I’m not exactly sure what the right forum is for this question, so I’ll put it here & thank the Mods to move it if need be.
My wife & I recently spent 2 weeks in California (note: we now have been in every state except Alaska & Hawaii, and they’re next!). While we were there we dropped some film off at a Target
to get developed. A week later we were sitting at home going over our other pictures of the trip when it hit us: D’OH!:smack: We forgot to go back and pick up those prints!
So I figure, no problem. I’ll call them up, pay for them over the phone via credit card, and they can mail them to me.
Yeah, right! You would think we called and asked them to send us pics of their grandmas privates! Even the manager freaked out. They had never, ever heard of a tourist having so much fun they forget something. And the idea of “mailing” something was, like, totally foreign to them. I had to all but beg to get them to agree to it. I had 5 different employees, including the photo department manager AND the head store manager tell me this is the most bizarre thing they have ever heard of. I know people in California, but all of them way to far away from this particular store to go get the prints (talking hundres of miles).
I’m the first to admit it was at least an 7 on the “DUH” scale. But is something like this THAT uncommon?
By the way, 2 weeks since they received payment and no pics yet! Now we have to start more phone calls!
