    The funeral took place three days after I arrived. And yes I did know they were on assistance. I offered to purchase their groceries because I can afford to. I also gave my brother some cash before I left. And I bought him one of those fancy e cigarettes and asked him to quit smoking. We had just lost our sister to lung cancer. I was there for a week. I did not ask him why he wanted to stop at the beer store. This is not some made up story. You can choose to believe it or not. It dosn't matter to me either way. My brother has been milking the system for a long time.I disaprove of his choices that he is obviously passing on to his sons. He is still my brother however and I care about him especially at this difficult time in our lives.

After they had eaten I took my brother and his sons in my rental car, none of them have a car, to buy groceries which I gladly paid for. On the way back they asked me to stop at a store so i did. They came out with beer and cigaretts. Well needless to say i was pissed. I asked, how can you afford beer and cigaretts but can't afford food. My brother responded "the store accepted his food stamp card for beer and smokes, isn't that cool" I said hell no its not cool. My brother and his adult sons are on food stamps. So what am I to do. Turn in my brother and his sons.
    Your brother is an idiot, sorry to say it but that is how I feel. If he feels he'd rather starve than not smoke than that is up to him. The government gives him food stamps to feed himself and if he wastes that money than that is his choice. You do not need to turn him in for being a dumbass IMHO. Now if he has minors and is not feeding them than you should turn him into child services.

    The store you should report though, he is facilitating this bad behavior and should be punished for it.

    I agree to ratting out the store.

    I would not report the brother for that purchase.

    You should tell your brother that you are going to show up again without warning some day and if the children don't have decent food you will call CPS. If he went all crazy in response, just repeat the warning and - later - do it. No food? Call CPS.

    You never call CPs. Ever. Child predatory services should only be called if a kid is in life or death danger. If there isn't serious ongoing abuse, you should address the problem yourself the best you can.

    It is a tough call......I really don't know what I would do.....I guess before I turned him in I would try and make him stop.

    I would agree, but apparently the children are older, like 18 and 19 or something, so to be fair they could get jobs and buy their own food.

    Sgt. Rock, you should tell those boys to get jobs or go to school or something. Sadly, your brother my be just too set in his ways, but I think you could talk with those boys and give them boot to the butt so to speak to motivate them to make their lives better. A lot of times when it comes from someone who isn't their parents, they will listen more and information will actually sink in. Lol!
