For the record… I spent 4 HOURS in Target today. Yes, that was 4 HOURS. Not 4 hours of shopping in Target. That was only about 30 minutes. The other 3 1/2 hours were spent standing at the Kodak kiosk trying really hard to print off 400 pictures from our Croatian Vacation we took this summer. It took me a good 30 minutes to print off the first 200. (It would only let you print off 200 at a time.) Only to find about half way through my printing that the ribbon on the printer needed to be replaced. I thought this would be a quick fix. Two hours later…I was still standing there trying to help Darnette, a Target employee, fix said printer. Bless her heart. She was so sweet. Seriously. She sang songs about Jesus. She cussed a little. She tried SO hard to fix that printer. I couldn’t be mad at her, but I could feel myself losing a little bit of patience. So, I ended up leaving for an hour… Homegoods was calling my name. I thought giving her some time to work on it without me standing over her might help matters. I came back and it was working!!! Woohoo!!! We were so excited!!! The bad news was I had to reprint EVERYTHING all over again. I started reprinting and the same thing happened AGAIN. At that point, I made the executive decision to leave. I had not eaten anything except a banana all day. My nerves were shot and I was starving. Thankfully, I did have a little over a hundred printed off. The rest of my pictures are somewhere stuck in a kiosk that decided not to print anymore.
The lesson learned here was this: I showed sweet Darnette a little kindness and understanding during this whole fiasco. (Apparently other people had not showed her the same kindness.) She gave me the few pictures that did print off for free! I made her day a little bit better and she did what she could to make mine better! I LOVE that Golden Rule!
