Yesterday I went to Boots to get enlargements done of some of the photos I took last week.
All well and good, I chose the option of instant 8x6 prints. When ready I went to the counter to pay for them only to be told by the assistant that she couldn't let me have them as they were clearly the work of a professional.
Needless to say I wasn't pleased. It took an argument and clearance from her manager but I got them in the end. Then it struck me...
The assistant had thought the work was far too good to have been done by one of their usual customers. I realised that this was flattery, albeit back-handed flattery.
Hi ho, such is life
