Item Description
Title File 010
Transcript one was home. I wasn't sure I had heard correctly. Did he mean that he had come all the way to my home and then decided no one was home on the basis of an empty car space and the word of a neighbor rather than the elementary and practical method of knocking on my door? I couldn't believe this was ordinary procedure for welfare workers. Mr. de la Cruz replied that a home visit would not be neoessary beoause he had enough reports from "other sources* to ascertain that I was not eligible for food stamps. When I opined a second time that a home visit and personal talk with me should be primary in all investigations, Mr. de la Cruz claimed I was trying to intimidate him and darkly suggested that through his sources he knew "what was going on there.11 Moment of Truth "What was going on here?" I asked him. Quickly blurting the words out as if the very saying of them might contaminate him, Mr. de la Cruz declared, "You're living with that man as husband and wife '." "Husband and wife?" I asked, much amazed. "Where did yo\ pick up this information? Prom the neighbors, from the streets, from the gutter? Did you ask me if I was living with someone as husband and wife?" "Well, are you?" he asked, seeking final vindication. "10f course not!" I replied. (Husband and wife, indeed1. The very terms are oporessive to me. Whatever my relationship is to the person with whom I live, it is not husband and wife. Does the food stamp manual specify who you msy or may aot sleep with in order to qualify for food stamps, I silently wondered.) Getting Down to the Nitty Gritty "Read me the qualifications in the manual for food stamp eligibility," I demanded. Mr. de la Cruz, in a somewhat tacky voice, suggested I had a food stamp manual by my side and simply because I had a hot plate didn't make me eligible. I replied that I did not have a food stamp manual by my side, but that I would not have applied for food stamps in the beginning if I had not felt I was eligible. see page 10.
