Discriminatory Attitude by manager to a senior citizen
Posted by on
WICHITA, KANSAS -- I was looking at an ad for a job as photography assistance position at a studio. I called to ask about it and was connected to the manager of this store. I asked about the position and told her that I had gotten this ad from a place that helps seniors get a job. When I mentioned this the manager told me why would we want anyone like you working with us. She said she hadn't heard of such a thing and the attitude of her speech made me feel like elders and seniors were second class citizens and had no right to any respect or consideration. She went on talking like that for several minutes before she told me the position had been filled before Easter. I wouldn't bring a pet to this establishment, let alone a child or grandchild.

I do not accept this kind of attitude and feel like this particular action borders on senior citizen abuse. IT, should not be allowed period from any company or place of business, or at any time from anyone.

Wow. The manager really said that to you? That's pretty harsh.

Thanks, Jobs are so hard to find now, people should at least be respectable even though the job was filled and just say so instead of talking down to someone.

Does Separate Households Not Count
Posted by on
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- I recently visited Portrait Innovations in Houston, Texas. We were there to visit my son's dad. I decided while we were there, we were going to take our family pictures. My family pictures include myself and children. My son's father also wanted to have pictures done of himself, my son, and his daughter. Well, my son and his father had their pictures done before my family. When it was my turn I was told we did not qualify to get the package offer with any pictures with my son in them because my son already had pictures done with his father and sister. I explained to her that we were there to visit his dad and we were not together. We still could not get the offer with pictures he's in. I don't understand.

We are two individual customers that happen to have a child together. We ended up not taking the pictures because I refuse to leave me son out and we ended up coming back home to find somewhere else to have our family pictures done.

What exactly was the package offer? Were any restrictions listed anywhere?

It was probably a 'One per family or household' type of deal. And, well, when you have a child together, regardless of divorce, that child still makes you part of the same family.

Its pretty easy. Yes the coupons state one per family/household. If your son is in one session where the coupon is used, he cannot be in the second with the coupon. That equates to the same person benefitting from the special twice. It doesn't matter if its two different families or two different people paying. Lots of people didn't understand this.

Appreciate Their Work
Posted by on
COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS -- My daughter had an accident on the way to get pictures taken. We were an hr. late, but they were very understanding and patient with 4 kids that were getting pics taken way to close to their nap times and with the adults that were still in shock from the car accident. My daughter doesn't live in town and I am thankful we were able to get the pics while she was here thanks to the patience of the photographers and their co-workers. Will visit them again.

This is a great testimonial. Some of these portrait places can be short on patience. Having pictures taken with the kids is stressful enough. An accident would make it even worse. I'm glad they were so accommodating and that you got the pictures!
