Kinko's.... You can't do anything right.

UPDATED!

Went back last night. It was a disaster.

I tell them they're not folding right. They fix it once, hand me a copy. I give it back and say it's still a little crooked.

So they go and fix it and print 500 while I stand there reading horrible greeting cards.

They give them back to me 20 minutes later.

The back side of the brochure is flipped upside down.
Me: "um.... guys, these are still messed up"

So they print more. I start folding the crooked ones because I have 500 to hand fold in like 45 minutes and I can't dick around anymore.

Finally get them back.

THEY ARE CROOKED AGAIN.

I say fuck it, and fold them and ship them.


RIDICULOUS.

24th and M Kinkos... do not go there.Kinko's you are terrible. I had to make some copies of for the Virginia Pony Breeders Association, which is this volunteer thing I do. It's a ton of work. So after a previous disaster at Kinko's, I go back hoping it'll be different.

It's not. I get there at 7:08 in the evening. I was greeted by a locked door and this sign. The employee wasn't there by 7:15, look at the clock behind the sign. It got to be 7:25.

So I get in, email the pdf and have the prints made. Well, they sucked. They fold all screwy and the other ladies on the VPBA board are totally going to kill me. Now I'll have to go back to Kinko's and beg them to fix it. They're totally going to tell me it's my fault because that's what they do. On top of that, I've already folded about 100 of the 500 by HAND, which is one of the worst tortures known to man.

I hate Kinko's. I know it's isn't a funny post, but I really really hate you Kinko's.

I hate Kinko's too. I went to the one in Charlottesville one time and the guy raised his voice at me for no reason. Right after he offered to help he goes "MAY I PLEASE SEE YOUR DOCUMENTS?!!" It was startling and unnecessary.

but unfortunately they seem to be a necessary evil. I want mom and pop print shops.
