Like most people, my life is busy. I finally found the time to organize some photos to try out a photo processor, but I got worried when my check engine light came on.
My best consumer experience: Checking out Costco’s photo department
Ritz Camera closed its last store, the second of two, in my community. A big disappointment. With only two stores left in the state, a friend and I were lucky to get a photo book finished that we were working on.
I tried Costco. The photos were fine. That’s one of the photos above. I sell my photos on greeting cards, so I like to have excellent quality.
However, at Costco, their machines don’t offer many options for editing for 4 x 6 photos – minimal cropping, but no enhancing or changing the colors.
Most of the editing I do is cropping, and I can do that on my Apple computer before I take them on a disk.
My worst consumer experience: The check engine light coming on in my car
Today, just as I was approaching my acupuncture’s office, the check engine light came on.
Now, I know the oil light is critical. You must stop the car immediately. But I couldn’t remember about the check engine light. I worried about it during my appointment. It’s the Saturday before Labor Day. My mechanic isn’t open today and won’t be on Monday either.
When I finished my appointment, I looked in my car’s instruction book. It said the check light is about the emissions system. I need to get it checked right away. I’m relieved it’s not urgent.
It’s a good thing I don’t have a big Labor Day trip planned.
