High chances are, the staff you see working at the common photo labs you see at the void-decks or HDB areas know little or evening nothing about photography. So don't be surprised if they stare blankly at you for asking your question.
And don't presume they will know because like I mentioned, some or most of them don't really know. This incident happened to a friend of mine. He had a roll of slides to develop but no time to go down RGB. He was desperate to see the results he had taken so he got it developed at a normal photo-developing shop. They mistook it as prints and they cross-processed it, and the results was very "experimental" - slides with bright striking psychedelic colors.

I'll be surprised if the staff at that lab didn't scold your friend, as cross-processing can cause chemical contamination. If so, I'll never visit that lab for C41 processing again.

Thanks for digging up those, my search didn't turn them up =)
So, cross-processing is to use the wrong developer solution... but pushing and pulling, is it to artificially under- or over-expose film in the darkroom? The push/pull is quite chim.
