The Knucklehead of the Day award
Goes to Florida's Department of Children and Family Services. In the wake of Hurricane Wilma, disaster food stamp benefits are allowed for families who don't normally qualify. People were given six days to apply in the disaster areas affected by Wilma. That was November 7-12th. People were told if approved their benefits would come in 7-10 days. Well its over 2.5 weeks since some friends applied and they are still waiting. A news report on a local television station also showed others haven't gotten the cards. So what the heck is going on? Attempts to contact DCF and EBT who administers this program are an exercise in futility. Either pass the buck operators, or a website that says Application denied. Last year these same friends got their card about 10 days after applying, DCF is showing its incompetence again. For screwing the people of Florida already hurting from Hurricane Wilma, Florida's Department of Children & Family Services is today's knucklehead of the day.
