We’ll Rant and We’ll Roar Like Ignored Film Users

The title comes from the traditional Newfoundland song “We’ll Rant and We’ll Roar” which is sung to the tune of  the British folk song “Spanish Ladies”.
Why am I ranting and roaring? I’m only ranting and roaring on the inside but I was pretty fed up this morning when I went to the photo lab to pick up the film prints I ordered last Monday and was told, “Oh, I didn’t do them. I forgot.” This is not the first time this has happened. It happens almost every time. Film work collects dust on a shelf while he attends immediately to everyone who walks in with a USB drive or a mobile phone. I’m going to go back again tomorrow and see if he’s got them done. He is probably doing them today because I was so irritated. I don’t think I’m going to bring my film there anymore. I thought about sending things to Seoul but this means more money for postal costs, etc. I should just use digital. And buy a good printer so I can avoid photo labs altogether. But getting good prints at home is not easy and ink is not cheap. Not for the first time I wonder if I should buy paper and pencils and learn sketching . . . .
