There used to be a pro photo lab 5 minutes away from my house. They relocated to an area that is only accessible by car. I don't have a car. Now I am forced to send my film out via mail. I sent four sheets of 4x5 and one roll of 120 c-41 out on Monday, and I haven't gotten it back yet. The lab I sent it to is in Amsterdam, and that is only an hour away. I should have had that shit on Wednesday, Thursday at the latest.

This drives me fucking nuts. 

What makes is worse is that it cost me €48.49 for that tiny order. That's like $60! Shit is wrong. I realize that only 3 or 4 people reading this might understand my outrage, but believe me; it is outrageous.

Other than that, things are cool.
Have a nice weekend.

I know, it's really annoying and the worst thing is, most companies don't give a shit because they can get away with it...

I ended up getting the film back on Saturday, but I still think that is a long time for such a small order. These are dark times.

That is outrageous. I know that you use color film for a reason - otherwise the only solution I can think of is home processing black and white film. Killer.
