Stupidity only a mother could love
this is a post for the blog www.thinkinginshadesofgrey.blogspot.com
This is at the viewing appointment for a photography shoot that took place the day before. Please note: The child was whiney and uncooperative, the mother simple and interfering.
Another note: Due to my awesomeness, I actually managed to get some really pretty shots while still making the kid laugh and not realising she was having a shoot done.
After the welcome, I start the slideshow of the photos I managed to get.
"So do we get a calendar?"
"You can buy a calendar today, sure. Or if you buy a package of your photographs I'll throw in some free, usually $50 each"
*picks up this years calendar* "So it'll look like this?"
"Will she (her kid) be in it?"
"Yes in a thumbnail just like the others you see there. This year we have over 2000 kids in the calendar."
"Well as I said, we have 2000+ kids in there: all the kids we've photographed from all over Australia."
"Can she have more than one?"
"...If you want to buy 1000 calendars I'll give her a page of her own."
*other customer stifles a laugh*
"Her birthday is in September, so..."
*cutting in, getting uninterested* "It goes my alphabetical order. Your surname is B, so it'd be early in the year."
"...Do you just want to buy a calendar today?"
"I just want a calendar"
*noticing other customers waiting for assistance* "Okay, you choose the picture you want to go in the calendar and I'll come back in a moment..."
"...so are you ready to order a calendar?"
"Oh I don't think I'll get one. But I want this photo in it."
"So you want me to put your child's photo in the calendar..."
"Even though you don't want one..."
"And you'll never see it..."
"Okay, I'll just make a note of that image. *scrawling obviously in the air* Okay, thankyou for coming in today, and having the shoot with us today"
*happily leaving* "No problems. Thanks!"
