A man at the grocery store behind me in line paid for my salad.

I got a salad from the salad bar and I put green olives and black olives as well as grilled chicken.I put light ranch dressing and imitation crab meat on my salad.I added light ranch dressing to the salad.I tried paying for it with my food stamp debit card.The EBT card paid for my Diet Coke but for some reason it would not cover my salad.A man behind me in line said he would cover it.The salad bar is new and has only been open a couple of months.I love their salads.

@Courtlynn I bought a salad with food stamps last month.I think it was machine error.

I told him he was a Good Samaritan.It gave $69 on my card balance so it should have covered the salad.I used food stamps to buy my salad in April 2017.

That's nice the man paid for your salad. Maybe the EBT card would not pay for the salad cause it was prepared at the store? (I know you made it from a salad bar but there may be a weird rule.)

It doesn't make since because food stamps covered it in April 2017.
