Snapfish: My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

I recently tried to order photos from my flickr account using Snapfish, and quickly hit a wall. Their flickr integration would not show me my photostream in order, instead opting to use something that wasn’t date or name sorted, and then when I created a photoset specifically for this purpose, I was confronted with a mysterious error page at HP’s website when I tried to finalize my order. Over all, it was a very annoying experience and after making three or four attempts to order my prints, I gave up and went to another site.

Then the emails started.

I guess you thought you'd get away with it. Well, you can't.
I guess you thought you’d get away with it. Well, you can’t.

The incessant, frantic late-night emails. If I had given them my phone number I have no doubt that I’d need to change my number.

Nice meeting you, I am going to make you so happy and I’ll do it cheaper than anyone else!

Sounds great. Nice meeting you, too. Your site kind of sucks though and I don’t use Adobe Flash because it isn’t 2004.

Thanks for giving me your photos. Get some prints now!

Already tried. I tried at least three times. I can’t get past your shopping cart without an error page.

Did you forget your order?

No, I tried to complete my order, but it didn’t work. I’ll try again.

Nope, still doesn’t work.

I know I talked to you just four days ago, but I’ve made some improvements to myself and I’m completely changed now. I’m even offering a month of services for free.

I don’t know what services you could offer on a monthly basis since you sell photo prints and charge by the photo, but like I said I just don’t think it’s going to work out.


You won’t even send me photos if I try to pay you, so what possible reason do I have to believe you will send me photos for free?

What are you waiting for?

I don’t even know anymore.

Did you forget something?

I am absolutely certain that I did not forget anything.

Don’t miss these special prints!

I’m not missing them. Not even for pennies.


Sending emails at 5am after a night of drinking never works out for anyone.


You waited a whole 20 minutes for a response at 5am? Go to bed and seek help.
