Snow White

This was posted by Stan Kegel on the groaners listserv. It sticks in my mind that I had a version of this one, but I cannot find any documentation of such.

Snow White received a camera as a gift. She joyfully took many pictures of the Dwarves, the forest, the animals, etc. She quickly finished her first roll, and immediately took the film into town to be developed.

“How long before they’re ready?” Snow asked the clerk.

He informed her it would be at least 6 days, as they had to send it to the Big City to be processed (remember, they didn’t have 1-hour processing OR FedEx back then!)

After a week, she went to get the finished photos. The clerk told her they were not yet back from the processor.

“Come back next week,” he said to her.

Of course, as the story goes, she returned the following week for her 4×6 glossies, but gasped! They still had not returned!

Snow White was so distraught that she started to sob right there at the counter.

The clerk, trying to console her, (and wanting to relax the other customers, who were already starting to shift uncomfortably, so they didn’t bolt from the store) said kindly, “Don’t worry, Dear. Someday your prints will come.”
