Rant: Gambling and social security disability

This occurred back in 2013

The gentleman in front of me at the VIP Services checkin at the Atlantic City hotel I frequent had the following conversation with the VIP checkin clerk:

Man: “I don’t know how much I am going to be gambling this weekend”
Clerk: “Oh, why’s that?”
Man: “Well, for some reason there has been an issue lately with my disability and food stamps and they have been coming in later than expected”
Clerk: <look of stunned disbelief>
Man: “Don’t get me wrong, I am still going to play, just not as much as I normally do until the benefits get straightened out from Obama”

Is it just me or is there something wrong with a seemingly able-bodied man (yes, I know, could be a mental deficiency) talking about his disability checks and food stamps all the while holding the highest-level player’s card and checking in at the VIP Services are of the hotel/casino? (Only players with casino hosts can use the check-in area so apparently he plays enough to have not only the highest-level players card but also a casino host)
