    Walgreen’s is always better than CVS – a good lesson to learn. What a marvelous example of a good employee and, even better, a good human being.

    I was shocked to hear how unhelpful and plain rude the CVS employee was. We’re in the UK and got passport photos done for our son when he was about two months old. We used a small photo shop that looks like it has a similar set up to the sort of pharmacy that you used. They took a few different shots and had one that was suitable within a minute or two and charged £10 for it (about $15). It’s good to see that your story ended well and that you ultimately managed to get the photos done by a helpful employee.

  3. Yikes. When we went to Rite Aid with our non-cooperative 6-months-old, they tried for a while, and she kept moving, so after about 10 minutes and 10 failed attempts, they did lay her on the counter, and an employee stood on the counter next to her and took the photo. It took a long time, but everyone was really happy to do that.

    I can’t imagine CVS (aka The most depressing place in the world) employees have anything more fun to do than taking baby photos.

    We recently moved to an area with a Walgreens right down the road, after living in the land of nothing but CVS for pretty much our entire lives. Let me tell you, I absolutely adore Walgreens. I’ve never experienced a grumpy employee there, and the biggest difference to me- the store is CLEAN! CVS is always so dark and dingy, no matter which you go to. Walgreens just always seems so cheerful and bright. Glad you were able to find a place to get your picture done, and glad you’re now a fellow convert!
