Patrick Gibson, a soldier in the U.S. Army, so he knows a thing or two about paying his dues.
Not long ago, he stopped at his local Walmart store to purchase a few food items and diapers for his family with the little bit of money left over from his paycheck.
As he stood in line, he couldn’t help but noticed the two full carts of food the couple in front of him was buying.
Little did Patrick know, as he stood in the Walmart line that day, that he was about to see something that would have a profound effect on him.
When Patrick saw how the couple paid for their purchase and what they did with it, he realized that there was something very, very wrong.
He then took to social media to vent his frustrations.
Patrick snapped a photo and uploaded the picture of his own shop to Facebook, putting it side by side with the cart belonging to the couple in front of him.
He wrote, “The picture you see on the left is the amount of groceries including diapers that I was able to afford this pay period for my family,” which consist of his wife, son, daughter, and himself
Patrick explained that he paid in cash and that he works really hard to make a living and provide for his family.
”The picture on the right is of the purchase in front of me in line. If you can’t tell in the picture there are 2 full buggies of groceries including such items like steak and some other very nice choices of food.”
