for my groceries.” Again, I got nothing against people on EBT. Everyone goes through rough patches. But to me it’s something you shouldn’t be proud of.
Not these ratchets though:
As you can see from her post, hundreds of thousands of people tagged all their friends and basically announced to the world that they’re on the public dime too. And now we all pay more for Internet because AT&T wanted to earn some progressive points and probably avoided paying more in taxes by doing so.
