Winn-Dixie Stores Complaint - Winn Dixie lost my pictures
In July 2003 after getting back from my North Carolina trip, I took my disposable camera to Winn Dixie #18 in Neptune Beach, Florida so I could get my pictures developed. It was a 24 exposure camera, I only took 17 pictures so I turned the camera in with it not being used up completely and they said that was fine and that they would probably just take pictures of the store or something with the remaining film. Somewhere along the line there was a big confusion or misunderstanding. Because when I went to pick up my pictures, there were some pictures missing. The photo lab manager didn't seem to know why. The employee that I originally turned them in to obviously didn't know what she was doing. All we know for sure is that somebody made a big mistake when developing my pictures. The photo lab manager then told me that all the pictures I took have been developed and that there shouldn't be any missing pictures. However, there are some pictures that I know I took because I remember taking them and I have no idea what happened to those pictures. I am missing at least 4 pictures. There was not anything that the photo lab manager could do for me because she did not have the missing pictures. The main problem is that when I turned the camera in, it was not completely used up. However, they told me that would not be a problem but apparently it is. I never got my missing pictures and we still never figured out why I was missing pictures but it is still disapointing and I will not take my pictures to get developed at Winn Dixie again. Luckily, these pictures weren't anything major but what if these were wedding pictures or something else major that couldn't be replaced? The pictures I took were mostly just pictures of family doing activities and stuff like that but I still want my pictures. It was also disapointing to my family seeing that they couldn't look at the pictures of all of us. In the future, Winn Dixie needs to hire more responsible employees that know what they are doing. To make it up to me, the photo lab manager gave me $2.00 which was definitly better than nothing. I still will get my film developed somewhere else from now on!
