it wasn't even really worth developing your own film since it was so cheap just to get the film developed. Then you could do your own printing. The printing was the fun part.

I worked in a photo lab in college and can count on one hand the number of times someone asked for such. It makes a lot more sense to pay for development in the digital age because scanners don't require dark rooms and associative chemicals. If you have those things already, you might as well save yourself a couple of trips and do it yourself in less time.

PS-the lab techs use to keep a box of "personal" photos they would cull as they processed negatives by hand...for qc purposes, of course. Totally gross.
