Do you say "drop off some film" when you ask a photo store to develop them? I've heard of "drop off" only as getting a passenger out of a car.
81)W:I'm picking out some fresh fruit for us. Did you need something?
M: Yes, but not at the supermarket. I dropped off some film at the photo store yesterday.
W: Oh, is it ready to be picked up already?
M : Yes, would you mind getting the photos for me?
Yes. To "drop off [noun]" is a common expression when you take something to a store and expect to return to pick it up. You can drop off film, clothes (for drycleaning), and a medicine prescription, for example.
