so i had to print out a form today, to mail it. i put it onto my flashdrive and went driving down northwest, stopped at the first copy place i saw, Poor Rob's Copy / Design. turns out, he is poor for a very good reason. he may be good at design, but he could not manage to print out my file without me telling him what buttons to click. and then..
"so i don't really know what to charge for this, this is new."
"yeah. the place around the corner, you know, they'd charge you five bucks just to plug your drive in, get the file off of it, plus printing on top of that."
"seriously? what a scam!"
"have you ever done this somewhere else?"
"uh nope. i used to have a printer, before i moved"
"oh. well, what do you think i should charge?"
we settled on 50 cents for 2 pages, which i think is a bit high, but i'm not too worried about it.
i made a friend today!
went out to my car and found this note on my windshield:
WELCOMEso i'm gonna go visit later.
I'M FROM N.H. TOO!
dude, staples charges $2.50 to takes something off a disk plus 9 cents for each black and white page/and approximately $1.15 per page if they contain color...
you got a deal!

OMG she lives in the room where the rotting lady is in the tub in The Shining! Your new friend is AMAZING!!!
Damn, that guy sounds horribly incompetent, I'm sorry. I hate explaining things to people who are in a position that they're supposed to know...
In other news, I just realized that since I'd filtered my default friends page, none of the journals of the friends I'd added in the past few months had been showing up. So, NOW you exist to me! This is amazing.

So did you go visit? What happened if so? I forgot to ask when I saw you in meatspace last night...
