United Breaks Guitars

They say that Revenge is a dish best served cold, but here's an example that's sweet and hot.

Here's the story:

Musician Dave Carroll with the Sons of Maxwell were traveling on United Airlines to Nebraska via Chicago O'Hare when passengers noticed baggage handlers throwing guitar cases.

Turns out they broke Dave's guitar and his heart.

United Airlines admitted fault, but Dave was finally told after a year of chasing red herrings and wild geese that he would not be compensated for his loss.

So, Dave promised the last person to finally say "no" to compensation (Ms. Irlweg) that he would write and produce three songs chronicling his experience.

Hello, United Airlines, they say that any publicity is good publicity. I'm not so sure about that!

He did what any rightful man would do in that situation and sought revenge... sweet sweet revenge!

Love it!
