A Kroger store manager in Georgia told Cindy Nerger, “Excuse me for working for a living and not relying on food stamps like you.”

The man’s comment came after Nerger and two other store employees disagreed over whether her total purchase was eligible for food stamps – the employees had insisted that roughly $10 of her bill was not covered. She said the manager ultimately told the employees to “just give it to her.”

After Nerger then stressed that she had been right all along, the man made his “working for a living” remark, she said.

“I turned around and realized how many people heard him and how many saw that happened and I was so embarrassed… I started crying,” she said.
