As a dreamer of dreams and a travellin' man, I have chalked up many a mile.
Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!
I don't understand the rationale, but Walmart corporate was "monitoring":
Kayla Whaling, a spokesperson for Walmart, tells KSLA News 12 that the company was "fully engaged and monitoring the situation and transactions during the outage."
"We did make the decision to continue to accept EBT cards (and purchases on WIC and SNAP) during the outage so that they could get food for their families."
Asked whether Walmart would be taking the loss on any food purchased on the cards that did not show limits, or on the perishable food left behind in carts, Whaling would only say that "we monitored transactions during the outage."

because you can get in your car and drive there the next day does not mean it is quite so easy a problem to resolve for those of the lowest economic strata
The whole system relies on technology. Technology that is interwoven with other technologies and we expect it to work right 100% of the time, but it doesn't.
It just doesn't.
It does not work all the time.
There is nothing we can do or say to change that.
Accept it and move on.
End of story.
Life is full of that - you expect something to work, and it doesn't.
If that manages to KILL SOMEONE - then they've got a lot more serious issues than their crappy transportation issue.

my suspicion is you are also not a food stamp recipient
go deal with your first world problems while we discuss something of importance to the underclass - taking away the food stamps of many who did nothing wrong
