Misunderstood When Walking Into A Photo Shop

| Right | April 12, 2016

Customer: “Can you enlarge this photo to 8×10?”

Me: “I can, but I’ll have to crop it.”

Customer: “Oh, no. No cropping.”

Me: “Then it can’t be 8×10. I can make it 6×10 if you want.”

Customer: “Well, if you can make it 6×10, why can’t you make it 8×10?!”

Me: “Because those aren’t the same dimensions.”

Customer: “But 6×10 is smaller! Just make it bigger so it will be 8×10!”

Me: “I can’t. If I make it bigger, it will be longer than 10 inches. If you want it 8×10, the sides need to be cropped.”

(She finally agrees to have one of the sides cropped. After I come back with her photocopy, she is now displeased with something else.)

Customer: “Why isn’t this in colour!?”

Me: “Um, it is in colour.”

Customer: No, it isn’t!”

Me: “Yes, it is. I looks exactly the same as your original.”

Customer: “But my original is all old! The colours have faded!”

Me: “Yes, but it’s still in colour.”

Customer: “But I thought you would make the picture look new!”

Me: “No, I can’t do that. I just have a photocopier.”

Customer: “But you said it would be in colour!”

Me: “It is in colour.”

Customer: “But it’s old looking!”

Me: “Of course it is. It’s an old picture.”

Customer: “Why won’t you change the colours?!”

Me: “Because I just have a photocopier here. That’s something you would have to take to a digital photographer.”

Customer: “Well, how much does that cost!?”

Me: “I don’t know.”

(The customer continued to mutter about how the picture wasn’t in colour as I rang her through.)
