Rite Aid Ruined my film
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- I dropped off a roll of 35 mm fuji brand ISO 400 color film (that has been successfully developed by both Target and Wallmart) at the 1 hour photo area; and when I came by to pick it up, I found out that my film had been Completely Ruined: it was CLEAR and Nothing came out. The clerk who assisted me told me that I had given them some special Clear Color film that could only be developed at studios, which is Not true because both Target and Wallmart have successfully developed this film for me before. The clerk then mentioned that I should purchase some 'normal' 35mm color film, and just handed me back the ruined film with my order bag and did Not offer any reimbursement for my ruined film. I was angry so I told her that someone should have told me that they would not take the type of film I had brought because the photos in it were Very important to me, or maybe they could have put some warning label somewhere. The clerk told me to "Look at the Instructions" on the order form. The order form has No instructions on what brands of 35mm color film it can accept (it has box selections for the film sizes: 35mm, APS, or other ; and then another selection area for type: color prints, slides, or BW ; and then a selection are for the number of exposures. And then the selection area for what type of prints I wished to get. There is a box for me to write "Special Instructions", however, since I had successfully developed this type of film at both Wallmart and Target without needing to note down Any special instructions, I figured that I would not need to write anything down).
