okay - i called the gal behind the photo developing counter
it turns out they were hiring and yours truly got a
job. today was my first day. I just push the film through
the developing machine.
the cool thing is: if there are fucked up photos, i get the
negatives. i can take them home or make copies for whatever
there's a shredding device near the trash can, and you're
supposed to throw out all mistakes, but......... eh.
