I'm Sorry, Snapfish!

I uploaded some photos from my Snapfish account and ordered prints to be made, and picked up, at my local Walgreens. I was having dinner with friends and wanted to carry along the latest, cutest, shots of Mason! (Of course!) I received an e-mail saying that the prints were ready. I ran into Walgreens on my way to dinner, gave the gal at the photo desk my name and she checked. Nope, they weren't there. "Did I have the right Walgreens", she asked. Yes. I told her I'd received the e-mail. She told me to resubmit them, "sometimes this kind of thing happens", she explained. I did. Same scenario the next day... e-mail received, this time I called Walgreens and was assured they were there. I stopped in, "no" this time the gal suggested I wait another day. I was sure I was at the right store and explained that I had phoned. No photos. On Friday they called the house, the prints were ready, finally! When I went into the store they were NOT there. This was just plain ridiculous at this point. When I told her about the phone call from THEM she typed my phone number into the computer. "Excuse me" she murmured, went back to the file area and produced an envelope of prints. She held it out to me and asked: "is this you"? I smiled, "yes" that's me". I forgot that I had set up my Snapfish account with my blogger name! No wonder they couldn't find them at Walgreens when I was using my real-life, everyday, name! The photos had been there all along! I'm sorry Snapfish, for all the bad things I thought about you. This is what happens when real world and blogger worlds collide! Oh, and that latest, cutest, picture of Mason? It was definitely worth waiting for; three months old and full of happy smiles!
Life is Good!

Sorry you had all that aggravation - but the whole thing is pretty funny in hindsight... live and learn :-)

Too funny! Frustrating...but funny!

Yes, the photo was worth the hassle. How can you keep your hands off those little cheeks long enough to take the picture?

Karen Dianne Lee said...

Well it was certainly worth the wait.

Now, I would have loved to have been the clerk at Walgreens. How funny. :)

Good for a Smile and a Needle Love, *karendianne.

Oh so funny!! Your alter ego was obviously in charge that day. You will think of this every time you order photos from now on. ;-)

Mason is just a little sweetheart. The photos were worth the wait.

Hugs!

Oh no! I bet you thought Walgreen's had lost their minds! I'm glad the confusion was figured out, and you got your wonderful photos of Mason! He is just too sweet!
