Re: Tell Me About Your Stupid Mistakes

Not my mistake, but a funny/sad story from the film days.

A friend of mine told me this story as they were in the legal department for a large drugstore chain. Back in the day, (for you twenty-somethings) you brought in your film in the cartridge, filled out an envelope for processing and dropped it into a slot or bin to be picked up by Kodak or whoever was going to process the film.

The chain ran a film developing sale, and the response in one store was particularly high and the bins filled up during the day.

Apparently the store staff had decided to empty the overflowing bins, and put all of those envelopes with the undeveloped film into - you guessed it - trash bags, and set them aside.

Of course, those bags got tossed by accident by someone else in the store.  Would not have wanted to be around that store the next week or two….

Sad, but true story.
