the stupidest thing I have heard in a loooong time

so I upload a ton of pix of my niece, some of which are 18 years old, and order new prints. I get to walgreens and they tell me i need a release for photos that old???? And laws are now retroactive for companies that no longer exist?????
THEN
they tell me I have to pay for the pictures I CAN"T EVEN BUY because I don't have aforementioned release.
I am so fried....grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
No amount of chocolate or working out or griping is going to make me happy tonight. NOW WHAT DO I DO??????????????????????
Any ideas will be GLADLY accepted...three stinkin shots out of 20 and NONE of them are less than 15 years old. Sheesh. Bureaucracy stinks....
I didn't even KNOW about that LAW??? Is it a law? or a policy?????
ON the other hand...they thought one of the pictures I took of her was professional. That felt kind of good before the top of my head blew off when he told me I had to pay for the prints regardless of me taking them or not. I told him, after I picked my brain matter off the ceiling, that he could keep them all.
And...not a single expletive deleted uttered. No raised voice. Small consolations.

I just bought photo paper to copy them here at home. I spend $13 for 3 pictures...don't want to do the math on that one!!
So the pictures will be in that darn book, no matter WHAT!! BET ME I'll knuckle under to Walgreens... LOL

I don't know if this is dishonest but you might try Walmart - no one but you actually prints out the photo's and since they are your own shots this wouldn't be an issue. I hope this works for you and saves you some $'s.
